2020 The Heath 1100 Results

  • 1st: #13 Diamond Effort
  • 2nd: #14 Lyre
  • 3rd: #4 Runson



The The Heath 1100 Stakes is a Group 3 1100 metre sprint held at Melbourne’s renowned Caulfield Racecourse on Memsie Stakes Day in late August or early September.

Open to horses aged four years and older, The Heath is run under set weights with penalties conditions. The Heath 1100 field usually attracts a decent variety of gallopers, with some of Melbourne’s classier sprinters often entering the field. While only a Group 3 event, The Heath’s calendar spot and the lack of other options means that it attracts a worthy field.

Those horses that perform well in The Heath usually go on to continue their spring campaigns during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. For this reason, it’s always a good idea to check out the from in The Heath.

The race can serve as a guide to upcoming features including even Randwick’s $15 million The Everest (1200m) – the richest turf race in the world.

One of the major lead up races to The Heath is the Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m), a Group 3 sprint held at Flemington Racecourse. Many horses who have a good run in The Heath might go on to contest the Group 2 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m).

The Heath 1100 shares its race program with three other Group events: the Group 1 Memsie Stakes, Group 3 McNeil Stakes and Group 3 Cockram Stakes. 

In 2019 Gytrash ran second in The Heath 1100 results before winning the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning the following February.

The The Heath 2020 ran on Saturday August 29, 2020 and was won by Diamond Effort for her fifth victory on the trot.
