Ramornie Handicap 2022

Wednesday July 13th, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: Peter Snowden has an excellent record in the Ramornie Handicap.

The Ramornie Handicap is held at the tail-end of the New South Winter Racing Carnival the Wednesday after Queensland’s Winx Guineas Day and takes place at Grafton Racecourse as one of two Black-Type features run by the Clarence River Jockey Club.

The mid-week Listed event is the feature race on Ramornie Handicap Day, which is the opening meeting of the two-day Grafton Cup Carnival that concludes on the Thursday with Grafton Cup Day.

A quality handicap race contested over 1200m, the Ramornie Handicap offers $200,000 in prize money and a ballot exemption into that year’s Group 3 Cameron Handicap contested at Newcastle.

The Ramornie Handicap attracts a strong line-up of winter sprinters each year and there are a host of lead-up races that offer a ballot exemption into the field including Brisbane’s Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes (1200m) held on Tattersall’s Tiara Day at Eagle Farm. Big Money (2014) was the last horse to complete the WJ Healy – Ramornie double.

The next edition of the Ramornie Handicap runs on Wednesday July 13th, 2022.
