The Shorts is a Group 2 set weights race for 3yo and upward horses held annually at Randwick racecourse in September during the Sydney spring racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1100 metres and worth $200,000 in prizemoney. The 2013 The Shorts was won by Sessions from Aeronautical with Spirit Of Boom third.

Taking place on the same day as the Gr1 George Main Stakes, after previously being held on the final day of the spring carnival, The Shorts is one of a number of feature races on a great day of racing at Randwick.

The Shorts info
Date: Saturday 20th September 2014
Track: Randwick racecourse, Sydney
Distance: 1100 metres
Race Type: 3yo&up - Set Weights + Penalty
Status: Group 2
Prizemoney: $200,000
2013 Winner: Sessions

The Shorts is a good sprint event over Group 2 metres that typically attracts more than handy sprinters most of the time and tends to be won by an above average galloper rather than an exceptional one.

Fit, in-form gallopers who have been racing well in similar type sprint events around 1100m or 1200m are suited here, and a race like the Gr3 Concorde Stakes earlier in the month at the same tracks provides the ideal lead-up race.

Sessions (2013) finished runner-up in the Concorde Stakes over 1000m at Randwick before winning this event and recent The Shorts winners include Pampelonne (2012) and Love Conquers All (2011).
