Restricted Races

Australia is home to many of the world’s most famous and lucrative races, the most well-known of which are the high status Group 1, 2 and 3 events including the renowned Melbourne Cup.

All the thoroughbred races around the country are categorised according to factors including the prizemoney on offer, location and the level of competition the race attracts annually with the grading done by the Australian Racing Board.

Aside from the black type Group and Listed races, there is another class of thoroughbred competitions that although don’t have Group status, still include some of the richest and most prestigious of events.

Restricted races are a group of events where horses that have been sold through a specific yearling sale or have been bred within a certain area or at a particular stable are eligible to compete.

These restricted races are unable to receive Group or Listed status according to the Australian Racing Board’s guidelines, and therefore are not as largely recognised or celebrated.

Examples of some of Australia’s most popular restricted races include those held at the Gold Coast Magic Millions Racing Carnival in Queensland such as the Magic Millions 2YO Classic.

Another famous set of Restricted Races are the Select Inglis Sale Races open solely to graduates of the Inglis Select Yearling Sales that take place at racetracks around Australia throughout the year.
