The Breeders Classic is a Group 2 race that takes place in February each year at Randwick racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales during the Sydney autumn racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres under set weights & penalty conditions and worth $500,000 in prize money. The 2019 Breeders Classic was won by Champagne Cuddles from Cool Passion with Alassio third.
This mares only event is held on the same day as the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes and is the first group race of the year for mares in the Sydney metropolitan area.
The 2019 Breeders Classic will take place at Warwick Farm racecourse instead of Randwick.

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 Group 3 Guy Walter Stakes at Randwick at their next starts, while Red Tracer (2nd in 2013) won the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes at Rosehill before finishing runner-up behind Appearance in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic & Queen Of The Turf Stakes, also at Rosehill. Choice Words (3rd in 2013) won the Group 3 Wenona Girl Handicap at her next start.
