Overcrowded, nowhere to sit, no shade, terrible food, ran out of water in the first hour, terrible access to the site, ran out of champagne in the first couple of hours, 40 degree heat. If you're going to bother getting dressed up & doing a lovely day at the races this is not the place to do it. Needs a... More

Unless you happened to be a big fish in a little pond at the Magic Millions Carnival and spent the day in a big air conditioned tent drinking champagne out of golden goblets, then sadly, you,like me, had to endure the suffocating deafening baking swilling madness of the concrete jungle bear pit of the betting ring and members bar. Granted,... More

Have been coming for years and went to the new venue for Derby Day last year and it was terrible. Food non-existant, champagne had to line up with only 1 line. TAB next to toilet with no screens or race book. Music inside only where it was dark with concrete flooring. No music outstide by the track. Will not be... More

Have come here as an racehorse owner now for the last three years and seriously this place just gets worse every year. Stinking hot weather more than usual didn't help, but I guess the celebrity marquees didn't notice because I can guarantee that they were the only ones that had air-conditioning. Our horse was victorious thankfully and we looked forward... More

Nice racetrack, came here for magic millions - was a hot day they would do with more shade trackside but had plenty of shady spots out back. Nice backdrop on the racecourse and plenty of bars and toilets. Lots of member and VIP areas so would consider getting those tickets next time as there is far better facilities

Have been before & will go again. Excellent outing for gathering of friends. Went to a wedding there several years ago, during a race meeting in the... More

We booked, ordered and paid two months ago. $105 and change per head for 4 courses. The menu was fairly specific, & many discussions around food intolerances were had, prior to deciding and paying. We were assured my meal would be catered to... if you are ok with, "catered to", as being items simply left off not swapped. The entree... More
