There is just under a week to go until the South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC) hosts Adelaide’s biggest Melbourne Cup Party which will be highlighted by an after race concert by Guy Sebastian at Morphettville Racecourse on Tuesday, 4 November 2014.
As Adelaide’s premier racing destination, Morphettville will have a fantastic day of live racing and entertainment on offer, and with over 250 screens throughout the course, it is the best place for all of the local and interstate racing action and information.
Fashion at The Races is searching for South Australia’s most stylish racegoer, so dress to impress on Melbourne Cup Day, and head to Morphettville for the SAJC heat of this statewide competition. The winner on the day will then represent the SAJC in the State Final of Fashion at The Races to be held Sportingbet SA Derby Day at Morphettville on Saturday 2 May 2015, where 16 finalists will have the opportunity to win the major prize of an Alfa Romeo Mito valued at 24,500.
General admission tickets are only $25. Patrons are encouraged to avoid hassles on the day and pre-purchase their tickets. All tickets purchased to Adelaide’s Biggest Melbourne Cup Party at Morphettville include entry to Guy’s after race concert, so patrons are welcome to come either for the entire day or just the after race entertainment.
