On the eve of the Melbourne Cup Carnival’s Derby Day, luxurious champagne house Moet & Chandon hosted Spring Racing celebrations at Crown’s exclusive ultra lounge, Club 23.

A gold-themed affair, the venue was host to impressive gold magnum champagne towers and stunning gold antique framed mirrors that were used as serving trays encapsulated the extravagant event.

The guest list was as glamorous as the theme, with the likes of Jesinta Campbell, Pip Edwards, Philip Treacy and Kate Waterhouse in attendance.

Welcoming them all was the managing director of Moet Hennessy Australia who acknowledged the ‘bright future ahead’ for Moet and the relationship of Australia’s horse racing industry.

Emma Freedman also graced the podium and reminisced of her childhood filled with racing and memories of her father training 5 Cup winners. She thanked the champagne house for successfully hosting an event that brought together all aspects of the Spring Racing Carnival, including the rich history and tradition, the glamour and fashion, and of course the sporting heroes.

Guests were also treated to the lovely voice of Chloe Maggs from Rutherford Entertainment, who’s music captivated the audience. Dressed in appropriately in a gold ELLERY dress, Chloe ‘set the tone’ for the rest of the evening as guests danced and enjoyed the view of the city lights from the patio.

Richly drenched in gold and champagne, the event successfully emulated the unique and glamourous essence of the Spring Racing Carnival.
