The Group 1 Harrison-Dawson Final (515m) will be run on Thursday night at Sandown Park. Here’s a few things you might not know about this wonderful race.
1. Five of the 11 Harrison-Dawson winners have exited from Box 1, with Vivatar to wear the red vest in the 2020 final.
2. Four favourites have won the race – the shortest-priced being Fernando Bale ($1.04) in 2015. The former champion sprinter also holds the race record (29.14sec).
3. Andrea Dailly (Fernando Bale) and Correy Grenfell (Orson Allen) will both be hoping to become the first trainer to prepare two Harrison-Dawson winners on Thursday night.
