The four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival attracted about 275,000 people in 2019. The Victoria Racing Club had hoped that 10,000 people would be able to attend each day of the flagship event in 2020, with appropriate coronavirus measures in place. However, VRC chair Amanda Elliott has advised that Flemington racecourse will be closed to the general public for the entire event. The VRC remains hopeful that some racehorse owners can attend in person. The state government barred owners from attending the Cox Plate on 24 October.
