November 05, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Flemington Racecourse will host the Darley Classic. This race is still part of the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival handled by the Victoria Racing Club.

The Darley Stakes is a Group 1 thoroughbred horse race for three-year old and over. It will be run under weight for age conditions over a total race distance of 1200 meters. The total prize money for the race is A$1 million.

The 10-field horse race will showcase the best horse sprinters in Australia. Manikato Stakes and TJ Smith Stakes winner Chautauqua will be reunited with jockey Dwayne Dunn. The duo will start at barrier four.

The horse race handicappers have installed Chautauqua as the odds on favorite to win the Darley Stakes. Terravista and Srikandi are among Chautauqua's strongest challengers on Saturday noon.
