VRC Sprint Classic

Sprint Classic

Winners and Past Results for the Sprint Classic.

The Sprint Classic is a Victoria Racing Club Group One Australian horse race for horses aged three years old and over run under weight for age conditions.

It is contested over a distance of 1200 metres and is held annually at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne on the Saturday following the Melbourne Cup during the Spring Racing Carnival in November.

Prize Money for the VRC Sprint Classic is worth $1,000,000.

Sprint Classic was run as a Group One for the first time in 2007, taking over the Group One status of the Salinger Stakes, a 1200 metre handicap run the previous Saturday.

Originally run as a handicap on Derby Day, in 2007 the sprint was changed to weight-for-age and moved to Emirates Stakes Day and was won by Miss Andretti.

The VRC Sprint Classic winners includes Vain (1969), Century (1973), Special (1988), Hareeba (1994), Takeover Target (2004) and Miss Andretti (2007).

Only two horses have won it more than once with Planet Ruler in 1989 and 1990 and River Rough in 1983 and 1984. There have been no multiple winners since it became weight-for-age.
