Around Australia – party, party, party with Australia’s top event organiser.

EGT mediaTVI am not overly keen on horses and betting, but I love a great event and party and from my chat recently with Lisa Patroni of the Victoria Racing Club, it appears that major events, parties and fun … and of course horse racing, is what the VRC is all about!

With the Victoria Racing Club the organiser of Australia’s leading racing events, many rated as top international events, including the Melbourne Cup Carnival, right at the pinnacle of world horse racing events … and believe, I have been to the Melbourne Cup and not only that, in the social world’s famous place to be seen, the Birdcage and of course the Emirates pavilion!  I can still hear the champagne corks popping!

The Victoria Racing Club has been around a long time, since 1864 when the VRC commenced the management of Flemington Racecourse where it is still located, on the outskirts of Melbourne, with the VRC continuing to uphold the traditions that have made it Australia’s premier racing club, with currently 170 staff, that run an incredible 23 race meetings per season, including the world-renowned Melbourne Cup Carnival.
