WHAT: The pinnacle of Sydney Spring Carnival, The Star Epsom Day, will see Sydney’s punters come together amongst a backdrop of unbeatable fashion, hospitality and entertainment. Royal Randwick will play host to Sydney-siders celebrating a well-earned long weekend with loads of on-course action including a Chandon themed pop-up bar and a live DJ throughout the day.

Punters will be thrilled by the fast-paced action and high stakes on the track with close to $2 million in prizemoney across three Group 1 races, including the feature race of the Sydney Spring Carnival, The Star Epsom Handicap, which has doubled in prizemoney to $1 million.

Bondi Beach will arrive at Royal Randwick with the launch of The Bucket List Beach Club Marquee. Bringing the best music, drinks and a not to be missed party trackside over five big race days, this new premium precinct will bring the best of Bondi’s iconic beach venue to the track.

ATC Members will have exclusive access to the Möet & Chandon pop-up bar, a DJ and the Sydney Spring Carnival photo wall, designed exclusively by paper artist James Gordon.

For those who want to continue the celebrations; The Star, the official post-race day party venue, will be providing transport to The Star, where guests can enjoy a range of entertainment choices.
