Breeders Classic News

Co-trainer Paul Snowden has been thrilled with the condition of both Dublin Lass and I’ve Got The Looks in the lead-up to Saturday’s Group 2 Breeders’ Classic (1200m) at Royal Randwick, but is concerned the potential condition of the Randwick track will not suit the talented stable mates.

Breeders Classic

The Sydney Autumn Carnival is the highlight racing event in New South Wales, and takes over the State with its series of excellent race days held from February through until the end of April. On the second race day of the carnival, the exciting Group 2 Breeders Classic is held as part of the Challenge Stakes Day at the Rosehill Gardens racecourse.

The 2016 Breeders Classic is scheduled for the 6th of February 2016.

The Challenge Stakes Day is host to a number of great Group 2 and 3 races, and gives punters the first opportunity of the autumn season to bet on more than one quality race; as the first race day of the carnival consists of only the Expressway Stakes. Other events on the day include the Royal Sovereign Stakes, Light Fingers Stakes and the Frederick Clissold Stakes.

A race for mares four-years-old and up at set weights plus penalties, the Breeders Classic is a 1200 metre dash offering $175,000 in prize money. It is an excellent event for quality mares returning to racing after a spell, and for reliable sprinters. One of the younger races of the Sydney Carnival the Breeders Classic was first run in 1996 when Destruct won. The race record was set in 2004 by Private Steer when Glenn Boss rode to victory in a time of 1:08.31.

Leading Australian bookmakers offer odds on all of the quality group races in the Sydney Autumn Carnival, including the Breeders Classic. There is plenty of variety and value in the Breeders Classic odds, so make sure to check them out. The Breeders Classic is also a good way to gauge the form of the contending mares early in the season and spot the prospective winners and places for the future carnival events; including the Emancipation Stakes held on the final day of the carnival that is run under the same conditions. And, because of the older age of the runners, punters have a great advantage as they are able to look at the mares’ racing statistics over a longer career than the races for younger horses, when selecting their favourites.
