The Heath 1100 is a set weights and penalty race for 4yo and upwards horses and generally attracts a field of more than handy gallopers who often go on to perform admirably in better quality races during the Melbourne spring racing carnival.
The Gr3 Aurie's Star Handicap held earlier in the month at Flemington provides a good lead-up race to The Heath 1100 while the upcoming Gr3 Bobbie Lewis Quality at the same track in September may be next on the agenda for sprinters contesting this race.
Voodoo Lad (2017) resumed from a spell to win this event in classy style and recent The Heath 1100 winners include Redzel (2016) and Bounding (2015).
