Epsom Handicap Field

The Epsom Handicap field is one of the most eagerly awaited fields of the Spring Carnival. The Epsom Handicap field races over 1600m at the renowned Royal Randwick Racecourse. Open to horses aged three years old and up, the Epsom Handicap field attracts some very strong mile runners from around the nation. Some international raiders have been included in the Epsom Handicap field in the past, chasing the quite considerable $500,000 prize money on offer.

2016 Epsom Handicap Field

The final 2016 Epsom Handicap field will be released on Wednesday the first of October. Some of the horses in the final 2015 Epsom Handicap field will likely have competed in the set weights Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes two weeks prior, so keep an eye on that race for form. Expect to see a highly talented number of horses line up for the 2015 Epsom Handicap field, as the race is in the heart of the Spring Carnival and therefore of high strategic value to trainers getting their runners in form.

The 2016 Epsom Handicap field is below.

As soon as it becomes available, the 2016 Epsom Handicap field will be published here.
