Belmont Sprint

Belmont Sprint, Belmont Park

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

Run over 1,400 metres, the Belmont Sprint is a Group 3 race taking place at Belmont Park Racecourse during either late May or early June. With a $200,000 prize purse, the weight-for-age event has been run and won since 1963 and many of Perth’s top horses have saluted including Luckygray (2015). 

From 1963 to 1979, the race was run as a Principal Race. Ever since 1980, it has held and maintained Group 3 status.

Until 2015, the race had been run as a Quality Handicap, as opposed to its current Weight For Age conditions. The Group 3 Roma Cup (1200m) is the key lead-up into the Belmont Sprint and Rock Magic (2017) was the last horse to do the double.
