The All-Star Mile is one of the richest and youngest races added to the Australian Racing calendar for the first time in 2019 and is part of the growing number of Special Condition races held down under.

Now offering $5 million in prize money, The All-Star Mile is a key feature of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival held in mid-March on the weekend after Flemington’s ‘Super Saturday’.
Run at the different major race tracks in Melbourne, the inaugural The All-Star Mile was contested at Flemington and won by star Tasmanian-trained filly and last start Australian Guineas champ Mystic Journey.
The 2020 edition of The All-Star Mile ran at Caulfield Racecourse, the weight-for-age event run over 1600m by a capacity field of 15 starters plus four emergencies.
The 2020 All-Star Mile ran at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday March 14, 2020 as the final feature of the Melbourne Festival of Racing and saw the Grant & Alana Williams-trained Perth raiders Regal Power and Superstorm run the quinella.

2020 All-Star Mile Betting
Futures betting on The All-Star Mile opens weeks ahead of the race and heats up once voting on the Top 10 All-Star Mile horses opens.

Once The All-Star Mile final field is released, betting markets are confirmed and updated odds will be available below courtesy of Ladbrokes.com.au.
2020 The All-Star Mile Field
The All-Star Mile field was expanded in 2020 to 15 runners, 10 of which are voted in by the public. After originally only being open to Australian racing fans, voting on the Top 10 All-Star Mile horses was opened up to New Zealand residents as well for the second edition in 2020.
A further two horses in The All-Star mile field may come via the ‘win and you’re in’ events leading-up to the race. The winner of both the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) and Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) get a ballot free ride into the All-Star mile should connections chose to accept for their Auto-Entry Race Winners.
A body of Racing Victoria specialists then determine three Wildcard entries for The All-Star Mile along with six Provisional Emergencies that can gain a start should any number of the Top 10 Horses, Auto-Race Entry Winners and or Wildcard entries chose not to accept.
The official 2020 The All-Star Mile Final Field & Barriers are announced on Tuesday March 10, 2020 and will be listed below.
The All-Star Mile 2020 Final Field is now out with markets led by flying Queensland-trained three-year-old Alligator Blood drawn in barrier 10. Futurity Stakes winner Streets Of Avalon is drawn one wider in gate 11 and is the only other last start winner in the mix after the other auto-race entry winner Fifty Stars (Blamey Stakes) was a non-acceptor following his Australian Cup win on Super Saturday.

The All-Star Mile History
The All-Star Mile was first contested in 2019 and took place at Flemington Racecourse. The race will rotate around the three major metropolitan racetracks in Melbourne going to Caulfield in 2020 and Moonee Valley in 2021.
The inaugural The All-Star Mile winner was the Tasmanian-trained filly Mystic Journey who came off an historical Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) victory where she became the first Group 1 winner from Tasmanian in a century.
The second edition of The All-Star Mile took place at a closed Caulfield Racecourse due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The results were dominated by the Perth-trained stablemates Regal Power (1st) and Superstorm (2nd).
