Spring racing is officially here and Morphettville Racecourse is the place to be this season. Offering punters a huge selection of race days and activities, there is also a brand new trackside look with an exclusive partnership between Morphettville Racecourse and White Marquee Event Hire.
White Marquee, the masterminds behind iconic South Australian event setups including the Adelaide Fashion Festival Hub and Polo in the City, have joined forces with Morphettville Racecourse to create an exciting trackside village to rival those interstate. “We have been working closely with Morphettville Racecourse to create a bespoke and unique trackside area for the 2018 AAMI Spring Carnival of Racing,” says White Marquee General Manager, Greg Evangelou. “Our aim is to bring a touch of Flemington to Adelaide; we want to give race-goers all the the thrills of Flemington at South Australia’s most prestigious racing venue. At the heart of Morphettville’s new-look trackside village is our stunning AAMI Marquee on the Champagne Lawns.
