The Race: Dating back to 1861, the Champagne Stakes is the feature race on third day of racing at Randwick during The Championships. A Group 1 race for 2yo, the distance was extended to a mile in 1972 creating a natural progression for runners who may have competed in the 1200m Golden Slipper in March. A horse who wins the Golden Slipper, Sires Produce and the Champagne Stakes takes the Juvenile Triple Crown.
Best Lead Up Race: Blue Diamond, Golden Slipper, Breeders Stakes, Sires Produce.
Track Bias, Barriers: The 1600m start is located in a chute off the back straight. Long run before the first turn so barriers are of little importance, rail position is key so if it is in the True there should be little bias evident or if the rail is out 5m it will favour runners who are leading into the home straight.
