The 2017 Spring Carnival kicked off on the weekend with a big day of racing from Caulfield and Randwick. There were plenty of great tournaments on offer throughout Australia to celebrate the opening weekend and we recap the best of them below.


The folks at TopBetta offered some big prize pools for Day 1 of the Spring Carnival, headlined by their $10k ‘Memsie Stakes Day One Gorilla Thrilla’. The tournament attracted 8 contestants with the big $1k entry fee and after a big day of betting it was veteran ‘bitemenow who took out the $6,000 top prize.

The day was made with a $44,000 win on Jamaican Rain to win Race 8 at Morphetville, whick set up a late defence of the number one spot over minor placings nashemmy and lewster.
