Join us at Cambridge Raceway and enjoy live coverage of the Melbourne Cup on the big screen, followed by on course harness racing action. With a range of hospitality options we have something to suit every racegoer.

Entry is free into our Public Bar which provides the perfect spot for the live broadcast and promises to be a great afternoon (and evening) of entertainment. You can also reserve a table for only $20 & enjoy a bucket of 4x Corona on arrival*.

There is also the option to head upstairs where, for $120pp, you get a drink on arrival, continuous canapes, and a three course buffet. There will be a live and silent auction with all proceeds going to the Wish 4 Fish Charitable Trust.
