The Schweppervescence Plate is a 1000m sprint for three-year-olds held at Flemington Racecourse in Victoria. It has set weights plus penalties and a total prize pool of $135,000. In 2020 it will be run on Tuesday, November 3, which is the same day as the Melbourne Cup.

The 2019 edition of the Schweppervescence Plate was won by the Gordon Richards-trained Garner. Jamie Mott rode Can’t Be Done to second place and Hawker Hurricane finished third. Garner didn’t race again in spring but in 2020 did win the Listed Redelva Stakes.

Garner was the only runner for trainer Gordon Richards on Melbourne Cup day in 2019 and marked the only win on the day for Dwayne Dunn. The jockey was onboard Rostropovich in the main event, but sadly his ride suffered an injury during the race.

Garner ran the Flemington 1000m in 0:58.27 to win the 2019 Schweppervescence Plate, and although it was a decent time, it was still just under three seconds behind the track record. It should surprise no one that the Flemington 1000m track record belongs to Balck Caviar, who in 2013 ran 0:55.42.
