Emirate Stakes Day at Balnarring
Picnic Bookies Always a Better Bet !



Emirates Stakes Day at Balnarring closes out the Cup week nicely, a favourite for pinic racegoers where you can drive into the treed racecourse and setup a picnic beside your car and stroll to all facilities. The Balnarring Picnic Race Club has a long and proud history dating back to 1863. It was in that year that the Hastings and Balnarring Racing Club, as it was then known, commenced racing. The site used for the first meeting remains the site used today.

The Balnarring Race Course is located on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula between Port Philip and Western Port Bays. Only 1 hour from Melbourne, the unique location offers the racegoer the opportunity to explore many nearby wineries, restaurants and popular beaches. A day at the Balnarring races is an ideal social event for corporate or social groups. In a relaxed environment, the Balnarring Picnic Racing Club can provide for:

  • the entertaining of clients;
  • company social clubs;
  • staff Christmas parties; and
  • group social days.

Corporate race goers typically take the opportunity to enjoy the races from the comfort of a marquee. Marquees are set up on the rails between the mounting yard and horse stalls.
