Underwood Stakes 2018 Betting

The Underwood Stakes runs at Caulfield Racecourse on a Sunday in late September as part of a bumper weekend of sports and racing that includes the Group 1 AJ Moir Stakes at The Valley on the Friday night in Melbourne and the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes for three-year-olds on the Saturday in Sydney. 

A Group 1 race contested over 1800m, the Underwood Stakes offers $750,000 in prize money and serves as a key lead-up into the Australasian weight-for-age championship, the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) held at Moonee Valley a month later.

So You Think (2010) was the last galloper to complete the Underwood Stakes – Cox Plate double.
