Well well well here we are – October 19 and yet another raceday down! Just like that Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day is done and dusted, and to describe the day as having been an absolute delight would be doing it an injustice! It was glorious! Welcoming this year’s BMW Caulfield Cup Carnival could not have been accomplished in a better manner than through a wonderful day basking under the beaming sunlight this past Saturday at Caulfield Racecourse!
The relaxed and vibrant atmosphere from day one of the three day racing carnival welcomed the carnival to the scene in true Melbourne spirit! With bright blue skies and not a cloud in the eyes sight, the track hosted joyful and excited racegoers from all parts of the city to celebrate and join in on the racing action!
With such beautiful weather and a track full of lively guests, there was absolutely no where I would have rathered spend my day than inside the opulent and stunning Moet & Chandon Lawn precinct. Think bubbly and excited racegoers showcasing fashion of the most elite kind, and of course smiles and laughter all day long. Not to mention premium and eclectic catering from Tommy Collins and stunning gold and white goblets full of a number of Moet & Chandon varieties accompany the excitement all day long.
Decked out with full white Moet decor, the picturesque precinct bought to the track Hampton style white sofas and cushions, white and gold umbrellas, and a number of fully decked out Moet & Chandon bars to set the scene for the racegoers!
Fashion stakes were set high with designs from Rebecca Valance, Cappellazzo Couture and Thurley making their pleasing appearances. Men made their mark on the track in fine form with bursts of colour and new patterns in the form of socks, ties, and shirts. The day allowed freedom of style and that was exactly what racegoers jumped on board for!
After experiencing the lavish marquee this past Saturday, I cannot wait to welcome day two of the Carnival to Melbourne this Saturday 21 October BMW Caulfield Cup Day! Even more fun, more fashion, and more exhilaration! Bring it on.
