A day of celebration quickly soured as a mass brawl erupted among punters as they poured out of a Sydney racing event at Rose Hill garden.
The ticketed Australian Turf Club Christmas offered attendees the chance to watch the races while getting into the festive spirit – with Santa photos, Christmas treats and seasonal songs.
But the merry mood was soon lost as embattled revellers threw their fists – and flowers – into the faces of other spectators.
