3 Gr1s For AJC Derby Day At Randwick
The Australian Jockey Club “will bolster its showpiece Derby Day program by adding the Gr1 T.J.Smith Stakes & Gr1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes to the opening day of the Autumn Carnival at Royal Randwick next year,” reported The Daily Telegraph. This will “ensure 3 Gr1 events are run on Derby Day (April 10) & all races on the program will be stakes grade”. The Galaxy (which was run as the 2nd Gr1 race on Derby Day earlier this year) “has been switched to the 2nd Saturday”. Racing NSW chief executive Peter V’landys said the revised AJC Autumn Carnival programming “would be confirmed by the Pattern Committee in the next few weeks”.
