Morphettville racing

The 2015 Adelaide Racing Carnival takes place at Morphettville Racecourse and is held from late February to the middle of March.

South Australia’s best race horses are set for the lucrative carnival and get the chance to take on some quality interstate rivals that have crossed the border in search of big prizemoney and black type status.

Although the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) is the most attended race during the carnival, due mainly to fact it is celebrated on a public holiday,  the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m), Australasian Oaks (2000m), SA Derby (2500m) and The Goodwood (1200m) are the only South Australian races to hold Group 1 status.

The carnival kicks off on Saturday, February 28, with the first key race being the Group 3 Lord Reims Stakes (2600m).

Before the first Group 1 is staged, there are four more days of Group racing with the Group 3 SA Breeders Stakes (1200m) held on Saturday March 28, followed by the Group 3 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) on April 11, the Auraria Stakes (1800m) and RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) on April 18, and then the Group 3 Chairmans Stakes (2000m) on April 25.

Group 1 racing kicks off in on Saturday, May 2, with the running of the Australasian Oaks (2000m) for three-year-old fillies and the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) for fillies & mares.

Australia’s most famous mare, Black Caviar, claimed victory in the 2012 Robert Sangster Stakes while drawing in a capacity crowd of more than 30,000.

Other races on the day include the Group 2 Queen of the South Stakes (1600m) and the Group 3 DC McKay Stakes (1100m).

Group 1 racing continues the following week on Saturday, May 9, with the South Australian Derby (2500m) attracting the best three-year-olds, while the Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) adds to a fantastic day of racing.

The final Group 1 race of the Adelaide Racing Carnival is the Goodwood (1200m) for sprinters and unlike some of the carnival’s other races, the race attracts a quality field with recent winners including Platelet (2013), Black Caviar (2012) and Takeover Target (2009).
