Group 1 stars set to shine on Seven and 7plus

Some of Australian racing’s most coveted prizes go on the line over the coming weeks as the Autumn Racing Carnival heats up on the Seven Network, including the $5 million All-Star Mile at Flemington and the 66th running of the $5 million Golden Slipper Stakes at Rosehill Gardens.

The Autumn Racing Carnival kicks up a gear tomorrow with a huge day of thoroughbred racing from Randwick Guineas Day and Australian Guineas Day at Flemington, including three Group 1 races live and free from 12pm AEDT on Seven and 7plus.

Over the next 11 Saturdays, fans will enjoy the very best racing from the Sydney and Melbourne Autumn Carnivals live and free on Seven and 7plus, with the highlights including:  

  • Flemington Super Saturday on 12 March, featuring the coveted Group 1 $1.5 million Australian Cup (2000m) and Newmarket Handicap (1200m) 
  • The 66th running of the $5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m), the world’s richest race for two-year-olds and one of five Group 1 races at Rosehill Gardens on 19 March
  • The $5 million All-Star Mile, the world’s richest 1600m race, at Flemington on 19 March
  • The Championships, which features eight Group 1 races across two action-packed Saturdays at Randwick on 2 and 9 April

Seven’s own pre-eminent sports broadcaster, Bruce McAvaney said this year’s Autumn Carnival could provide us with more history-making highlights:

Autumn racing has provided so many incredible highlights in recent years – who can forget Winx’s spectacular 2019 retirement? This year all eyes will be on Verry Elleegant. If everything goes right for her, expectations are she’ll run in Europe at the prestigious Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

The Championships have provided the spice to the autumn that we’ve historically experienced in spring racing here in Australia. The $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes will decide our horse of the year, and there are a number of key contenders seeking the crown.

For the first time on the same day, we have the world’s richest two-year-old race, and the Golden Slipper and All-Star Mile are both now worth $5 million. It’s going to be spine tingling.
