The luxurious marquee is situated at the Winning Post. It is Inside Track, directly opposite the Grandstand. It includes an elevated private deck which provides great views of the racing. There is a private track across the racecourse for guests to make their way into the Royal Enclosure Gardens.


The Veranda is a marquee facility and is decorated to a high standard.
