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.
Crystal Dreamer (2019) finished seventh behind Land of Plenty in the Listed Macleod Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley before the Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra trained gelding proved too good for his rivals in this event.
Recent The Heath 1100 winners include Ball Of Muscle (2018) and Voodoo Lad (2017).
Interestingly enough, Ball Of Muscle (2018) won the Gr2 The Shorts at Randwick in Sydney at his next start while Dothraki (11th in 2018) took out the Bobbie Lewis Quality at Flemington.
Classy mare Samaready (2013) took out the Group 1 AJ Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley after winning this race, while Golden Archer (2nd in 2012) ran second in Gr2 Schillaci Stakes at Caulfield and Platelet (3rd in 2012) finished second in the Gr2 McEwen Stakes at Moonee Valley.
Atomic Force (2011) ran third in the McEwen Stakes following his victory in this race while Testa My Patience (2nd in 2011) managed to win the Gr2 Crystal Mile at Moonee Valley.
