The Epsom Handicap is the major race of the Randwick spring carnival and is one of two tough Group 1 mile races held at Randwick each year, with the other being the Doncaster Handicap in April.
Rich in history, the Epsom Handicap always attracts many of Australia's best milers. It's been won by some talented gallopers over the years, including Theseo (2008), Racing To Win (2006), Shogun Lodge (2000), Dodge (1998), Filante (1996), and the grand miler Super Impose, who was a memorable dual winner of this race in 1990-91.
Outstanding mare Winx (2015) scored a scintillating victory in this race before heading to Melbourne at her next start to win Australia's greatest weight-for-age race, the Gr1 WS Cox Plate, in outstanding fashion.
In recent years Boban (2013) and Spurtonic (4th in 2013) also headed to the Melbourne spring racing carnival to win the Gr3 Moonga Stakes and Gr2 David Jones Cup respectively at Caulfield. Boban also managed to win the Gr1 Emirates Stakes on the final day of the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Hartnell (2018) ran fourth in the Gr2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes over 1600m at Moonee Valley in Melbourne before heading to Sydney to win this event in stylish fashion for the James Cummings stable.
Recent Epsom Handicap winners include Happy Clapper (2017) and Hauraki (2016).
