The Shorts Information

The Shorts is a Group 2 race held at Randwick Racecourse in New South Wales each year one of the early Spring feature races held each year on George Main Stakes Day.

The Shorts (1100m) boasts a total prize pool of $500,000 and is for horses aged Three-Years-Old and Upwards and is run under set weight plus penalty conditions.

The Shorts 2021 will be run on September 18, 2021 at Randwick Racecourse.

The Group 3 Concorde Stakes earlier in the month at the same track has proven to be an ideal lead-up for this race.

Horses that run in The Shorts will often go on to compete in Group One races and other feature races, such as The Everest, throughout the Spring Carnival.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic many states are adopting changes to their feature race programs. This may mean that the information listed on this page may not be correct. We endeavour to update pages with the correct information ASAP but in the meantime users should seek important information from official sources.
