The Autumn Racing Carnival is a bumper schedule of 46 Group 1 or $1 million races across Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane.

Yes, that’s a slightly expanded definition of ‘Autumn Racing Carnival’, stretching right into the Brisbane Winter Carnival. But the fact remains, there’s Group 1 racing almost every weekend until the end of June… bring it on!

All of the Champion Bets racing analysts will of course be heavily engaged over the Autumn Racing Carnival. Trevor Lawson, Cameron O’Brien, The Professor and Gareth Phillips cover racing in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and/or Perth… and they’re raring to go for the Spring Racing Carnival.
