The Aus­tralian Turf Club held a press con­fer­ence at Royal Rand­wick on 28th Fe­bru­ary to an­nounce six weeks of world-class rac­ing en­ter­tain­ment at its fa­mous race cour­ses, com­menc­ing on 11th March. Many lu­mi­nar­ies of the rac­ing in­dus­try at­tended the launch re­cep­tion, in­clud­ing Sydney’s cham­pion trainer Chris Waller, Aus­tralia’s first lady of rac­ing Gai Water­house, NSW’S lead­ing provin­cial trainer Kris Lees and cham­pion jockey Hugh Bow­man, as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the worlds of mod­el­ling, act­ing, de­sign and media.

Former AFL star and Nova 96.6 ra­dio host, Ryan Fitzger­ald and his Nova col­league Michael Wipfli (bet­ter known as Wippa) were an­nounced the 2017 Sydney Car­ni­val am­bas­sadors, along with six other celebri­ties.

CEO of the Aus­tralian Turf Club, Dar­ren Pearce, is thrilled about this year’s car­ni­val. Not only is there a to­tal of $33 mil­lion in prize­money, he also said, “This is the year we’re also cel­e­brat­ing an ex­cit­ing mile­stone. It’s the 25th an­niver­sary of Queen El­iz­a­beth II’S en­dorse­ment of Royal Rand­wick, when it of­fi­cially be­came a ‘royal’ race­course.”

The six weeks from 11th March to 15th April was filled with rac­ing high­lights, a va­ri­ety of fine food, fash­ion com­pe­ti­tions and many en­ter­tain­ment events to cel­e­brate the ex­cite­ment of this ex­hil­a­rat­ing rac­ing car­ni­val.
