Darley Classic Final Field and Barrier Draw - Stellar line up of 14 sprinters to clash

  • Group 1 sprinters set to clash
  • Two former winners in line-up
Malaguerra wins the Darley Classic

Defending champion Malaguerra features among a stellar 14-strong line-up of sprinters for the $1 million Group 1 Darley Classic at Flemington on November 11.

Malaguerra won the race last year and is one two former winners set to run on the final day of the Flemington Carnival, with the 2014 victor Terravista also in the final field.

Among the Group 1-winning sprinters set to clash is Chautauqua, the nation's highest rated sprinter who has twice finished runner-up in the Darley Classic behind Terravista three years ago and again to Delectation in 2015.

In what is a mini repeat of The Everest, winner Redzel, Vega Magic, Chautauqua, Redkirk Warrior and Clearly Innocent will all go head-to-head again over the straight six.

Also in the line-up are Godolphin's Impending, Rock Magic, Spieth, Man From Uncle, In Her Time, Missrock and Super Cash.

In Her Time has landed the inside draw in barrier one, while Redkirk Warrior (three), Vega Magic (four), Spieth (six) and Terravista (seven) will be in the same half of the draw.

Malaguerra drew widest of all in 14 and will have Chautauqua (13) alongside. Redzel is also is also likely to keep the pair company jumping from gate 10.
