Faces behind the Melbourne Cup Carnival

Atlantic Group Catering

Atlantic Group have been the official caterers for the Home Straight Enclosure over the past 3 years. Their staff work tirelessly leading up to the event, ensuring the menu is innovative and delicious, as well as on the day to deliver your food and drinks with a smile.

Glenn Preusker

The real life Kenny, Glenn Preusker of Splashdown organizes all of the 2500 toilets at Flemington. It’s a long day at the races for Glenn, dealing with everything from drunken race goers to lost items – His team find the usual undergarments and even the odd set of false teeth!

Terry Freeman

Terry is the ‘keeper of roses’ and head gardener at Flemington. ‘Keeper of Roses’ may sound like a pleasant walk in the park, think again! This means tending to over 16,000 rose bushes … An endless supply of pretty backdrops to pose in front of at the races.

Mercury Principle Events

The team who has been working towards the Carnival, since last year’s Carnival! Organizing everything from seating layouts to laying down the flooring of the enclosure, Mercury Principle Events are working day in day out to ensure your race day experience is one you will never forget.
