One of Caulfield Racecourse’s premier feature races, the $350,000 Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) is set to take place on Saturday September 18 as part of the action of Sir Rupert Clark Stakes Day.

The 2010 Underwood Stakes, the first Group 1 race at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, presents punters with one of the best Ladbrokes.com.au markets on a weight-for-age showdown leading up to Australia’s most famous weight-for-age event, the $3 million Cox Plate (2040m) on October 23 at Moonee Valley.
