List of All Group One Races and More

Group 1 & Feature Race List

Group 1 races are known as the top-tier horse races in Australia, where the best of the best go up against each other for what normally is significant prize money and a thrilling watch. There are also several key feature races that aren’t Group 1s, but due to the prize money on offer, they generate a lot of interest and bring in some of the best runners in the country.
