Kennedy Cantala Field

The Kennedy Mile field – now known as the Kennedy Cantala field – is normally comprised of the horses from the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m) run at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day and graduates of the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) run at Caulfield at the start of October on Caulfield Guineas Day. Fierce Impact (2019) was the last horse to complete the Toorak – Kennedy Cantala Group 1 spring double.
