Saturday saw Sydney’s finest punters and partygoers at Royal Randwick to be part of the festivities at David Jones Australia Derby Day. It was a beautiful day. The new accessible sections of the new grandstand provided new levels of comfort and service for guests to the track, with the Chairman’s Club being opulent. Tabcorp had a beautifully presented marquee with many guests including celebrity attendee Danielle Spencer, enjoying the French bubbly and nosh. Black Caviar was in its element delivering to the watchful crowd another victory. The Members after party was in full swing with a disc jockey pumping out tunes that had the dance floor full and others left to groove in their seats. We look forward to more excitement throughout The BMW Sydney Carnival.
