Epsom Handicap results play an important role in betting on future races over the Sydney and Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Winners of the Epsom Handicap often go on to win other events throughout the racing season including in 2015 when Winx backed-up and took out Melbourne’s weight-for-age Cox Plate next start.
Some champions have even produced consecutive Epsom Handicap wins including Desert War (2004, 2005) and Super Impose (1990, 1991). Apart from the initial desire to know whether your favoured horse won, the Epsom Handicap results also list the exact Epsom Handicap finishing order, starting prices on all runners, the winning jockey / trainer, winning time and margins.
Online bookmakers that specialise in horse racing such as Ladbrokes.com.au are the first to give you not just detailed information on each Epsom Handicap participant, but the Epsom Handicap results as well.

Past Epsom Handicap Results
It is true that past Epsom Handicap winners have gone on to defend their title in the following year, but what is most important when studying the Epsom Handicap results is the lead up races. Thanks to the popularity of the Epsom Handicap, each competing horse will race in several smaller events in the weeks and months leading up it. This means that looking at past Epsom Handicap results isn’t your only option when deciding on who to back.
If you are looking for information on horses in addition to the Epsom Handicap results, an online bookmaker will be able to provide you with the results from previous races.
A lot of the time, especially when a big event such as the Epsom Handicap is coming up, the online bookie will create an Epsom Handicap form guide that includes analyses of each competing horse, including the results from their most recent events.
So the trick to figuring out which horses to back lies in not just the Epsom Handicap results from previous years, but information and race results from events in the weeks leading up to the Epsom Handicap.
Epsom Handicap Winners
While the winners from previous years may not always perform at the same level the following season, there is some worth in keeping an eye on recent Epsom Handicap winners.
The Epsom Handicap is an excellent example of how important previous race winners can be when deciding which horse to back. There have been several Epsom Handicap winners that have gone on to win the title in consecutive years.
The famous two-time Cox Plate-winning stallion Chatham picked up back-to-back Epsom Handicap wins in 1932 and 1933, while Australian Racing Hall of Famer Super Impose dominated the early 1990s with consecutive Epsom Handicap victories.
More recently, the Gai Waterhouse-trained Desert War managed to gain plenty of attention for winning the Epsom Handicap not once, but twice (2004, 2005) – both times returning massive payouts for the supporting punters.
Epsom Handicap results can provide bettors with that extra edge when deciding who to back in the upcoming race, to be sure to use an online bookmaker like Ladbrokes.com.au when making a wager on the next big race.
