The Doncaster Mile field can be run with a maximum of 20 runners and the Group 1 event often attracts its capacity line-up of autumn horses.

There is generally a last minute scramble to earn a start in the Doncaster Mile field and horses that win the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) , Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m), Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m), Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m), Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) and Group 3 Doncaster Prelude (1600m) earn automatic entry into the Doncaster Mile with a ballot exemption.

The Doncaster Handicap generally draws the best milers from right around Australia competing for a share in the $3 million in Doncaster Mile prize money. The prizemoney for the 2020 Doncaster Mile was cut to $1.5 million to ensure racing could continue for longer with the COVID-19 pandemic, with stakes reinstated at $3 million in 2021.

After running in the Doncaster Mile field horses may back-up a week later and vie for a win in the richest race of the autumn, the weight-for-age Group 1 $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m).

The 2021 Doncaster Mile Field faces off on Day 1 of The Championships on Saturday April 10, 2021.

2021 Doncaster Mile First Acceptances

Around four weeks after the nominations close for the $3 million Doncaster Mile the list of possible runners is cut down by the Doncaster Mile first acceptances, which are taken in early March.

The 2021 Doncaster Mile first acceptances closed on Tuesday March 9, 2021 and left 81 potential runners including Chris Waller’s Caulfield Cup winning mare Verry Elleegant and the all-in favourite Mugatoo who took out the $5 million The All-Star Mile at The Valley.

2021 Doncaster Mile Nominations

The Doncaster Mile nominations close in early February, around two months before the race runs as the feature event on the opening day of The Championships race days at Royal Randwick Racecourse in April during the annual Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Every season the Doncaster Handicap early entries can attract up to 200 handicap hopefuls before the first round of acceptances helps punters narrow down what horses will eventually take to the Randwick track in the final Doncaster Handicap field.

The 2021 Doncaster Mile nominations closed at midday on Tuesday the 9th of February, 2021. 

The Doncaster Mile 2021 nominations drew 151 entries led in betting by star Kiwi mare Probabeel as well as Japanese-trained Group 1 winner Salios.
