Two More Million Dollar Races for Sydney Spring
Breednet - Wednesday December 5

With the Golden Eagle headlining changes to the Sydney spring carnival there are also two more million dollar races added for the two year-olds and three year-olds.

Tassort - winner of the 2018 Golden Gift.The new $1 million Bondi Stakes will be run at Royal Randwick for three-year-olds over a distance of 1600m on 26 October 2019.

The race provides a new spring target for three-year- olds in Sydney and follows on from races such as the Golden Rose and the Flight Stakes.

The Golden Gift, an 1100m race for two-year-olds which was first run by the ATC in 2015, will now be run for $1 million prizemoney on Saturday, 9 November 2019.

This race provides a focal point for two-year old racing in the spring, with the prizemoney on offer enough to ensure that the first and second placegetters will gain a berth in the Golden Slipper.

Interestingly the 2018 renewal of the race, run on November 24 saw just four horses line up but in a field rated highly and produced a new Golden Slipper favourite in Tassort.
