Horse Racing | Expressway Stakes

The Expressway Stakes is a Group 2 race held at the prestigious Rosehill Gardens Racecourse during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Contested over 1200m, the event boats prize money of $200,000. It is the perfect starting point for horses with bigger fish to fry later in the carnival, or sprinters not quite up to A-grade standard. It may not be the most lucrative race during the carnival, but it definitely has its place. Horses that race in the Expressway generally go on to race in other Group 2 races such as the Apollo Stakes later in the month

In 2014, classy mare Appearance won this event first up for Guy Walter, before going to take out the Group 2 Apollo Stakes and the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes, both also at Randwick. Between 2010 and 2012, jockey Corey Brown enjoyed a ‘triple treat’ of Expressways winning on Rangirangdo, Centennial Park and Rain Affair for three different trainers.
