The George Main Stakes
The Race: First run in 1945 this is a key race of the early Spring Racing Carnival in Sydney and while the winners of the race are impressive many of the placegetters have gone on to success in bigger races, in particular the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in late October. In 2016 Winx won the George Main / Cox Plate double and lined up again in 2017 and 2018. Sponsorship has this race currently named as the Colgate Optic White Stakes.
Best lead-up form: Warwick Stakes, Theo Marks & Chelmsford Stakes.
The Track: Randwick is a large course with four sweeping turns. Generally fair, but tends to favour the on pace runners when the ground is rain affected.
Track Bias, Barriers: The race starts in a chute into the first of two corners which can be a slight disadvantage to those drawn out wide.
Weight, Statistics: Majority of winners have been male horses aged 4, 5, 6. In 2010 More Joyous became the first mare to win the George Main since Ma Chiquita in 1986. 3yo's have a reasonably successful record in the race to date, although the last to win was Viscount in 2001. Winx lined up for her 27th straight win in this race in 2018.
