Sydney-based horses have an advantage and have dominated the race throughout the years, but a few speedy interstate visitors have been successful.

Being run over 1100m, the race required a touch more stamina than a 1000m event, while out and out speedsters that struggle to get 1200m are also advantaged.

Our experts assess all The Galaxy runners, their speed, form, barrier draws, speedmap and more to help come up with our betting pointers and 2022 tips to help you back the winner.

The 2021 edition of The Galaxy sees some contenders that are in some very solid form, including the top weight Eduardo ($6), as well as the likes of Wild Ruler ($6) and Dirty Work ($15).

Favourite with NEDS is Haut Brion Her ($5), while Tallieur ($6) and the wet-tracker Jungle Edge ($9) are others in contention.

Wet conditions could play havoc with more than 100mm of rain forecast for Sydney in the 72 hour period from Thursday to Saturday.

An Open Handicap for horses three-years-old and upwards, The Galaxy is held during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival with runners carrying between 50kg-58kg.

The race was transferred to Rosehill Gardens in 2013 after being run at Royal Randwick in previous years.

It attracts some high-quality sprinters and is part of a fantastic day of racing that is headlined by the richest two-year-old race in the world, the $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).

A total of five Group 1 races are held on Golden Slipper Day with the Rosehill Guineas (2000m), George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and Ranvet Stakes (2000m) also run on the day.

Supporting the Group 1 races are the Group 3 Epona Stakes (1900m), Group 3 NE Manion Cup (2400m) and Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m).

In 2010, Ortensia won The Galaxy but was disqualified for a positive drug test and the race win was awarded to Shellscrape.

Runners that have performed well in The Galaxy have the option of tackling the $2.5 million TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick Racecourse two weeks later as part of Day 1 of The Championships.

The Galaxy was first run in 1972 when won by Playbill and has grown to become one of the most exciting sprint races of the carnival as it attracts the most accomplished sprinters from around Australia, with the exception of some of the real elite sprinters who compete in the $1.25 million Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington three weeks before the TJ Smith.

Some classy sprinters have won the race during its short but illustrious history, including Bletchingly (1975), Luskin Star (1978), Grey Receiver (1981-82), Snippets (1988), Mr Tiz (1991), Schillaci (1992), La Baraka (1998), Charge Forward (2005), Magnus (2007), Temple Of Boom (2012), Bel Sprinter (2013), Sweet Idea (2015) and In Her Time (2018).
