2021 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.

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 2021 The All-Star Mile Final Field & Barriers are announced on Tuesday March 9, 2021 and will be listed below.

The All-Star Mile 2021 field has been confirmed with betting led by the two mares who ran the quinella in the Futurity Stakes – Probabeel and Arcadia Queen – drawn barriers 10 and 5 respectively.

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).
