|2018 Winner:||Prompt Response|
The Breeders Classic is a nice group race for mares and the set weight & penalty conditions favour the better peformed gallopers. The 1200m distance suits solid sprinting mares or classy females who may be returning from a spell.
More than handy types generally assemble for the Breeders Classic and that can provide a challenge for punters trying to find the winner. Quite often a top class mare will come along to contest the race, as evidenced by the wins of More Joyous (2011), Hot Danish (2009), Spinning Hill (2001) and Staging (2000) in previous years.
The 2013 Breeders Classic proved a pivotal race of that autumn with Catkins (2014) and Steps In Time (2013) going on to win the Gr3 Guy Walter Stakes at Randwick at their next starts, while Red Tracer (2nd in 2013) won the Gr2 Millie Fox Stakes at Rosehill before finishing runner-up behind Appearance in the Gr1 Coolmore Classic & Queen Of The Turf Stakes, also at Rosehill. Choice Words (3rd in 2013) won the Gr3 Wenona Girl Handicap at her next start.
Prompt Response (2018) resumed from a spell to win this event in classy style and recent Breeders Classic winners include In Her Time (2017) and Amicus (2016)..
