It’s big, it’s blue, it’s sparkly – it’s the Ladbroke’s Blue Diamond Stakes Day at Caulfield.
Along with Flemington’s Super Saturday, the Blue Diamond is one of the biggest racing events this end of the Victorian racing calendar, and Melbourne Racing Club have packed the day with some pretty fine offerings to make the most of this fact.
Triple J favourites Kingswood are playing live on stage after the last race, but we’re working backwards here. They’ll be preceded by a Pimms Garden Party complete with lawn games (presumably boules), street food pop-ups, and the Style Stakes contest for stylishly dressed girls and guys. For those in the market for something a little more exclusive there’s The Veuve Clicquot Lawn which includes Veuve Clicquot (obviously), other beverages, and a grazing menu all on your own exclusive grass ‘precinct’.
Without a doubt the event will be swarming with the usual Melbourne socialites so keep an eye out for them posing in front of the hedges in their designer gear.
