2018 Autumn Racing Carnival: C.F. Orr Stakes February 08, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia will host the C.F. Orr Stakes. The C.F. Orr Stakes is the 1st Group 1 race of the new racing season. It is a weight for age race that will run over a distance of 1400 metres. The total prize money at stake is A$500,000.

As the first Group 1 race of the season, it has generated interest with 7 out of the 14 runners are already winners at the highest level. Among them defending champion Black Heart Bart, Winx's practice buddy Hartnell, Australian Cup favorite Tosen Stardom and Caulfield Guineas winner Mighty Boss.

Black Heart Bart is poised for another great run after drawing gate 3. It would be tough for Hartnell and Tosen Stardom who drew the wide position at gates 12 and 14.

The horse race handicappers have installed Tosen Stardom as the horse to beat on Saturday's C.F. Orr Stakes in Caulfield Racecourse.
