Winners and Past Results for The Shorts.

The Shorts is a Group 2 race for horses three years old and over and is hosted by the Australian Turf Club during the Sydney spring racing carnival at Randwick Racecourse in late September.

The 1100 metre event is held on the same day as the Group 1 George Main Stakes, the Group 2 Hill Stakes and the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes.

The race attracts a field of above average sprinters who take to the track under set weight & penalty conditions for a shot at prize money worth $200,000. In form sprinters who have had a few exceptional runs prior to The Shorts are usually favoured in this race although horses coming in from a spell can spring a surprise.

One of the possible form guides is the Group 3 Concorde Stakes held at Randwick over 1100 metres a fortnight earlier. Some horses may come in from a winter spell, making it difficult to pick a winner.

Horses and their connections have plenty of options around this time, so you may find entrants come from a number of other races.

Statistics show that it takes an above average galloper to win The Shorts, whose list includes Rise ‘N' Shine in 1990 followed by Euclase a year later. Black Ink won in 2005 while Bentley Biscuit triumphed in 2006. Fritz's Princess got the better of Hot Danish in 2008 and almost made it in 2009, while Hot Danish came back strongly to win in 2010.

Gunilda is recorded as the first winner of The Shorts, which was held as a principal race in 1867. It became a listed race in 1979 before being awarded Group 3 status in 1994. Since 2008 it has been a Group 2 event.
