The Star Comes Out To Play This Racing Season

Published on 1 April 2016

The Star celebrates the Autumn Racing Carnival in style as one of the most anticipated races approaches – The Star Doncaster Mile. Run tomorrow, Saturday, 2 April as part of The Championships Day 1 at Royal Randwick, The Star is the proud naming rights sponsor of the $3 million Group 1 race.

Racegoers can join The Star’s ambassadors’ Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe, model Ryan Channing and TV personalities Carissa Walford and Krit Schmidt as they take to the track as part of this world-class day of racing. Media personalities Emma Freedman and Sally Obermeder will be trackside in The Star Marquee, with Emma contributing some race day tips to the VIP spectators.

Celebrations are set to continue well past the last race as The Star, the official entertainment partner of the Australian Turf Club, hosts the official racing after party. Racegoers should be on the lookout for Carissa and Krit on track as they hand-select some lucky punters to return to The Star for the exclusive event. 

For those who miss out on the money-can’t-buy after party invite, complimentary buses will be provided back to The Star following the last race along with The Star’s Passport to Play which features special offers on property including $15 glasses of Moet & Chandon, $10 Mocha Martini’s at Rock Lily and much more! These are only available to racegoers on the day. To top it off, Australian superstar Guy Sebastian will be performing at Rock Lily at 8:30PM. Better yet, it’s free!
