The Galaxy 2021
Table of Contents
The Galaxy is a 1,100m Group One Sprint.
It is held under handicap conditions, and is for runners of three-years-old and upwards.
This is the first Group One sprint of the Sydney Autumn Carnival.
Some runners prefer to tackle the race first-up after a spell, while others use the Challenge Stakes as a lead-up race.
In 2020m the Galaxy was won by I Am Excited, with Miss Leonidas and Tofane taking out second and third respectively.
The final Group 1 on #GoldenSlipper Day was definitely cause for excitement!

2021 The Galaxy Best Bets
It is difficult to bet into the 2021 The Galaxy with confidence at this early stage, though Haut Brion Her should be hitting the event second up and could certainly run a big race, as she ran well in some top line sprint events last spring like The Everest.
Nature Strip, Written Beauty, and Masked Crusader are no certainties to line up here, so I’d be looking for runners like Libertini and Dirty Work at odds.
