An annual favourite for racing fans and event goers.

Australia's most famous sprinting handicap, the highly anticipated $1.5 million Group 1 Yulong Stud Newmarket Handicap (1200m), was taken out by In Secret in an impressive finish.

This year marked 150 years of the Newmarket, which boasts an honour roll that that includes some of our greatest sprint champions and memorable underdogs.

Who could forget last year’s boilover as Mike Moroney’s NZ mare Roch ‘N’ Horse announced herself onto Australia’s sprinting stage with a stunning victory at 100-1!

Saturday 11 March, 2023


Feature races:

Group 1 Yulong Stud Newmarket Handicap (1200m)
Group 2 MSS Security Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m)
Group 2 TAB Kewney Stakes (1600m)
