Melbourne Cup Memorabilia

If you are going to the track to watch the Melbourne Cup this year then you’ll probably want some Melbourne Cup memorabilia to commemorate your trip to the famous Flemington Racecourse.

Flemington Racecourse is in Melbourne is the nation’s most esteemed and visited track and is host to the very best racing events the country has to offer. Heading home from the races, spectators and punters will take with them an array of thrilling memories and hopefully a few dollars won on their wagers as well! But often we want to bring home something more than memories; an object that has value and meaning because of its connection with Melbourne Cup Day or the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival is the perfect place to pick up priceless and unique pieces of Melbourne Cup memorabilia. There are a number of great gift and souvenir stores at Flemington Racecourse with memorabilia for all budgets. Little tokens and mementos from the event can be purchased including cufflinks, pins, brooches and key-rings. These are perfect items for yourself or as a gift, and the pins and brooches can even be worn to your next race day to personalise your attire!

Some of the least expensive and most popular pieces of racing memorabilia purchased at race meetings are the race and souvenir books issued for the event. These are a great addition to any racing collection and an easy way to forever remember your visit to the track!

Online Melbourne Cup Memorabilia

The Victorian Racing Club (VRC) which runs the Melbourne Cup Carnival also has a terrific online store where you can purchase a fantastic range of racing memorabilia and Melbourne Cup merchandise.

Melbourne Cup Saddlecloths

One of the most highly sought after pieces of Melbourne Cup and other major race memorabilia are the horses’ saddlecloths. The VRC put the saddlecloths worn by that year’s Melbourne Cup winner and runners and other Spring Carnival starters up for sale after the races, both originals and replicas signed by the horse’s jockey. Original saddlecloths sometimes remain the property of the trainer, however you can still secure your own piece of racing memorabilia as the VRC produce multiple sets of saddlecloths for each race and the signed replicas are put up for auction when the one worn in the race is not available. These are the perfect piece of memorabilia and when displayed in your home make an exclusive and impressive talking point!

VRC Online Melbourne Cup Auctions

The VRC’s online auction also sells a range of other excellent racing memorabilia from the elite race events held at Flemington including signed posters, photos, prints and canvases displaying images of the most famous Melbourne Cup runners and other turf champions. Framed and signed posters of Melbourne Cup Tours and other unforgettable moments in racing history are also very popular with collectors and racing fans.

There are a great number of other stores you can visit online and in person to purchase unique racing and Melbourne Cup memorabilia pieces, just make sure that wherever you go your purchase comes with a certificate of authenticity.
