Looking for early info on this year’s Tulloch Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.

Run over 2,000 metres each year on Easter Saturday, the Tulloch Stakes is a Group 1 race. With a $200,000 prize purse, it attracts some of Australia’s best medium to long distance males, including quite a few entrants from New Zealand.
