|The Galaxy odds|
The Galaxy is an 1100m dash for accomplished sprinters and has been won by many a good horse over the years including Bel Sprinter (2013), Nicconi (2009), Typhoon Zed (2008), Spark Of Life (2004), Mistegic (2002), Gold Ace (1996) and the brilliant Schillaci (1992).
It is generally a frantic affair with a big field of speedy horses and the barrier draw plays an important part during the running of the race. Horses drawn out wide face a tough task due to the early speed in the race and an inside draw is a big advantage.
The Galaxy is generally one of the most exciting sprint races of the carnival and a race like the Group 2 Challenge Stakes provides a good lead up to The Galaxy. Smart sprinter Snitzerland (2nd in 2013) took out the Challenge Stakes before finishing runner-up in this race.
Nature Strip (2019) proved too classy in this event and recent The Galaxy winners include In Her Time (2018) and Russian Revolution (2017).
