TJ Smith Stakes 2013 betting odds, tips and preview – Epaulette

Epaulette will be having his first run back since a very good third in the Caulfield Guineas. I would think they will be too quick for him here but he will be doing his best work late. Look out for him over more distance and against his own age.

2013 TJ Smith Stakes tips

Even though the day is billed as “Derby Day”, it’s fair to say this race will be the highlight of the day for most as it features world’s best sprinter – Black Caviar. Unbeaten in twenty-four starts, she’ll be lining up for Group 1 win number 15! She’s un-backable odds for most of us at $1.08 but everyone will be cheering her home.

About the TJ Smith Stakes

The TJ Smith Stakes is a Group 1 race held under weight for age conditions. Taking place each year at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, this event is an important part of the autumn racing season. The TJ Smith Stakes is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $1,000,000 in prize money.

The TJ Smith Stakes regularly attracts a high quality field of sprinters from around the country, who battle it out on the same day as the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby and the AJC Sires Produce Stakes. This race has been won by a number of fine horses over the years, including names like Bentley Biscuit, Apache Cat, Takeover Target, Melito between 2007 and 2010, and Black Caviar in 2011.

Some of the lead up races for this event include the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes and Group 1 George Ryder Stakes, with level weight conditions often favouring to the best horses from these races. The Group 1 William Reid Stakes over 1200 metres at Moonee Valley Racecourse can also be a good indicator, with Black Caviar winning this event on her way to win the 2011 TJ Smith Stakes.

After racing in the TJ Smith Stakes, horses may go on to the Group 1 All Aged Stakes, which is held over 1400 metres at the same track a few weeks later. The TJ Smith Stakes has been run since 1997, making it a new inclusion on the Sydney racing circuit. Originally a Listed Race in its first year, this event became a Group 3 race in 1998, a Group 2 race in 2002, and finally a Group 1 race in 2005.

Recent winners of the TJ Smith Stakes include Apache Cat in 2008, Takeover Targe in 2009, Melito in 2010, Black Caviar in 2011, and Master Of Design in 2012. Master Of Design took out the 2012 race ahead of Rain Affair in second position and Hallowell Belle in third place.
