The Newmarket Handicap is the premier handicap sprint event held at Flemington and is run down the 1200m straight. The race has been won by many of our finest sprinters over the years, such as Black Caviar (2011), Miss Andretti (2007), Takeover Target (2006), Alinghi (2005), General Nediym (1998), Schillaci (1992) and Special (1998).
The Flemington ‘Straight Six’ 1200m course is a straight track with no turns and horses with proven records at the course and distance are ones to look as strong chances. The Lighting Stakes and Oakleigh Plate are the lead up races as form guide for this race. Lankan Rupee (2014) won the Oakleigh Plate over 1100m at Caulfield before taking out this event.
The winning connections of the Newmarket Handicap would look to head for the riches of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival 2018 and either The Galaxy or the TJ Smith Stakes also over 1200m.
