Emirates Stakes Day

Emirates Stakes Day is the last day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival and offers the final Group 1 races of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. While the Felmington card has plenty of Group spring racing for punters, it is also the “Family Day” and features lots of entertainment for the whole family.

The 2017 Emirates Stakes Day will take place at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday, November 11th. Below you will find the 2017 Emirates Stakes Day race schedule.

The meeting is headlined by the running of the $2 million Group 1 Emirates Stakes (2000m) run under weight-for-age conditions by a host of Cox Plate graduates and the $1 million Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) for the season’s top sprinters.
