The classy racing will be complemented by the style off the track at Myer Fashions on the Field, where racegoers are encouraged to compete for a prize pool valued at over $50,000. The competition will also feature the coveted Longines Prize for Elegance where one fashionista will receive the Longines DolceVita Timepiece (estimated value $2,850). Judged by ATC ambassadors Isabelle Cornish and Grace Huang, alongside Myer ambassadors Jodi Anasta and Kris Smith, the event is one not to be missed.

Little Sydney will again entice food lovers and Sydney’s gastronomical social set to Royal Randwick. Again welcoming Sydney’s iconic restaurants Icebergs, Chiswick and China Doll back to Royal Randwick in 2016, Little Sydney promises to be the hottest ticket to the track this Sydney Autumn Carnival. Tickets are available through www.theATC.com.au at $450 per person.

Racegoers can also enjoy the Little Bondi pop up on the Leger Lawn, bringing a taste of Bondi Beach to the track with favourites from Icebergs, The Bucket List and Da Orazio Pizza + Porchetta. The Clinique Pamper Lounge will be on hand for complimentary makeup touch ups, while members can enjoy pop up bars by Veuve Cliquot, Moët & Chandon and Schweppes or dine on fresh oysters at the ‘Get Shucked’ Oyster Bar.
