Fun, food, fashion and family vibes – the winter race day shaking up its offering
The world of racing can seem kind of regimented from the outside – you’ve got horses, suits, fancy frocks and flowing wine, but what else? It’s definitely not the sort of event you usually turn to for a family day out … or is it? Once again, Tattersall’s Racing Club is proving that you don’t have to stick to tradition to have a good time. Its annual Tiara Race Day is galloping into the Eagle Farm Racecourse on Saturday June 22 to bring food, fashion, fierce competition and family-friendly vibes all wrapped up in one huge day.
The weather may have cooled down, but Tattersall’s Tiara Race Day is heating up the track with its brand-new offering. Those who are sartorially inclined best mark the date in their calendars, because this year’s Fashions on the Field is set to be a whole new level of extra. An all-new panel of judges hosted by Tess Alexander (that’s Miss World Australia to you) will be choosing the hottest looks on show – and these prizes are worth going all out for. Singapore Airlines is putting up return tickets to Singapore for the best dressed male and female winners, while runners-up in their categories can score $500 Wintergarden vouchers to shop up a storm. Oh, and there’s also a casual $37,500 diamond and pearl tiara from A.G Jewellers to be won on the day – all in support of Legacy. Raffle tickets can be pre-purchased here.
While some people might typically not associate the races with kids, the Tattersall’s Tiara Race Day is making sure that the little ones are more than welcome at this event. Kids under 12 get in for free, and there will be a whole family area with free rides and entertainment to keep them well and truly occupied. The seriously stacked line-up of nine races this year is bound to get hearts fluttering – catch the highest ranked fillies and mares in Australia during the Group One Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara, two group three races including the Lazy Yak Tattersall’s Cup, two listed races, plus the rollicking country-themed Battle of the Bush Finals. Adding even more rural atmos is race day closer and Country Music Hall of Famer James Blundell playing a live set on the track – can we get a yeehaw?
