The Bondi Stakes $1 million race held at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney. It was created as part of Racing New South Wales’ effort to loosen Victoria’s grip on spring racing. The 1600m race is for three-year-olds and has set weights. In 2020, it will be held on Saturday, October 24, the same day as the Cox Plate.

Kubrick won the 2019 edition of the Bondi Stakes, with Pancho and Colada finishing second and third respectively. The Chris Anderson-trained Ballistic Boy rounded out the first four. After the victory, Kubrick took no further part in the spring.

In late 2018, Racing New South Wales announced the creation of the $1 million Bondi Stakes. It was also when they released news of the Golden Eagle and the Golden Gift. Despite the prize money, the richest three-year-old races in the spring are still the Caulfield Guineas and Victoria Derby, which are both worth $2 million.

2019 Bondi Stakes winner Kubrick clocked 1:34.75 to claim victory ahead of stablemate Pancho. Although it was a decent time, it still didn’t get near Hartnell’s 1600m Randwick track record, which is 1:32.73.
