The All-Star Mile 2024

Ladbrokes Tip: The Australian Guineas is a good form race to follow for any three-year-old The All-Star Mile contestants

Designed in 2018 for middle distance horses, The All-Star Mile is a special conditions race held during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

In 2022 the event was officially known as The Seppelt Wines All-Star Mile.

In 2023 a change of sponsorship saw the event run as The Sharp EIT All-Star Mile.

Featuring a prize pool of $3.75 million after being reduced from $5 ahead of the 2024 edition, the Special Condition race rotates year-to-year across all three major Victorian tracks with the inaugural edition taking place in 2019 at Flemington Racecourse and won by that year’s Australian Guineas winning filly Mystic Journey.

The 2020 The All-Star Mile moved from Flemington to Caulfield Racecourse and saw the Perth-trained stablemates Regal Power (1st) and Superstorm (2nd) run the quinella.

For 2021 the third edition of The All-Star Mile was conducted at The Valley and won by New South Wales’ visitor Mugatoo, winner of the previous spring’s Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup.

The All-Star Mile race returned to Flemington in 2022 and ran at the track with the favourite Zaaki saluting for the punters.

In 2023 The All-Star Mile took place at Moonee Valley for the second time and saw the 2022 fourth placed Mr Brightside win.

Caulfield hosted its second The All-Star Mile race in 2024 and was won in an emphatic two-length romp home by Pride Of Jenni.

The All-Star Mile was the only Australian race where members of the public help to choose the final field of horses. Aussie and Kiwi punters originally got to vote on their favourite eligible milers, selecting 10 of the 15 runners in The All-Star Mile field.

For the 2024 All-Star Mile however a revamped structure saw eight ‘Win and You’re In’ races taking place offering the winners a guaranteed start in the now 16-horse field.

The other positions in the weight-for-age were filled by Wildcard horses chosen by a panel of Racing Victoria (RV) and Melbourne Racing Club (MRC) experts.

The All-Star Mile does not hold Black-Type status but there is scope for the race to become a Group event.

The race also now runs two weeks before the Group 1 $3 million Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington with close to $7 million in total prize money offered across the weight-for-age double.

The All-Star Mile 2024 ran at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday March 16, 2024 offering a reduced $3.75 million in total prize money with the Ciaron Maher-trained Pride Of Jenni ($3.80) far too speedy and strong running away with a two length victory over last year’s champ Mr Brightside. 

2024 All Star Mile Results

The official The All-Star Mile 2024 Results & Finishing Order will be available for punters right here once the special conditions feature takes place on Saturday March 16, 2024.

  • 1st: #12 Pride Of Jenni
  • 2nd: #1 Mr Brightside
  • 3rd: #2 Cascadian

In a stunning upset, Ciaron Maher’s mare Pride Of Jenni ($3.80) outclassed the field to win the 2024 All-Star Mile at Caulfield Racecourse. The pre-race favourite, Mr Brightside ($2), fell short of becoming the first ever two-time winner of the prestigious race, finishing a distant second. Pride Of Jenni dominated the race from the front, setting a blistering pace that proved too much for her rivals. Last year’s runner-up, Cascadian, came in a respectable third, showcasing his consistency in the All-Star Mile.

All-Star Mile Betting

Betting on The All-Star Mile was hugely popular for the first edition of the race in 2019 with the public getting to not only vote for their favourite horses to run, but also back them to salute!

The All-Star Mile betting on the confirmed runners is led by proven milers with good lead-up form in earlier autumn features including any three-year-olds out of the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) held at Flemington a fortnight prior.

In 2019 the filly Mystic Journey became the first The All-Star Mile winner and completed the Australian Guineas – The All Star Mile double.

Another top lead-up race in the autumn that impacts The All-Star Mile betting is the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) held at Caulfield Racecourse in late February, which the mare Alizee won in 2018 before her third in The All-Star Mile results.

In 2023 Mr Brightside improved on a lead-up second in the Futurity Stakes – run that year at Sandown – the win the race.

Mr Brightside won the CF Orr – Futurity Stakes double in 2024 but failed to defend his All-Star Mile title when runner-up to star mare Pride Of Jenni as the beaten favourite.

Pride Of Jenni meanwhile improved on a second in the CF Orr Stakes in 2024 before her two length victory in the All-Star Mile race at Caulfield that autumn.

In 2022 Zaaki ($2.40) became the first and to date only The All-Star Mile favourite to salute for the punters.

All-Star Mile Field

As of 2024 the All-Star Mile field will feature an expanded 16 runners. Up to eight of those will come via the updated ‘Win and You’re In’ events that start in November of 2023 with the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.

The remainder of the 2024 The All-Star Mile final field will be wildcards selected by a RV and MRC panel.

The All-Star Mile race field was previously in part selected by the Australian public with racing fans getting the opportunity to help pick 10 of the 15 starters in the final field.

The inaugural All-Star Mile field in 2019 featured a capacity of 14 runners, expanded to 15 starters for the second edition in 2020.

The All-Star Mile Form Guide

The All-Star Mile form guide provides race fans with all the key information on the 16 horses that make the official field for the multi-million dollar mile event.

The confirmed The All-Star Mile jockeys, barrier draw, runner statistics and track information can all be found in the form guide along with an early betting preview.

One form fact that did emerge from the inaugural race was that the Futurity Stakes makes for an excellent form line to follow into The All-Star Mile with both Hartnell (2nd) and Alizee (3rd) finishing in the money behind Mystic Journey after lead-up runs in the Futurity Stakes trifecta.

The 2023 All-Star Mile winner meanwhile ran a lead-up second in the Futurity Stakes with the winner, Alligator Blood, running fourth as the beaten favourite.

The 2022 All-Star Mile winner Zaaki franked the form finishing top three in a host of Group 1 races including the Doomben Cup (3rd), Underwood Stakes (3rd) and Caulfield Stakes (3rd). Zaaki was fourth in that year’s Cox Plate and then went back-to-back during the Melbourne Cup Carnival winning the Group1 1 VRC Champions Stakes (2000m) for the second time at Flemington.

I’m Thunderstruck was runner-up in the 2022 All-Star Mile and further franked the form finishing second next-up in Sydney’s Group 1 Doncaster Mile. I’m Thunderstruck returned that spring and won the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes, also over the mile, and was runner-up in the Caulfield Stakes and Cox Plate results.

The 2023 All-Star Mile form was firmly franked by Mr Brightside, who improved on his fourth in the race the year before, who went on to salute in his next four starts including victories in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile, Group 1 Memsie Stakes and Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes. Following the Makybe Diva win Mr Brightside then placed second in the Group 1 King Charles III Stakes, Group 1 Cox Plate, and Group 1 Champions Mile that spring in a huge campaign.

The All-Star Mile Bet Types

Win – The most basic type of bet. Put your money straight up on the runner that you think will win The All-Star Mile.

Place – Pick the horse that you think will finish in the top three positions but at lower odds.

Each-Way – Put equal amounts on a horse for the win and a place, the equivalent of two bets and you get paid out for both if it wins.

Quinella – Bet on the horses you think will finish first and second in either order. You can also pick for example one horse to finish 1st and then a combination The fewer horses you pick the greater the dividend.

Exacta – An exacta also involves choosing horses that you think will finish first and second but it differs from a quinella in that it has to be the exact order you specify in the bet.

Trifecta – Very similar to an Exacta, but for the first, second and third placings in the correct finishing order. You can also Box Trifecta to finish in any of the first 3 combinations.

First Four – A First Four bet works the same as an Exacta and Trifecta but for the first four runners in finishing order.
