2020 Canberra Racing Carnival

Community Event

8 Mar 2020 to 9 Mar 2020

The inaugural Canberra Racing Carnival will take place on the Sunday and Monday of the Canberra Day long weekend after the splitting of the Black Opal Stakes and the Canberra Cup.

Black Opal Stakes Day has a long-established place in the Canberra community calendar and again takes place on the Sunday of the long weekend. The second race day, on the Monday of the long weekend, will be headlined by the historical Canberra Cup.

These two days will have distinct and unique identities with the Black Opal Stakes Race Day remaining as a celebration of fashion and everything fine while Canberra Cup Race Day will have a focus on families and everything Canberran.

Thoroughbred Park – the thrill of it all.
