The eyes of the racing world will turn to Rosehill during March for the world’s richest race for two-year-olds, the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.
Today, I had the memorable experience of being welcomed by the Australian Turf Club Racing to attend the members opening of a new and improved race club at Rosehill Gardens.
Morning tea began with a beautiful walk through the Might and Power garden entrance followed by a warm welcome by the course staff as we entered the grand stand member building.
The Rosehill Gardens events centre is currently capable of seating 2000 people, while a $24 million upgrade at the Gardens is already under way to modernise the grandstand and enclose the betting ring.
We anticipate many race meets at this track as the redevelopment will beckon a new lifestyle and entertainment destination in Sydney.
We all know that race-day fashion is super stylish, smart and glamorous, but you need to think practically too: take a shawl or jacket to keep warm if it is chilly; avoid uncomfortable shoes as you may be standing for most of the day, and ladies, avoid exposing too much skin – think ‘demure’.
Ensure you comply to the specific dress code for the area of the racecourse for which you have a ticket. Enjoy yourself, meet new people and enjoy the atmosphere the Australian Turf Club has to offer.
