Make the Most of the Rosehill Gardens Australian Racing Hall of Fame Day

April 24, 2019

The Australian Racing Hall of Fame Day is coming up on Saturday 18 May 2019 at Rosehill Gardens, with the event set to be a stunning autumn celebration of Australian racing. Rosehill Gardens is of course the picturesque home to the over-$3.5 million Longines Golden Slipper: the world’s richest race for two-year-old thoroughbreds. On 18 May, you’ll have the opportunity to help celebrate the past and brand new inductees to the Australian Racing Hall of Fame.

What to see

The Australian Racing Hall of Fame Day includes a number of highlights to honour the best in the industry. Stay close to the track to soak in the excitement of nine races throughout the day, and step into the Palms Brasserie to see a heritage display set up for the event complete with silks, trophies and memorabilia from Hall of Fame inductees. Australian Turf Club members will also have the opportunity to visit the Palms Brasserie for a meet and greet Q and A with notable Hall of Fame inductees Darren Beadman, Ron Quinton and Malcolm Johnston. Whether you’re sipping champagne trackside or taking advantage of the venue’s multiple dining options and bars, this is sure to be the perfect Saturday to spend with friends. Early bookings on the Australian Turf Club website can save you up to 50% on entry.

Ladies, bring out your special cocktail dresses, your heels and your modern fascinators to make the most of the beautiful autumn weather.
