Epsom Handicap History

The Epsom Handicap is one of Sydney's top spring races, with over 150 years of history.

The race has been over the mile journey for the majority of its lifetime, with a brief period of five years where the Epsom was run at 1800m.

Named in honour of the famous Epsom Downs racecourse in England, the mile contest has seen the best of the best taking out the prize including Imposing, Winx, and Nightmarch.

Alongside the $1 million prize pool, the winner gets a ballot exempt run into the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, making a win in the Epsom all the more valuable for the field.
