Weekend Black-Type Schedule

Friday, 17th January 2020

Out of 10 Group and Listed races over the weekend, 4 of them will be run at Gr1 level. New Zealand’s Trentham Racecourse in Wellington hosts a Gr1 double on Saturday when renewals of the Telegraph (1200m) and Thorndon Mile (1600m) are run. A day later, Sha Tin in Hong Komng hosts the Gr1 Stewards’ Cup and Gr1 Centenary Sprint Handicap. The former is full of intrigue, with the level weight field of seven headed by champion Beauty Generation, beaten at his last 3 starts after winning 9 races in a row. Whilst every effort is made to ensure information and the below race times (in Australian Eastern Summer Time order) are accurate, please consult official race cards if certainty is required.
