Horses from Living Legends will play a bigger part on racedays at Flemington as the Victoria Racing Club strengthens its relationship with the retirement home for champion horses.

The VRC’s May Raceday on May 5, 2018 will be renamed Living Legends Raceday, as part of the new arrangement.

The day will celebrate not only the champions from Living Legends but retired racehorses in general ahead of National Hall of Fame Raceday on May 19.

Two Living Legends horses will parade at each Flemington raceday including all Group One meetings outside Melbourne Cup week, starting on National Jockey Celebration day on August 5.

Living Legends chief executive Dr Andrew Clarke said the horses at Woodlands Homestead in Greenvale enjoyed revisiting the site of some of their greatest victories.

“Might and Power, Brew, Efficient and Rogan Josh are Melbourne Cup winners, while Apache Cat, Zipping and Paris Lane are among our horses to record Group One wins at Flemington,” Clarke said..

“It’s wonderful they can come back to Flemington and connect with fans, young and old.”

VRC interim chief executive Neil Wilson said the club was proud to be a part of the promotion.

“Living Legends does outstanding work in caring for these horses during their well-deserved retirement, and we look forward to welcoming much loved Melbourne Cup winners and other former stars of the track back to Flemington,” he said.

Living Legends was established in 2006 to bring retired champion racehorses back to the public.

It also promotes and supports research into horse health and welfare and educates people about horse health and ownership.

Living Legends is a charitable organisation which relies on private and corporate donations to fund its work.
