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 2021 ran on Saturday April 3, 2021 as The Schweppervescence and was won by Team Hawkes’ VRC Sires’ runner-up Saif.
