COMMENT: Good win first up in the Tramway Stakes and looks the best he has been in my opinion. Looking for a big campaign although he has to match it with Winx here. Big Danger.

George Main Stakes Information

The George Main Stakes now called the Optic White Stakes is a Group l mile race during Sydney’s Spring Racing Carnival. It is held at Randwick racecourse each year over 1600m and is often used for a lead up to the Epsom Handicap and the major Cups and Plates in the Melbourne Spring.

The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $500,000 and is at Weight For Age conditions.

The 2017 George Main Stakes will be run on Saturday the 16th of September, 2017 at Randwick racecourse.

The George Main Stakes has been won by some absolute champions, including Desert War, Racing To Win and of course Kermadec in 2015, who was high class.

The winner of the George Main Stakes is ballot exempt from the $1million dollar Epsom Handicap often held three weeks later.
