Sneak Peek at Spring Classic Preview Day
Flemington’s inaugural Spring Classic midweek meeting will take place today. The raceday will see the 3YO winners of the Victoria Derby Trial (1800m) and Kennedy Oaks Trial (1800m) earn automatic entries in the Gr1 Victoria Derby (2500m) and Gr1 Crown Oaks (2500m) respectively. The meeting has been added to the Melbourne racing calendar to provide a stepping-stone for Flemington’s classic staying tests of the spring, and will give racegoers a chance to get a glimpse of the up and coming key players of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Gates open at 12pm.
