Flemington Hosts Winter Racing Showpiece
The Victoria Racing Club (VRC) will host its showpiece winter race meeting with Flemington Finals Day tomorrow. The race meeting brings together the most in-form gallopers across a range of divisions and distances. Saturday also marks the return of racehorse owners to Flemington for the first time in more than three months, with up to 30 owners per race able to get back on track and support their much-loved gallopers. The exciting nine-race program features the finals of nine separate race series, including the Listed Victorian Sprint Series Final, the Listed Taj Rossi Series Final and the newly introduced 2YO Sprint Series Final. Promising two-year-old Cherry Tortoni (Kennedy Taj Rossi Series Final) is one of six last-start Flemington winners to take their place on Finals Day with others including Persan (G.H. Mumm Mahogany Series Final), I Am Someone (Furphy Victorian Sprint Series Final), Great Duchess (Jim Beam Leilani Series Final), Lord Belvedere (Lexus Banjo Patterson Series Final) and Heptagon (Seppelt Wines CRV-VRC Winter Championship Series Final).
