Upcoming Canberra Race Day

Our Fashion on the Fields… 

We partnered with stylist Sofia Polak to provide the looks for the Black Opal Race Day promotional shoot.


The Group 3 John McGrath Auto Group Black Opal Stakes is coming up on Sunday the 10th  of March 2019.


A great excuse to dress up and get out while the weather is still warm for Canberra’s premier race day.


It is an event you won’t want to miss, get tickets here.


Beginning in 1973, the First Black Opal Stakes was won by Rich Reward.


The Black Opal Stakes program includes; the $300,000 John McGrath Auto Group Black Opal Stakes (Group 3), the $200,000 tab.com.au Canberra Cup (Listed), $130,000 (Canberra) National Sprint (Listed) and the XXXX Gold $130,000 Canberra Guineas (Listed). The full racing program is available under the racing drop down menu on the website.


The action takes place both on and off the track at Thoroughbred Park on John McGrath Auto Group Black Opal Stakes day.
