The Kennedy Cantala – briefly known as the Kennedy Mile and previously known as the Emirates Stakes / Longines Mile / Cantala Stakes – is Melbourne’s richest 1600m race for the spring with $1.5 million prize money. This Group 1 race – briefly called the Longines Mile for sponsorship purposes – is a quality handicap raced at Flemington on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Racing Carnival.
The event runs on Victoria Derby Day on the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup, which takes place on the first Tuesday of November, along with three other Group 1 races.
The Kennedy Cantala shares a race program with the: Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) for three-year-old stayers, the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) for three-year-old sprinters and the Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) for fillies and mares.
The Kennedy Cantala was previously known as the Emirates Stakes and run over the mile on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. The new-look Emirates Stakes race is now run as the Mackinnon Stakes, contested over 2000m on the Saturday after the Melbourne Cup, while the old Emirates Stakes is now the Kennedy Cantala run over 1600m on the Saturday before Melbourne Cup Day.
The 2020 Kennedy Cantala runs on Saturday October 31, 2020 .
