Melbourne Cup Luncheon

MelbCup Avatar

Join us trackside at Hawkesbury for a stunning day of food and fashion celebrating the running of the 2017 Melbourne Cup!

Australia's greatest race attracts attention worldwide and its unique spectacle provides the perfect opportunity to get dressed up and party.  

There isn't a more scenic place to watch the great race than at Hawkesbury Race Course, complete with betting facilities, entertainment, super sweeps, bar, and of course the great race live on the big screen at 3pm! 

To add to the fun we will be awarding prizes for best dressed and a millinery award for the best hat. 

The stunning Luncheon Package will include:

- A Glass of French Champagne on arrival

- Delicious canapes plus 2 Course Meal

- $10-00 betting voucher per guest

Tickets are $77 per person. 

Our MC for the day is none other than champion jockey Malcolm Johnston, one of the most popular riders of any era worldwide. His relationship with the legendary Kingston Town is among the most admired, with Johnston on board for 25 of the horses' 30 career victories including his memorable 1980 Cox Plate.

You will hear from one of Australia's greatest sportsmen, who rode in 12 Melbourne Cups; in a year where the Sport Of Kings is blessed with the presence of the great mare Winx, who will attempt to match the feats of Kingston Town in winning three Cox Plates. Just like Hugh Bowman and Winx, Malcolm shared an incredible bond with a champion galloper.  

Nicknamed 'Miracle', Johnston won 39 Group 1 races and would go on to train over 200 winners to prove his talent with horsemanship was not only in the saddle. 

Now retired from racing, Johnston is a noted guest speaker and is often seen around the course at Hawkesbury. Perhaps his greatest hit post-racing is his Gangnam Style parody "Miracle Style" - to prove he will always have the miracle moves!
