Punters head down to Edge Geelong for the Geelong Cup After Party
Giddy Up! Head to the Geelong Racing Club for the Bet365 Geelong Cup this year then continue celebrations and hopefully a big win at Edge Geelong for the Geelong Cup After Party.
Punters can continue race day celebrations at Edge for the Geelong Cup After Party by grabbing one of the free shuttle buses into Geelong CBD, and then head down to Edge for live entertainment including acoustic acts and DJ’s from 5.30pm and free entry to all patrons.
The Geelong Cup is considered the ‘Gateway to Glory’ of the Spring Racing Carnival – as it often boasts the Melbourne Cup winners a fortnight later, such as Media Puzzle in 2002, Americain (2010) and Dunaden (2011).
A Public Holiday for Geelong, locals flock to the Geelong Cup at the Geelong Race Course for the day, which hosts around 18,000 punters for the Geelong Cup each year, with punters in their finest (or not so finest) threads. The Geelong Cup Fashions on the Field are certainly one to watch for the array of colours and fashions, and children and families are also welcome to come enjoy the race on the front lawn with a picnic. The race offers free grand stand seating, roving entertainment and a free shuttle service to the South Geelong Station.
Those not attending the Geelong Cup at the Geelong Racing Club are welcome to head down to Edge Geelong to watch the race on our big screens as we are open all day from 9am for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with the kitchen open and serving meals from our Edge menu.
This year’s Bet365 Geelong Cup is being held on the Wednesday October 24th, 2018 at the Geelong Racing Club.
Gates will be open at 10.30am.
