Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival

Sports in Sydney

Sydney’s biggest horse-racing carnival, held between Royal Randwick Racecourse and Rosehill Gardens in March and April. The two big races are the Golden Slipper, a sprint for two-year-olds at Rosehill, and the Sydney Cup at Randwick. Lawn parties attract princesses in big hats and drunken blokes in ill-fitted suits.
