Adelaide Autumn Carnival

morphettvilleThe 2018 Adelaide Racing Carnival takes place during the months of March, April & May at Morphettville racecourse in Adelaide, South Australia.

Two $1,000,000 races in May, the Robert Sangster Stakes and Goodwood sprint, highlight the Adelaide carnival, while the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) on the Labour Day holiday in March is the first major race of the autumn.

Adelaide is home to four group one races in the autumn which are run over three consecutive race days at Morphettville in May.

Sangster Stakes Day kicks off the three week extravaganza in early May with the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) for fillies and mares and Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m) for three-year-old fillies the feature races of the day. The following week is Derby Day where the $500,000 Group 1 SA Derby (2500m) takes centre stage for three-year-old gallopers.

The feature sprint of the autumn, the Goodwood (1200m), is the major attraction on the final day of the Adelaide autumn carnival in mid to late May.
