The Myer Classic is a Group 1 weight-for-age race for fillies & mares held annually at Flemington during the Melbourne spring racing carnival in late October or early November. The race is run over a distance of 1600 metres and worth $500,000 in prizemoney. The 2016 Myer Classic was won by I Am A Star from French Emotion with Denmagic third.

The Myer Classic is held on Derby Day which is the first day of the four day Melbourne Cup Carnival and just three days before the Melbourne Cup. All races on Derby Day are group races with three more Group 1 events on the card, the Mackinnon Stakes, AAMI Victoria Derby and Coolmore Stud Stakes.

2017 Myer Classic info
Date: Saturday 4th November 2017
Track: Flemington racecourse, Melbourne
Distance: 1600 metres
Race Type: Fillies & Mares - Weight for age
Status: Group 1
Prizemoney: $500,000
2016 Winner: I Am A Star

The Myer Classic has had a number of name changes over the years and has been known as the 'The Honda Legend' and 'Hardy Brothers Classic' amongst a few others. In 2003 the race became Group 2 level and the race conditions were changed from 'set weights & penalties' to 'weight for age' and three-year-old fillies were allowed to run. The Myer Classic obtained Group 1 status in 2004 which gave Derby day four group one races for the day.

The best fillies & mares in Australia and New Zealand generally contest this event and it's a classic mile race for females that is the premier mares event of the spring in Melbourne.

Races like the Gr2 Rose Of Kingston Stakes and Gr2 Tristarc Stakes have previously been a good guide to this event and the better quality fillies or mares have a distinct advantage due to the level weight conditions of the race.

Mares from this race tend to race in similar mares events or quality open handicaps over a mile to middle distance and are capable of winning or being very competitive.

I Am A Star (2016) ran third in the Gr2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic over 1600m at Moonee Valley before proving too strong for the older mares to win this event and recent Myer Classic winners include Politeness (2015) and Bonaria (2014).

Spring Carnival Guide
The Myer Classic attracts the best 1600 metre fillies & mares from around the country and the race has been won by some more than handy females, although no winner in the past twenty years has gone on to win either the Caulfield Cup, WS Cox Plate or Melbourne Cup.

The better class gallopers tend to go on to the bigger mile races to come, such as the Gr1 Emirates Stakes at Flemington or the Gr1 Railway Stakes at Ascot in Perth.

Smart mare Fire Up Fifi (3rd in 2013) headed west to finish third in the Railway Stakes, while Divine Madonna (2007) won this race after winning the Gr1 Emirates stakes the previous spring, as did Bonanova (1998) who took out the 1997 Emirates Stakes.
