Welcome to the race preview for The Big Dance 2023, held at Randwick Racecourse on Tuesday, the 7th of November 2023. The Big Dance is one of Australia’s, and Racing New South Wales’, many new, lucrative Group 1 thoroughbred horse races introduced to the elite Australian racing circuit within the past 24 months.
Won by Rustic Steel in 2022, The Big Dance found great success in its inaugural year on the Australian thoroughbred circuit with most of that thanks being attributed towards the eye watering $2 million AUD on offer for its first ever year.
The Big Dance 2022 definitely turned some heads due to its race time being just 30 minutes prior to the ‘Race That Stops The Nation’, the 2022 Melbourne Cup held at Flemington Racecourse. However, Randwick Racecourse and Racing New South Wales did well to pull it off, as The Big Dance 2023 is slated to go ahead on November 7, 2023, in the same time-slot, but this time with $3 million AUD up for grabs for its competitors venturing to Randwick Racecourse to battle it out.
In this preview to the massive feature horse race, the 2023 The Big Dance, we will take a look at the feature race itself held at Randwick Racecourse in the titular section ‘The Feature Race – The Big Dance 2023’, which includes critical information on prize money, previous fields, and the winners from those fields (The Big Dance 2022 won by Rustic Steel), as well as what to look for in a potential winner in the 2023 The Big Dance race, and how to qualify for the main 2023 The Big Dance race – my favourite part of this entire preview and why I believe the The Big Dance feature race is here to stay!
Following this section, we will then look at where, what, and how to bet on The Big Dance 2023 and similar giant feature thoroughbred horse races in Australia. These sections include a guide on how to select and bet with an available Australian bookmaker and what punts to place on The Big Dance 2023, and other races on Tuesday the 7th of November 2023 at Randwick Racecourse, in addition to the 2023 Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse which runs 30 minutes after 2023’s The Big Dance.
