Over 100 guests attended the Herald Sun Derby Day marquee at Flemington on Saturday. The marquee theme was the Herald Sun Sports Bar. There was a DJ playing classic rock hits, a Herald Sun photo booth activation at the front of the marquee, curated photo gallery of classic and current racing photos and the best Herald Sun racing covers. Catering was handled by Peter Rowland Catering.
