Don a fancy dress or suit and head to Randwick. Spring has officially arrived in Sydney, so that means racing season has too. Returning for another carnival of fashion, food and action, Colgate Optic White Stakes Day is the first group race of the 2018 Everest Carnival offering racegoers to shake off the winter chill.
Held Saturday, September 15 at Royal Randwick, there'll be a variety of food and drinks to enjoy while The Mews will provide a spot to hang out with friends and soak in the entertainment. Kick back at the Colgate Optic White Lounge marquee and stop by the bandstand where artists including Hype Duo and Georgia White are set to perform.
As always, looking the part is one of those iconic aspects of going to the races. Want a hot tip? Incorporate a splash of red into your getup, and you'll have a chance of winning the fashion-spotting competition. And, if you're feeling extra lucky, you can enter the On Top of the World competition, which will get you a money-can't-buy experience on Everest Day: two night's accommodation at The Star, a buffet breakfast at Sokyo, a helicopter transfer to Randwick and a dining package while you're there. Plus, when you return to The Star that night (via limousine), you'll enjoy dinner at BLACK Bar & Grill.
Stakes Day is one of the Everest Carnival's headline events. Everest Carnival runs across six weeks and culminates in the world's richest horse race on turf, The $13 Million TAB Everest, on Saturday, October 13.
