Horse Racing | Maurice McCarten Stakes

The Maurice McCarten Stakes is a Group 3 horse race that takes place on Coolmore Classic Day, during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. The event is restricted to horses aged three-years-old and over, and is the shortest race of the day - 1100m. Inaugurated in 2011, the race has attracted mainly quick sprinters which may be preparing for The Galaxy, a Group 1 later in the autumn over the same course and distance.

In 2011, the Darren Smith trained Atomic Force won the Maurice McCarten Stakes before going on to claim The Galaxy less than a month later.
