Our guests were welcomed with flowing glasses of delicious Pol Roger, stunning grazing tables and mood setting tunes from DJ Tim Bos who also impressed on the saxophone.
Whilst surrounded by the luxurious Lexus range, our guests took the exclusive opportunity to have their photo taken whilst holding the Lexus Melbourne Cup, worth $200,000.
The formalities of the evening included welcoming Joe McGrath from the Victorian Racing Club and Sheila Laxon, who was the first female thoroughbred horse trainer to win the Australian Cups double – the Caufield Cup and Melbourne Cup. Their discussion was extremely interesting, and it was fantastic to discover more about Sheila’s amazing career and achievements in the racing industry.
Thank you to every one who joined us on the night and we hope you enjoyed this fantastic experience in the lead up to this year’s ‘Race that stops a nation’ – the 2019 Lexus Melbourne Cup.
