This Saturday, Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse will see its richest race take place as a feature of the illustrious Super Saturday – the $1.5 million Group 1 Doncaster Handicap (1600m), also known as the Doncaster Mile.

With eight races taking place on Saturday, the penultimate event will be the Doncaster Handicap, which is due to jump at 3.20pm with 21 competing for a share in the prize money.

Dominating the odds coming into the 2010 Doncaster Handicap is the powerhouse mare Typhoon Tracy at $3.

Dominating the odds coming into the 2010 Doncaster Handicap is the powerhouse mare Typhoon Tracy at $3.

The four-year-old is coming into the prolific race with four consecutive Group 1 wins and will be looking to claim her fifth on Saturday – and seems a safe bet despite her wide barrier draw.

Danleigh and Rangirangdoo, both trained by Chris Waller are closest in the odds with an equal mark of $6 – the only other starters to be in the single digits.

Starting from barrier 3, Palacio De Cristal could be an underdog for Saturday’s 2010 Doncaster Handicap with odds of $11. The four-year-old mare recently finished fourth in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), where Danleigh came first.

Brilliant Light and Theseo, winner of the Emirates Doncaster Prelude (1600m) and the Ranvet Stakes (2000m) respectively, are both coming into the race with odds of $17 – which would provide a lucrative payout to the willing punter.

Miss Marielle, starting from barrier nine is rounding out the odds at $101 – and although winning on Saturday would be an incredible upset, the mare would give the risky wagerer looking to place a spare dollar down a nice sum in payouts.

Also taking place on Saturday alongside the 2010 Doncaster Handicap will be the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m), the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) and the Group 3 South Pacific Classic (1400m).
