‘Family day’

Emirates Stakes Day concludes the Melbourne Cup Carnival with a day for the family. It is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the perfect way to draw a close to the excitement of the week. The fashion is a pleasant mix of understated style and fun.

On the racing front, the 'family day' of the Carnival is packed with fast action and excitement, featuring Victoria's foremost 1600m event, the $1 million Group 1 Emirates Stakes, and the unforgettable weight-for-age VRC Sprint Classic, previously won twice by the unbeatable Black Caviar.

As a week of unparalleled racing winds down, it all heats up off the track with an abundance of free activities and live entertainment for children of all ages. Emirates Stakes Day is a racegoers favourite, especially as a relaxing way to complement attending one of the other major Melbourne Cup Carnival racedays.

Family Day also features Emirates Stakes Day Fashions on the Field for the younger racegoers and families giving them the opportunity to impress in the fashion stakes and claim fantastic prizes. The day really is the perfect way for families to come together and instil the spirit and tradition of racing into our youth.

Enjoy the excellent range of hospitality and entertainment on offer, and soak up the excitement of this unbelievable time of year and celebrate the end of a remarkable week on the Australian social and sporting calendars.

The official flower for Emirates Stakes Day is the red rose and can be purchased from flower sellers near the entrances, upon arrival to Flemington.
