melbourne cup day

There’s only one place to be in Melbourne over the next week – Flemington!

And, as always, 3AW will be trackside for all four days of the 2017 Spring Racing carnival.

It’s expected 100,000 will flock to the racecourse to enjoy the Melbourne Cup, although it’s going to be a cold start.

Tony Jones has had racing royalty in the studio, with Harry Herbert popping in to the 3AW booth for a chat.

And Neil Wilson, the VRC’s interim CEO, spoke to Tony about the redevelopment here at Flemington in the members area.
