A day shaped by racing tradition; the Sportsbet.com.au Ballarat Cup is the perfect way to celebrate the end of an always-spectacular Spring Racing Carnival.
Reminisce with friends from the past, soak up the colourful atmosphere and enjoy the roar of the crowd as our finest thoroughbreds battle it out down the straight.
With a ten-race card and the greatest prizemoney in its history, Ballarat’s premier racetrack will feature both the running of the $200,000 Sportsbet.com.au Ballarat Cup and the first Victorian flat race conducted in a clockwise direction in over 60 years…the inaugural $200,000 Magic Millions Victorian Clockwise Classic.
Live music, tempting eateries, free flowing bubbles and all the big screen action will bring excitement to your day, but it’s Myer Fashions on the Field where the competition really heats up. Known to bring out the most fashion savvy, the stakes and the heels are high…
So ditch the denim and don your hat for the Sportsbet.com.au Ballarat Cup!
