Cup Week starts with a fusion of monochrome fashion, first-class racing and celebrations at AAMI Victoria Derby Day.
Regarded as one of the most prestigious days of racing of the spring, AAMI Victoria Derby Day features a card of nine Group races, four at the elite Group 1 level. The feature Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby, worth over AUD $2 million, is Australia’s premier staying classic for three-year olds.
Off the track, the fashion stakes are equally impressive, thanks to the Myer Fashions on the Field competition for both men and women. Ladies embrace the traditional black and white palette, while men often choose to wear a grey morning suit and top hat, creating classic racing elegance in a larger than life world of glamour and sophistication.
