Chipping Norton Stakes Day has become one of the premier racing days during the Sydney Autumn Spring Racing Carnival. Held at the Royal Randwick Racecourse in western Sydney, it hosts some of the more prestigious Listed and Group races, including the Chipping Norton Stakes and the Surround Stakes. Given the Chipping Norton Stakes is the first Group 1 race of the year, big numbers usually venture to ‘the Farm’.
Total prize money on the day is well over the $1m mark, with horses either trained at Randwick or having had experience on the track, better suited. With so much to offer on the day for punters, racing enthusiasts and the trendy socialites, it is a much anticipated day on the Sydney racing calendar.
