Victoria’s All-Star Mile race is a recently created multi-million dollar feature event contested during the annual Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. First run and won in 2019 with Mystic Journey the inaugural champion from Tasmania, the 1600m showdown began at Flemington Racecourse.

In 2020 it was held at Caulfield with Perth champion Regal Power saluting, while the 2021 edition of The All-Star Mile was conducted at Moonee Valley Racecourse and won by the New South Wales-trained Mugatoo.

The 2022 edition returned to its inaugural home at Flemington Racecourse and saw the favourite Zaaki salute.

In 2023 the race moved back to Moonee Valley, The Valley the second course to host the event twice, and was won by Mr Brightside who improved on a fourth in the race the year before.

The 2024 The All-Star Mile was again hosted by Caulfield Racecourse for the second time.

The Special Conditions race originally saw members of the Australian and New Zealand public vote for eligible horses to contest the event.

The voting system has since been removed with the 2024 All-Star Mile field featuring an expanded 16 runners.

Up to eight of those may come via the ‘Win and You’re In’ races that begin with the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes in November of 2023.

A panel of experts from Racing Victoria and the Melbourne Racing Club select the remaining ‘Wildcard’ horses in the All-Star Mile race field, which is contested at weight-for-age.

The All-Star Mile prize money for 2024 was been cut to $3,750,000.

The All-Star Mile 2024 RESULTS

The official 2024 All-Star Mile results will be available below once the race takes place on Saturday March 16, 2024. 

  1. #12 Pride Of Jenni
  2. #1 Mr Brightside
  3. #2 Cascadian

The dream of a back-to-back All-Star Mile victory for Mr Brightside ($2) wasn’t meant to be, as Ciaron Maher’s Pride Of Jenni ($3.80) stole the show at Caulfield on Saturday dominating the 2024 All-Star Mile results by two lengths off a five week break. In a display of raw power and blistering speed, Pride Of Jenni led from gate to wire, leaving the pre-race favourite and the rest of the field in her wake. Last year’s runner-up, Cascadian, displayed his affinity for the race once again with a hard-fought third-place finish.

WHICH HORSE WILL WIN The All-Star Mile in 2024?

The best way to pick which horse will win The All-Star Mile in 2024 is to take into account their lead-up autumn racing form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry and look for the proven Group 1 performers in the mix.

Additional factors to consider when picking the All-Star Mile winner include:

  • Proven Milers: Horses proven at the 1600m have an excellent record in the short history of this race.
  • Interstate Raiders: The opening four editions of The All-Star Mile were all won by horses trained outside of Melbourne with Mystic Journey (Tasmania, 2019), Regal Power (Western Australia, 2020), Mugatoo (New South Wales, 2021) and Zaaki (New South Wales, 2022). Mr Brightside (Victoria, 2023) was the first Melbourne-trained All-Star Mile winner followed by Pride Of Jenni (Victoria, 2024).

The all Star Mile Favourites 2024

Early favourites in 2024 The All-Star Mile betting include last year’s hero Mr Brightside who went on to win his next four starts on the trot, the Ciaron Maher-trained Pride Of Jenni who won the Group 1 Empire Rose – Champions Mile double last spring, and evergreen Godolphin-raced nine-year-old Cascadian who comes off a fourth in the Group 1 Verry Elleegant Stakes.

In 2022 Zaaki ($2.40) was the first and remains to date the only All-Star Mile favourite to win.
