Toorak Handicap

Distance 1600m
Grade Group 1
Track  Caulfield
Prizemoney $500,000
Class Handicap
2017 winner

Tosen Stardom ($11)

During the Caulfield Cup Carnival, the Toorak Handicap is the premier mile race, and takes place on the first day of the carnival, Caulfield Guineas day. This is one of the best all-round days of racing in Australia, as it sees four Group Ones contested. 

Winning on Guineas day is always special, and why plenty of quality milers all line up to contest the Toorak. As the race is run under handicap conditions, it is not uncommon for the result to be decided in a photo finish. 

The Toorak is a race with a long history, first being run back in 1881. In this history, it has almost always been run over the distance of a mile, save once in 1891 when the race was increased to a mile and a furlong or approximately 1,800 metres. 

The 1,600 metre start at Caulfield only allows for a very short straight run before the horses hit the first turn. Therefore, jockeys with a wide draw have limited time to find cover, and why horses with an inside barrier have a pronounced advantage in this race.

Galilee, Tobin Bronze and Leilani have all triumphed in the Toorak, demonstrating the quality of the race. What's more is that all three of these horses went on to win the Caulfield Cup in the same year. 

In the past, many horses used the Toorak as a lead-up for the Caulfield Cup a week later. It is still currently a race for horses making a last-ditch effort to get into the Caulfield Cup field, as the winner of the Toorak gains exemption from the Caulfield Cup ballot.

2017 Toorak Handicap

In 2017, the Darren Weir-trained Japanese import Tosen Stardom won after a strong run down the centre of the straight, after coming wide on the turn. Tosen Stardom was also carrying the top weight, making his win all the more impressive.
