The Australian Turf Club has today received strong nominations for two of its major spring races – the Group 1 $1 million TAB Epsom (1600m), and Group 1 $750,000 The Metropolitan (2400m).
A total of 89 horses were nominated for this year’s TAB Epsom, and 73 horses in The Metropolitan, to be both run at Royal Randwick on Saturday 30 September.
ATC Executive General Manager of Racing James Heddo said: “It is pleasing to see such good numbers in both races with all the leading stables strongly represented.
“In particular we are pleased with such strong support from leading Victorian trainers including Darren Weir, Robert Hickmott and the Hayes and Dabernig team.
“This year’s Sydney Spring Carnival is shaping as one of the strongest and most exciting yet.’’
Weights for both feature races will be released by Racing NSW on 18 September.
