This luxurious marquee is situated in a prime Trackside location past the Winning Post, in a slightly elevated location with dramatic head-on views down the finishing straight. It also features an ample viewing deck outside the marquee. The facility is adjacent to the Royal Enclosure Gardens and is a Royal Enclosure facility.
