Autumn Racing Carnival heats up
Victoria’s richest race for two-year-olds, the $1.5 million Blue Diamond Stakes, highlights a huge day of thoroughbred racing on the Seven Network this Saturday, including three Group 1 races at Caulfield and the coveted Silver Slipper Stakes at Rosehill Gardens.
Australia’s pre-eminent sports broadcaster Bruce McAvaney will again lead racing’s undisputed #1 commentary team, which also features Hamish McLachlan, Katelyn Mallyon, Henry Dwyer, Jason Richardson and Sky Racing’s Lizzie Jelfs.
Over the next nine Saturdays, racing 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:
- The $5 million All-Star Mile – the world’s richest 1600m race – at Moonee Valley on 13 March
- The $3.5 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 20 March
- The Championships, which features eight Group 1 races across two action-packed Saturdays at Randwick on 3 and 10 April
