It has been an incredible Melbourne Cup Carnival for jockey Corey Brown, who ended the final day with a win aboard the David Hayes-trained All American in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday.
Brown’s Carnival began with a win in last Saturday's Victoria Derby aboard Monaco Consul, before partnering Shocking to victory in Tuesday’s Emirates Melbourne Cup.
Later in the afternoon, Emirates Melbourne Cup winning trainer Mark Kavanagh claimed the Emirates Handicap with Sound Journey.
The relaxed atmosphere of Emirates Stakes Day, warmly regarded as ‘Family Day’ is not just about the races with the young ones also taking part in the celebrations thanks to Emirates Stakes Day Fashions on the Field.
Lucky participants Athena Efremidu and Nicholas Ward were crowned Miss and Master Emirates Stakes and have won a trip for two to Dubai flying Business Class with Emirates Airline.
Stephen Pearse, Vice President, Emirates Australia said: “Here, on the final day of 2009 Melbourne Cup Carnival, Flemington has proven that the excitement continues with Emirates Stakes Day. Seeing so many young faces enjoying the fun of the Carnival, including Emirates Stakes Day Fashions on the Field is wonderful.”
The family fun also continued in the Indian inspired Emirates marquee with vibrant colours, cosmopolitan culture and the rich heritage of India filling the famed social hotspot of the Birdcage at this year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Guests included Axle Whitehead, Cal Wilson, Charlie Goldsmith, Daniel MacPherson, Emma Freedman, Hayden Guppy, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle, Margot Robbie, Patricia Ilhan, Ryan Shelton, Scott McGregor & Chelsea Butler and Collingwood Football Players including Anthony Rocca, Travis Cloke and Tarkyn Lockyer and Emirates Stakes Day Fashions on the Field Judges Melissa Hetherington, Kim Fletcher, Charlie Brown and Rhys Uhlich.
