2021 Doncaster Mile
Table of Contents
The Doncaster Mile is a time-honoured handicap over the mile, run on the opening day of The Championships at Randwick during Sydney’s autumn racing carnival.
With the race being run under handicap conditions, it gives gallopers somewhat even footing, with stars of the turf forced to carry a heavy weight, whereas younger horses like three-year-olds are given a fighting chance with a significant weight relief, making it an entertaining contest for punters.
The first running of the Doncaster Mile was way back in 1866, and over the years there have been many greats to win the contest, including Wakeful (1901), Chatham (1934), Tobin Bronze (1967), Gunsynd (1972), Super Impose (1990, 1991), Sunline (1999, 2002), Grand Armee (2003), and Winx (2016).
Nettoyer won the 2020 Doncaster Mile, coming from the back of the field at the turn to emerge victorious in spectacular fashion.

2021 Doncaster Mile Best Bets
Kiwi raider Aegon looked a potential star when taking out the Hobartville Stakes (1400m) in his first Australian start, and could certainly be more than competitive in a Doncaster under Handicap conditions, where he would be awarded a relatively low weight as a three year old. He’s already won over the mile in New Zealand in the Karaka Million, and looks a reasonable play at the current quote.
Probabeel has returned in outstanding order so far this preparation, taking out the Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes and the Futurity Stakes over the seven furlongs so far, and will be suited by the mile as well. She’s heading to the All Star Mile and could very well win that on her current form, and would take a power of beating in a Doncaster. Also, she’s already won the spring equivalent of the race, winning the 2020 Epsom Handicap.
Salios is a lightly raced Japanese colt who has already racked up some impressive wins in his short career, including the Saudi Arabia Royal Cup, the Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes, and the Mainichi Okan. We all know the supreme quality of Japanese horses and the success that they have when they come to Australia, this galloper must be respected.
