The Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) takes place at Royal Randwick Racecourse annually in April.

The All Aged Stakes attracts the country’s best sprinters and milers, and in recent times, stayers that are targeting spring feature races have used the race as part of their abbreviated autumn campaign.

The Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) held at the same track two weeks earlier used to be a reliable guide to the All Aged but in recent times Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) runners have gone on to win the race, including recently with Hay List in 2011, English in 2016 and Tivaci in 2017

Some of Australia’s greatest horses have won the 1400m feature and include: Carbine (1889-90), Wakeful (1902), Amounis (1930), Peter Pan (1935), Ajax (1938-40), Bernborough (1946), Tulloch (1958), Tobin Bronze (1967), Emancipation (1984), Rough Habit (1992-93), Sunline (2000 & 2002), Hot Danish (2010), All Too Hard (2013), Dissident (2015), English (2016) and Trapeze Artist (2018). Japanese galloper Hana’s Goal won the race in 2014.

The open weight-for-age race takes place on the last day of the Sydney Autumn Carnival and is one of two Group 1 features on the day. The Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) joins the All Aged Stakes on the programme at Randwick.

Randwick is the largest racetrack in New South Wales and all races are run in a clockwise direction. It is a sweeping track with a rise from the 300m mark to the winning post in the home straight.

As well as the main track, Randwick Racecourse contains a second track known as Kensington. Due to large rainfall in the area, Kensington has been reconstructed using the Strathayr racing surface which is similar to Moonee Valley.

Strathayr is a turf cover over a base of sand, this means it is a free draining track which can take a substantial amount of rain without affecting the rating.


Originally known as the ‘Sandy Course,’ Randwick Racecourse was first used in 1833 where a private match race between two horses was held.

In 1840 the track was abandoned as a racecourse and used for training purposes before the Australian Jockey Club (AJC) moved its headquarters to Randwick and held a meeting in 1860.

The Queen Elizabeth II stand was opened to the public on August 4, 1969, and in 1992, Queen Elizabeth II visited Randwick and opened the new $30 million Paddock Grandstand.

The Australian Derby (2400m) remains one of the longest standing races to be held at Randwick after its inaugural running took place in 1861.

Randwick hosts some of Australia’s most iconic Group 1 races throughout the year, during both the spring and autumn carnivals in Sydney.

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Doncaster Mile and TJ Smith Stakes are some of the elite races taking place at Randwick during the prestigious The Championships during the autumn.
