Australia Group 2 Horse Races

Group 2 races (also known as Group Two, Grade II or G2 races) are the second highest level of Thoroughbred and Standardbred stakes races. Only about 80 races are designated as Groupd 2 races per season. The Pattern Committee of the Australian Racing Board recommends which races are designated as Group or Listed races.

Group 2 races are also significant as they serve as a yardstick for horses who may have potential to compete in Group 1 races. The minimun purse for a Group 2 race is around $175,000.
