Winners and Past Results for the Yallambee Classic.
The Yallambee Classic is one of the important Group 2 sprint races for three year olds hosted by the South Australian Jockey Club during the Adelaide autumn racing carnival.
Horses contest over 1200 metres of the Morphettville Racetrack under set weight conditions. The event is held on Labour Day holiday with a purse of $500,000 to be shared amongst the winners.
The Yallambee Stud Classic attracts the above average local three year old talent around at the time with a couple of interstate horses making their way to the field as well. Other feature races of the day include the Group 2 Adelaide Cup. Better performing sprinters are at a distinct advantage given the level weights allotted for the race.
Horses may use a number of listed races or even come in from a spell which makes it difficult to pick a winner.
Some horses may head for a spell after the Yallambee Stud Classic while some may use the Group 1 Sportingbet Classic held a fortnight later over the same distance at the same track in a bid to add a Group 1 title to their resume.
Apollo’s Flame won the first Yallambee Stud Classic as a listed race in 1981 while Sica Fortune won it as the first Group 3 event in 1986. It was promoted by the SAJC to Group 2 in 1991 and has remained so ever since. Among the notable gallopers to win include Vitalic in 1989, Euclase in 1991, Sword in 1998, Show No Emotion in 1998 and Honour The Name in 2000. Universal Queen triumphed in 2007 with a race record time of 1:08.2 seconds while Majestic Music pleased her connections in 2010.
