The Darley Classic is a Group l sprint race and is the feature sprint event of the Melbourne Spring Carnival. It is held at Flemington racecourse each year over 1200m and is a highlight of the fourth day of Cup Week.
The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $1 Million and is at WFA.
The 2018 Darley Classic will be run on Saturday the 10th of November, 2018 at Flemington racecourse.
The Darley Classic is well placed for the sprinters given it follows up from the Manikato (1200m) and the Yellowglen (1200m) on Derby Day.
Since the turn of the century, only four horses aged four years and under have won the race. So that is an indication that the older, seasoned sprinter will be well placed.
