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