We’re saddling up for another fun day of racing action on the first Tuesday of November and hope you’ll join us in the clubhouse for all the colour of the Melbourne Cup carnival.

Strathfield Sports Club will once again be hosting our traditional festivities with sweeps, finger food and sparkling wine on offer for members and guests.

And of course the race that stops the nation will take centre stage – this year on our brand new 86-inch television so you’ll feel as close to the action as ever.

As always our TAB facility will be on hand to take all your bets for the day’s racing. If you fancy a flutter make sure you gamble responsibly!

Can nine-year-old Red Cadeaux make history and go one better this year or will legendary trainer Bart Cummings claim a record 13th Melbourne Cup?

We’ve got our eye on the only Aussie-bred horse likely the feature – Fawkner – but as history tells us this is always one of the toughest races to pick.

So as we gallop towards Tuesday now is the time to make plans. Get your friends and fellow members together for what’s always a memorable and fun afternoon at SSC!
