Doncaster Handicap

Considered to be one of the most highly-regarded horse races to be held at Sydney’s illustrious Royal Randwick Racecourse is the 2016 Doncaster Handicap, which like the Melbourne Cup betting markets, sees plenty of attention at the Aussie bookies.

A Group 1 thoroughbred race, it is held annually in April, forming part of the peak season for horse racing in Sydney. Commonly known as the Doncaster Mile, the Doncaster Handicap remains one of the highly attractive features amongst horse racing punters, gamblers and enthusiasts from across Australia and even the world.

The Doncaster Handicap was traditionally held on Easter Monday, however in recent years has changed to be raced on the third Saturday in April. In 2016, the Doncaster Handicap is racing on the 2nd of April.
