Tickets to the 2017 BMW Caulfield Cup have gone on sale this week. And, this year the Melbourne Racing Club have teamed up with some new international partners.
The three-day racing, food and fashion spectacle in October will see Caulfield racegoers enjoy a renovated VIP Heath Enclosure showcasing West Hollywood’s famous E.P & L.P Rooftop Bar and Restaurant. Founded by popular DJ Grant Smillie, the iconic Aussie-run hot spot will be serving up true L.A. flair in a new area called The Avenue.
Another win for visitors to Caulfield this year is the stylish new Moët and Chandon Lawn, where guests can enjoy an all-inclusive day of champagne and premium beverages accompanying a stylish grazing menu, located alongside the luxurious David Jones Fashion Stable.
With $11.2 million in total prize money across the 2017 BMW Caulfield Cup Carnival high-powered fields are expected. This includes a wave of international raiders from the Northern Hemisphere, from which the Caulfield Cup has been won on four occasions. However, they will have their work cut out this year with local heroine Jameka confirming plans to fly the Aussie flag and defend her Cup title.
Punters are urged to plan ahead and take advantage of the General Admission Early Bird Ticketing offer which is on sale now until Sunday 24 September to ensure they don’t miss the start of the world-famous Spring Racing Carnival where It’s Just Not Racing.
