Toorak Handicap History
The first Toorak Handicap was run and won 1881 by Josephine.
The quality of recent winners doesn’t reflect the history of the race, with Galilee, Gunsynd and More Joyous among the former champions of the event.
The Toorak Handicap is a ballot exempt race for the Caulfield Cup but history suggests it is somewhat of a poisoned chalice with Leilani the last horse to complete the Toorak/Caulfield cup double in 1974.
Champion stayer Galilee was able to win the Toorak Handicap/Caulfield Cup/Melbourne Cup treble in 1966, a feat which has never been replicated.
Toorak Handicap Field
The 2019 Toorak Handicap field won’t be finalised until the week leading into the event.
The Toorak Handicap field consists of likely 18 runners with four emergencies chomping at the bit to get a spot in the event.
Toorak Handicap Form Guide
When assessing the Toorak Handicap form guide, a key lead-up race is the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes held three weeks prior to this event. It’s run under the same conditions and is run at Caulfield, making it the logical precursor.
Form out of the Toorak Handicap often stacks up nicely in the Group One Emirates Stakes at Flemington on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
There has been a good mix of middle-distance and staying winners, which has made it tough for punters to identify the winner, and it’s not always the big names that take this event out.
Punters should look at form from prior Melbourne Spring Carnivals as a good for the Toorak Handicap.
