Friends, fun and the finale of Cup Week, Seppelt Wines Stakes Day is a day at Flemington not to be missed. It’s a celebration of the week that’s just been, filled with quality racing, fashion and entertainment. Let the hair and heels down a little as the pace off the track softens for a family friendly day out.

The pace on-track doesn’t slow though with two Group 1 races. The illustrious A$2 million Group 1 LKS Mackinnon Stakes is the ultimate weight-for-age test for middle distance horses at Australia’s premier track, while the $1 million Group 1 Darley Classic will see some of the world’s fastest horses fly up the famous Flemington straight.

It’s also a big day for fashion’s future trendsetters with Stakes Day Fashions on the Field focusing on children and family. With a fun, friendly atmosphere, an abundance of free activities for children, as well as great racing, Seppelt Wines Stakes Day is the perfect way to finish Cup Week.

Seppelt Wines Stakes Day

THE final day of Flemington’s famed Melbourne Cup Carnival will from this year be known as Seppelt Wines Stakes Day (was Emirates Stakes Day).

Model Rebecca Harding helped celebrate the new five-year deal yesterday, which also marks the 40th anniversary between Seppelt Wines and the Victoria Racing Club. VRC Chief Executive Officer Neil Wilson said it was a boost for the carnival. “The VRC is thrilled to welcome Seppelt Wines as the naming rights partner for the Melbourne Cup Carnival’s final day, Seppelt Wines Stakes Day,” Mr Wilson said.

Seppelt, taking over Stakes Day naming rights from Emirates, was founded in 1851 and will this year have a presence in both Flemington’s Birdcage Enclosure and The Park.
