The Emirates Stakes, or Stakes Day, is Victoria’s richest 1600m race with $1 million in prize money. It is a Group 1 quality handicap raced at Flemington on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Racing Carnival.
The Emirates Stakes Day is also known as “Family Day” and is fast growing in popularity due to its relaxed atmosphere. Throughout the day, families can enjoy events specifically catered for children. There’s jumping castles, pony rides, face paint, mini golf and even a nail bar! And for the fashionistas, Fashions on The Field is held for all different age groups. If you’re a family who likes to dress to impress this is your chance to be in the running for some amazing prizes!
Here are some of my favourite outfits for the little ones for Stakes Day.
