The Galaxy is a Group 1 race for three year olds and up conducted by the Australian Turf Club at Rosehill Gardens.
The Galaxy was first run in 1972 and was won by Playbill.
The Galaxy is run over 1100m under handicap conditions and was run at Randwick until 2013, bar Warwick Farm in 2007. Ever since 2013 it has been at Rosehill.
The mares have turned it around of late. I Am Excited, In Her Time, Griante and Sweet Idea have won recently but the previous female winner of The Galaxy was the filly La Baraka in 1998. Ortensia did lose the race on a positive swab in 2010.
Until 2017, three year olds hadn't won for six years but they have a great record overall with 19 wins, including a streak of 12 wins from 19 runnings from 1992 to 2010.
In 1992, Schillaci won the Lightning Stakes, Oakleigh Plate, Newmarket Hcp, lost the Canterbury Stakes on protest and then won The Galaxy.
The only horses to win with more than 56.5kg are Luskin Star (57), Mr Tiz (58.5), Schillaci (57), Temple Of Boom (57).
Before 2017, the previous seven winners of the race have won at $10 or better. 2020 saw a return to the roughies.
Shellscrape became the winner in 2010 after Ortensia's positive.
Nature Strip would go on in the Spring and substantiate his form with multiple G1 wins.
It was worth $700,000 in 2020.
Notable Winners of The Galaxy include Bletchingly (1975), Luskin Star (1978), Manuan (1985), Snippets (1988), Mr Tiz (1991), Schillaci (1992), Gold Ace (1996), Spark Of Life (2004), Charge Forward (2005), Russian Revolution (2017), In Her Time (2018) and Nature Strip (2019).
The 2020 Galaxy was won by I Am Excited from Miss Leonidas and Tofane.
