As the winter dew makes way for the sunshine of spring, the city of Melbourne comes alive to the sound of thundering hooves and the clink of glassware. The iconic Spring Racing Carnival takes its place at the top of every well-versed Melburnian's to-do list as the best gallopers from across the globe converge in Victoria.

The hours of preparation and training through winter begins to come to fruition for the trainers, jockeys and stable employees who have worked tirelessly to prepare their charges for the best thoroughbred racing on offer in the Southern Hemisphere.

Come September, Melbourne buzzes with the sights and sounds which signal the arrival of the world-renowned Spring Racing Carnival.

Passion wears many colours at the Spring Racing Carnival from the flowers to the silks, to the fashions, fascinators and vibrant hues of the food choices. From September through to November, the city bursts to life with hope, elation and desire.

Across 64 days, the Spring Racing Carnival takes in Victoria's famed racetracks, showcasing high-profile feature races as well as sensational Country Cups. With events such as the BMW Caulfield Cup, the William Hill Cox Plate and the Emirates Melbourne Cup forming the centrepiece, the Spring Racing Carnival boasts some of the world's most illustrious Group one races.

However, the Spring Racing Carnival is much more than racing. It is an event where there is as much focus on form as there is on fascinators, suits and social occasions. It is an event like no other, where sport collides with the best food, fashion and the vibrancy of spring.

This is the Spring Racing Carnival, where passion wears many colours.
