Day One of The Festival™ returned on Tuesday 16 March 2021 behind closed doors.


We kickstarted four days of world-class racing, with no fewer than four Grade One contests on the card. Day One of The Festival™ supporting WellChild was just as thrilling as we hoped it would be. From brilliant Blackmore to a Festival first, all four Grade One races produced stylish winners and stunning performances.
