The Championships Betting Tips, Best Bookmakers & Free Bets
The Championships was inaugurated in 2014 and it now features some of the world's biggest thoroughbred racing.
With over $20 million in stake money on offer across two Saturdays, The Championships is rivaling the Melbourne Cup carnival for attention and it's Sydney's biggest carnival.
Held every April on consecutive Saturdays at Randwick, The Championships highlights the very best in Australia and around the world over multiple disciplines.
Sprinting, middle-distance and staying events are all featured over the two days and punters target this carnival every year.
With four Group 1 races featured each day, The Championships is non-stop action and is only getting bigger on the global scale.
