Epsom Handicap History

The Epsom Handicap is one of Sydney's most popular Spring Carnival races.

With over 150 years of history on the Australian sporting landscape, the Epsom Handicap is a time-honoured race.

The race has been over the mile journey for the majority of its lifetime, with a brief period of five years where the Epsom was run at 1800m.

Named in honour of the famous Epsom Downs racecourse in England, the mile contest has seen some of the country's absolute best fight it out with Imposing, Winx, Nightmarch among the gallopers to claim the prize.

The winner gets a ballot exemption to run into the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, which runs during The Championships in April.
