The Bill Ritchie Handicap is a handicap race over 1400m and can sometimes attract horses planning to progress to the Gr1 Epsom Handicap on the final day of the carnival over an extra 200 metres.
Generally won by a handy horse rather than a topliner, the Bill Ritchie Handicap has not been a great guide to the Epsom Handicap in recent times, although Captain Sonador (2010) managed to win the Epsom at his next start after running third in this race.
Siege Of Quebec (2018) ran seventh in the Theo Marks Stakes over 1300m at Rosehill before pulling out all stops to win this event for the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott stable at Randwick.
Recent Bill Ritchie Handicap winners include Comin' Through (2017) and Sons Of John (2016).
