The Championships

Saturday 06 April 2019 to Saturday 13 April 2019

The Grand Finals of Australian Racing: The Championships was inaugurated in 2014 as a Grand Finals concept to feature and showcase the very best of Australian racing as the jewel in the crown of Sydney’s Autumn Carnival.

2019 will witness the sixth year of this exciting initiative, launched by Racing NSW in partnership with The Australian Turf Club.

The Championships' twelve races will be hotly contested to determine champion status over different age groups and distances. Glittering emerald encrusted trophies, designed by acclaimed Sydney jeweller Cerrone are awarded to the winning owner, trainer and jockey.

With a total of AUD21 million prize money on offer, the stage is set for two days of exciting and highly competitive racing. The very best horses in Australia will compete against some of the finest international contestants, at what is a feature occasion in Sydney’s social and sporting calendar.

Royal Randwick, one of Australia’s vibrant and most prestigious racing venues, is a fitting host. Visitors and racing enthusiasts from around the country and overseas will witness world class racing, and enjoy a dazzling array of fashion and award winning hospitality at this grand occasion.
