William Hill's Big Bonus on Sydney's Final Group One
April 16, 2015
Sydney’s Autumn Racing Carnival is drawing to a close but not before the last Group One is contested. The All Aged Stakes is the main attraction at Randwick this Saturday and racing connections will be desperate to deliver a final big win in a feature event. William Hill’s giving punters one last to chance for a huge Group One win with their All Aged Stakes offer. Correctly back the trifecta and the Bookmaker will match your winnings 100%, up to $100 with a bonus bet. The offer applies to punters’ first trifecta selection but as long as they pick the first, second and third horse, they’ll be enjoying extra winnings with William Hill.
Recent Race Results
The All Aged Stakes is a Group One weight-for-age for all horses held over a distance of 1400 metres, with a total prize pool of $400,000. Japanese horse ‘Hana’s Goal’ won the event last year while the likes of ‘Atlantic Jewel’ and ‘Black Caviar’s’ half-brother ‘All To Hard’ have also triumphed in recent years. Champion sprinter ‘Hay List’ emphatically beat his rivals in the absence of Black Caviar in a memorable race in 2011. ‘Rough Habit’ won consecutive All Aged Stakes in 1992 and 1993 while ‘Sunline’ has also been a two time winner in 2000 and 2002, though no runner has won the race multiple times since the distance was reduced from a mile to 1400 metres in 2004. Over the past decade the All Aged Stakes has developed a strong alignment with what is now Australia’s richest sprint race, the 1200 metre T J Smith Stakes. ‘Shamekha’ and ‘Bentley Biscuit’ won both races in 2005 and 2007 respectively; can ‘Chautauqua’ do the double in 2015?
Plenty of Chances
Favourite ‘Chautauqua’ is around $3 to triumph this year but is by no means a certainty. ‘Rebel Dane’ was close to an even money favourite in 2014 and couldn’t manage to run a place. But Chautauqua is now proven at Group One level and his last start was an excellent win over 1400 metres in the Hawkesbury Guineas. ‘Terravista’ has a 1200 metre Group One win over Chautauqua and the extra 200 metres looks a plus. While ‘Shooting To Win,’ and ‘Scissor Kick’ should also cherish the 1400 metres. Throw ‘Dissident’ and ‘Lucky Hussler’ into the mix and this race has plenty of Group One winners… which means picking the winner isn’t easy!
