Giddy-up, racing season is upon us with all the action, glamour and excitement of the track.

Get ready to run free and celebrate the best racing, fashion, entertainment and food in Australia at the 2014 Channel Seven Brisbane Racing Carnival on Saturday 10 May.

Over five weeks, 42 races and 15 celebrations, all eyes will be on Brisbane as it hosts one of the most anticipated racing carnivals in the nation.

Cup, followed by Doomben Cup Day, the James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10,000 Day and the Treasury Casino & Hotel Queensland Oaks Day.

The carnival culminates on AAMI Stradbroke Day, when the best sprinters go head-to-head in the $1.3 million AAMI Stradbroke Handicap.

Off track there is the Yellowglen Carnival Oaks Ball, the Carnival High Tea, Breakfast with the Stars, Stradbroke Eve Calcutta and fashions on the field competitions run by official fashion partner, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre.

Brisbane Racing Club CEO Dave Whimpey says more than 50,000 people are expected to attend the Brisbane Racing Carnival.

“It’s more than five days of racing, it’s something that can’t be described and must be experienced,” he tells bmag ahead of the carnival.

“There’s also world class entertainment, with X Factor winner Samantha Jade, rock icon Daryl Braithwaite and Irish-Australian electrohouse and dance music group, The Potbelleez ready to rock the race track.”
