• 2019 spring racing schedule for all race types
  • 39 feature races across Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia

The spring racing schedule has seen a hell of a lot of changes in recent years.

The traditional Victorian Spring Carnival has company… Racing NSW has introduced a stack of new races over the past few years, making the overall calendar very crowded. And of course, there’s the Group 1 races in Perth at the end of it all which are worth tacking on… (even if they are technically in summer!)

We’ve tried to make it a little more consumable by breaking it down by the different categories of races on the calendar, which should help to give you an idea of the possible paths that horse may take.

So here they are: every Group 1 race – plus any other $1 million race – from now until the end of 2019. There’s 39 races in total across four months, worth more than $70 million in prizemoney.

Bring it on…
