Refreshing Mix of Melbourne Metrop Meetings
Ahead of Saturday's AFL Grand Final at the MCG, a rare mid-week racemeeting at Flemington forms part of a different mix of metropolitan racing in Melbourne this week. In addition to the Flemington race day, the change-up due to no metropolitan meeting in the Victorian capital on Saturday sees The Valley hosting the Gr1 Moir Stakes meeting under lights on Friday, followed on Sunday by a bumper Caulfield card where the Gr1 Undwood stakes-meeting also features 1400m preludes of both the Caulfield Guineas and Thousand Guineas. Three races stand out at Flemington: 1800m Trials for the Kennedy Oaks and Victoria Derby, plus the Darley Spring Preview, a 900m 2YO dash that includes two runners from the powerful Lindsay Park stable.
