This year, we offered our clients the chance to watch the world’s best horses and jockeys battle it out down the Flemington turf, whilst sipping on a complimentary glass of sparkling wine - after having indulged in a moorish morning tea, and brilliant buffet lunch.
Equipped with tote facilities, a race book and access to television screens, these savvy spectators won’t miss a moment of the celebrated Melbourne Cup activity.
When the day has come to an end, and their voice have turned 'hoarse', they will ride a return coach to the four and half star Stamford Plaza.
