The nine-race program at Flemington Racecourse also features the $2 million Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m), the pinnacle for three-year-old sprinters that cemented Home Affairs’ position as one of the world’s most valuable colts last year, while the $1 million TAB Empire Rose (1600m) for the fillies and mares will crown the next queen of the turf. The incredible action on the track will be equalled by the fashion attractions around the grounds, with a black and white theme providing fashion colour guidance for ladies, while gentlemen will don their sartorial best featuring their own take on elegant blacks, greys and complementary touches.

Be at Flemington Racecourse when, yet again, a new chapter is written, another legend born and new dreams come true before your very eyes. The undercard features the Group 3 Darley Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) for two-year-olds and Group 3 The Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes (1400m) for mares plus the popular Listed Resimax Group Subzero Handicap (1400m), a race restricted to grey horses.

There are not enough words to describe the exquisite looks, fashion and racing experiences that make the Kennedy Oaks Day celebrations so renowned. Commonly referred to as “ladies day”, women of all ages come together at Flemington Racecourse to put their best possible look ‘out there’ for all to see, as they don the most creative looks, colours, accessories and millinery. The day’s thrilling racing highlight is the $1 million Group 1 Kennedy Oaks which crowns the nation’s top three-year-old filly. Damien Oliver confirmed his place as one of the greats of the Australian turf when winning the 2021 Kennedy Oaks aboard Willowy. Oliver delivering a record-equalling 126th career Group 1, a feat only matched by the legendary jockey George Moore.

We booked a tour for Euro 2020, in July 2021, tickets, accommodation, Hermitage and Cathedrals tour, all A++++. Great service, super support, nothing too much trouble at all, used the agency twice now. Super happy.

Great trip all round I booked not knowing what I was going to getting, a little sceptical and apprehensive due to never using these guys before. I could not have been more wrong, the service has been great and the tour has also been great. Mike the tour guide and the girls in the office are 5 star. Even had a disaster and left my passports in the hotel safe of one city and Mike and the team could not do enough to help me get these back. Really appreciate your professionalism and kindness. Will see you at the World Cup ?

Highly Recommend Just back from Germany where World of Discoveries organized a fantastic custom trip for us to the Euro 2024 football (soccer) tournament, covering Frankfurt and Cologne. From start to finish, their communication was excellent, ensuring we were well-informed and prepared for our adventure. Our in-country host, Mike, was exceptional. He went above and beyond to keep everyone updated on game day, making sure everything ran smoothly. His knowledge and enthusiasm added a special touch to our experience. Seats obtained by them were great too! The hotel selections were spot on. In Cologne, our hotel was perfectly situated, allowing us to easily walk to the fan zone and along the river, soaking in the vibrant atmosphere of the tournament alongside fellow fans. The convenience and quality of the accommodations truly enhanced our trip. Overall, World of Discoveries exceeded our expectations with their attention to detail, customer service, and seamless organization. They made our Euro 2024 experience unforgettable, and we wouldn't hesitate to book with them again for future adventures. Thank you, World of Discoveries, for an incredible journey!
