Glam’s 2016 Guide To The UBET Adelaide Cup

Make your long weekend a damn good one…

The UBET Adelaide Cup is like music to the ears of most Adelaidians. Why? Well because more than just an awesome event, it also means a long weekend (for most). And as usual we like to make your life a little easier when it comes to planning how you will spend your extra day of leisure, so we have put together a guide to the UBET Adelaide Cup and beyond…

The Real Deal

UBET Adelaide Cup Day

We all know that the main event is at the Morphettville Racecourse. And this year there is plenty of action to keep you satisfied. With the usual suspects like Fashions on the Field, the big race and a day packed full of fun, General Admission tickets cost just $25 for adults.

If you are looking to spend the day in style, then maybe you will opt for one of the hospitality packages. We like the look of The Starting Gate… For just $50 you get access to one of the hottest locations to enjoy the day. With stylish bars, gourmet food, DJ entertainment, plus a cocktail on arrival, this is all glamour and no tack as you take in the sights!

10am – Gates open
11:30am to 1pm – Myer Fashions on the Field – Registration opens
1:05pm to 1:30pm – Myer Fashions on the Field – Heats commence
1:40pm to 1:55pm – Myer Fashions on the Field – Preliminary finals commence
2:10pm – Myer Fashions on the Field – SA State Final
4:10pm – UBET Adelaide Cup

Monday Fun Day

Not everyone might be so keen on spending their day off at the races, so we have you guys covered too!

Artwine – Open from 11am until 5pm, they will be serving up platters including a very special UBET Adelaide Cup Dessert Platter served with a glass of Coco Sparkling. Don’t mind if we do!

Mt Lofty Ranges Vineyard – Having just launched their new Autumn Menu, this is the perfect place to long lunch on your Monday off!

The Moseley – Forget Sunday sesh, we are all about a Monday sesh! Enjoy some chilled drinks and great food on their balcony as the sun sets. Plus there will be tunes playing from 6pm. Yes please!

The Night Before

Now let’s be honest, the UBET Adelaide Cup long weekend isn’t all about the big race. Considering it means that for most there will be no waking up to go to work on Monday, we figured you might want to know where you can party Sunday night!
