The Metropolitan Handicap Information

The Metropolitan Handicap is a Group l staying race and is the lone Group l for Sydney stayers during the Spring. It is held at Randwick racecourse each year over 2400m.

The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $750,000 and is an open handicap.

The 2019 Metropolitan will be run on Saturday the 5th of October, 2019 at Randwick racecourse.

The Metropolitan is an ideal launching pad towards the Caulfield Cup as we saw in 2005 and 2006 with Railings and Tawqeet winning the Metropolitan-Caulfield Cup double.

The race is a grave yard for favourites, with only two winning in the last decade.

Patrick Erin, The Metropolitan
