    By Ricki | September 5, 2015

    The first day of Spring saw the launch of The Playground of Racing Royalty campaign via Grey Melbourne, at Melbourne's Southern Cross station as Flemington came to the city in a flurry of racing, fashion and glamour. 

    The campaign has been building on social media for the last six months with more than 100 pieces of content introducing the stories, the history, the people and of course the sporting excellence and grandeur that makes Flemington unique.

    VRC acting EGM brand, marketing and international development, Lisa Patroni said the campaign captures the power of the rich narratives that already exist in the sport of kings.

    This stunning portrait of Flemington's greatest assets--human, equine and physical--forms the campaign's hero image, supported by digital activations, experiential, an emotive television campaign and broadcast sponsorships showcasing the beauty and exhilaration of thoroughbred racing. It is about the journey towards the Carnival, the joy of being a racegoer, VRC member, horse owner or Fashions on the Field contestant alike. This campaign puts Flemington and its thousands of subjects in the spotlight.

    Says Claudia McInerney, general manager, Grey Melbourne: "The Melbourne Cup VRC - best ads SOFITEL (1).jpgCarnival is the pinnacle of racing.
