The TL Baillieu Handicap – currently known as The Schweppervescence for sponsorship purposes – is a Group 3 race conducted at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in late March during the annual Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

A quality handicap for two-year-old horses run over 1400m, the event offers $160,000 in total prize money and is a key support act on Tancred Stakes Day that is headlined by two Group 1 races – the Tancred Stakes (2400m) and Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).

Young horses head into the TL Baillieu Handicap field via earlier autumn runs in races including the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) or Group 3 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) a fortnight earlier at the track.

Following a run in the TL Baillieu Handicap, two-year-olds may continue onto the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick or step up to a mile for the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) in mid-April.

In 2016 Prized Icon ran second in the Baillieu Handicap and won the Champagne Stakes two starts later. The following year, The Mission (2017) won the Baillieu and after an unplaced Sires’ run took out the Group 1 Champagne Stakes.

The TL Baillieu Handicap 2020 ran on Saturday March 28, 2020 as The Schweppervescence and was won by Holyfield.

2020 TL Baillieu Handicap Field

The TL Baillieu Handicap field draws classy two-year-olds showing the potential to run out a strong 1400m or even a mile. Many of the youngsters in the race missed out on a run in the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) the weekend prior, or were saved for this easy target.

The official 2020 TL Baillieu Handicap Field & Barriers will be released by Racing NSW on Wednesday March 25, 2020 and listed below.

The Schweppervescence 2020 field features a capacity line-up of Inglis Sires’-bound two-year-olds led in betting by the widely-drawn Return With Honour coming off a close finish in the Group 3 Black Opal Stakes in Canberra.

TL Baillieu Handicap History

The TL Baillieu Handicap has been run and won since 1986 and is named in honour of the Australian Jockey Club’s former Chairman Tom Latham Baillieu. From 2010 – 2016 it ran as The Schweppervescence and after starting out as a Listed race it gained Group 3 status in 2011.

Before the move to Rosehill Racecourse in 2010 the TL Baillieu Handicap was previously contested at a number of other Sydney race tracks including Royal Randwick, Randwick’s Kensington track and Warwick Farm Racecourse.
