The Melbourne Cup Carnival might be over, but there is still loads of Spring Racing action to play out before this year's carnival comes to a close.

This weekend, the Ladbrokes Spring Carnival Raceday packs a punch with no less than six group races at Ladbrokes Park. With general admission tickets just $20 for adults and plenty of free activities for the kids including a variety of rides, jumping castles, face painting, craft and pony rides - it's a great way to see city racing at a country pricetag.

With warmer weather comes longer nights, and with longer nights comes night racing spreading across The Valley, Pakenham and Cranbourne on Thursday and Friday nights. With drink specials, beer gardens and live entertainment, night racing is popular after-work option to lead into the weekend.

If the country is more your scene, take advantage of Country Racing Victoria's 'two fer' offer which gives you two general admission tickets for the price of one at 50 feature country races during Spring. We recommend making the pilgrimage to the William Tomson Dunkeld Cup, rated among the top 10 racing destinations worldwide for its picturesque views and country hospitality. 

The lineup of country cups – , all offering a range of marquees, track-side entertainment and free kids activities doesn't end there. The action heats up on cup days including Donald, Wodonga, Ballarat and Kilmore whilst Picnic Racing at Yea and Woolamai are great options to round out the Spring Racing Carnival.
