Australian Group Races

All the premier thoroughbred horse races in Australia are categorised into Group status according to their priority, level of competition the race attracts and prize money.

There are over 500 Group Races run each year in this country. These are Group 1, Group 2, Group 3 and Group 4 (Listed Races).

Group Races are the highest class of race run in which only the finest thoroughbreds compete in.

The Australian Racing Board is in charge of approving such races in which they are then published in The Blue Book by the Jockey Club in the USA. This then gives Australian Races worldwide acknowledgment.

The best known Group races in Australia are the Melbourne Cup, WS Cox Plate, Victoria Derby, Crown Oaks and the Australian Cup. These are all Group 1 races.

Majority of the major races in Australia are run at either Randwick Racecourse in Sydney or Flemington in Melbourne.

Prize money for Group 1 races is $350,000 and over, Group 2 Races $175,000 and over, Group 3 Races $115,000 and over, and Listed Races $80,000 and over.
