This Group 1 event takes place at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse annually in April during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival as part of Day 1 of The Championships.
In 2016 the race was taken out by the Chris Waller-trained four-year-old champion mare Winx with jockey Hugh Bowman aboard.
The race tends to attract a capacity field of 20 runners and the final field and barrier draw is determined by ballot in relation to the horse’s handicap.
It was first run in 1866 when won by Dundee and has grown in stature to become one of Australia’s most prestigious races.
Due to the large sum of prizemoney on offer, the Doncaster Mile attracts the best mile/middle-distance staying horses from Australia and New Zealand and is part of a fantastic day of racing that includes the $2.5 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m), $2 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) and $1 million Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m).
The Doncaster Mile is run under handicap conditions over 1600m and is open to males and females aged three-years-old and upwards.
Punters looking for the most reliable lead-up race to the Doncaster Mile should turn to the form out of the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) run two weeks prior on Golden Slipper Day at Rosehill Gardens.
The honour roll is exceptional with many of the Doncaster Mile winners being regarded as Australia’s greatest racehorses.
Famous Doncaster Mile winners include Briseis (1876), Wakeful (1901), Chatham (1934), Tobin Bronze (1967), Gunsynd (1972), Emancipation (1983), Super Impose (1990-91), Sunline (1999 & 2002), Haradasun (2007), More Joyous (2012), Sacred Falls (2013-14) and Happy Clapper (2018).
Many of the horses that have won the Doncaster Mile have gone on to win some of the country’s most prestigious races in the following years with the Cox Plate being the most likely target.
