AJC Metropolitan Handicap

AJC Metropolitan Handicap

The Metropolitan is a Group 1 Australian Thoroughbred horse race held under open handicap conditions, for horses aged 3 years old and upwards, over a distance of 2400 metres (one mile and a half). It is one of the main races in the Sydney Spring Carnival held in early October at Randwick Racecourse, along with the Epsom Handicap over 1600 metres. Many great household names have won this race, but none have won the treble of The Metropolitan, Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup.
