Moonee Valley, Caulfield, or other track

Jump to last reply

If you had to choose between MV on Dec 23 or Caulfield on Dec 26, which would you choose? I see that MV is at night but don't know if Caulfield is day or night.

I am considering a trip to Melbourne and/or Sydney Dec 20 to 30 or Dec 25 to Jan 4. Are there other race meets during those times that I should consider?

In general, I prefer daytime racing but am really interested in seeing quality horses and top jockeys at an attractive racetrack. That would be Santa Anita on Boxing Day if I stay home.

I noticed a transportation option at one of the tracks that had night racing. It is a service where they drive you home in your car. I suppose that has something to do with laws about BAC. If the night racing is party time then I am not interested. I'd rather be around degenerate gamblers than alcoholics.
