A fresh take on Spring Racing arrives at Morphettville Racecourse this October with a series of race days featuring distinct theming and new hospitality precincts to deliver South Australians an unforgettable trackside party.
Caulfield Cup Day is ladies day where spring fashion – romantic, feminine looks and delicate fabrics - will be at the forefront.Cox Plate is gentlemen’s day at Morphettville – where the men will return to the heyday of racing when dapper style filled the racecourse stands.Victoria Derby Day is the day to indulge in the sophisticated side of racing, with black and white fashion the brief for the day.Melbourne Cup sits as the pinnacle of the Australian racing calendar and thousands will descend on Morphettville to enjoy a glamorous, champagne-filled day, where race-goers are invited to dress to impress.The action on-track is just as exciting with a full program of thoroughbred racing at Morphettville each day, as well as the races from Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival streamed live around the course.
Mr Wilkinson said whether race-goers are after a glamorous party wearing their racing best or a laid back lawn party, there will be an area to suit everyone at Morphettville.
“The Spring Carnival Fiesta precinct will be launched this season, while Festival Gardens – the place to be seen during autumn’s racing carnival and the Punters’ Lounge - the perfect space for a gents’ day out - will return for spring after their popular launch in May.” The trackside Spring Carnival Fiesta is front and centre on Morphettville’s Champagne Lawns.
Groups of 10 or more can reserve a table, chairs and an umbrella with food and beverage stalls, and betting facilities at race-goers’ fingertips.
The area is ideal for group celebrations, whether it’s a football break-up or a bride-to-be’s hens party.
“The Spring Carnival Fiesta will provide a party atmosphere where you can immerse yourself in all of the racing action and enjoy the spring weather.
It’s perfectly designed for large social groups or special occasions,” Mr Wilkinson said.
