Weekend Black Type Feature Schedule

Friday, 13th October 2017

Headlined by the inaugural running of the world's richest turf race – the $10 million The Everest (1200m) - in Sydney, as well as the time-honoured Gr1 Caulfield Guineas, Gr1 Thousand Guineas, Gr1 Caulfield Stakes, and Gr1 Toorak Handicap in Melbourne, there are 19 feature races across Australia and New Zealand this weekend. First run in 1881, the stallion-making Caulfield Guineas boasts a rich history having been won by some of the greatest names of the Australian turf, including Ajax (1937), Tulloch (1957), Vain (1969), Surround (1976), Luskin Star (1977), Manikato (1978), Redoute's Choice (1999), Lonhro (2001), Starspangledbanner (2009), and All Too Hard (2012). This year, Tony McEvoy's boom colt Royal Symphony continues to firm for the race and is currently available in fixed odds markets at the $3.90 favourite with TAB. The second market elect is Gr1 Blue Diamond winner Catchy, the only filly entered in the race, at $4.60, ahead of Godolphin colt Kementari at $5. All other runners are at double figure odds, headed by Caulfield Guineas Prelude winner Perast at $10.
