The Festival of Racing is set to be full of excitement, showcasing the season's best thoroughbred racing at Victoria’s most iconic racecourses from February 9 to March 23. Nine Group 1 races are set to run kicking off with the first Group 1 of the year on Caulfield’s Family Day, the C.F Orr Stakes.

Caulfield’s Family Day will start off the Festival with a bang. The Bondi Sands Beach Club will be in full swing and it tipped to be the hottest place to be this Summer. For foodies, you will have the opportunity to dine on French cuisine with the Guest Chef Series kicking off with Phillippe Mouchel. The kids won’t be forgotten with plenty of great kid’s activities on the front lawn.

There is plenty to see and do at this year's Festival of Racing.
