From Adelaide's CBD, Morphettville Racecourse is located 10km away, in the direction of the Southern Ocean, near the seaside suburb of Glenelg. Opened in 1875, Morphettville is Adelaide's only major racetrack, (Oakbank not really considered part of Adelaide), with each Saturday metropolitan meet in Adelaide held at Morphettville.
Despite hosting several Group Ones after the Sydney Autumn Carnival, the highlight on the Morphettville racing calendar is the Group Two Adelaide Cup over 3200 on the second Monday in March, with South Australians awarded a public holiday to celebrate the occasion.
Of the four Group Ones that usually take place in late April and early May, a standout is the Robert Sangster Stakes, which sometimes goes by sponsor names these days. This is a sprint race for fillies and mares that are three-years-old or older, and always produces an exciting finish. However, it is the the Goodwood that marginally captures the title as the most sought-after sprint race in Adelaide. Also run over 1,200 metres, the Goodwood attracts the males that don't qualify for the Robert Sangster, and has a tendency to throw up a boil-over result. The Australasian Oaks and South Australian Derby round out the Group Ones in Adelaide.
A long track with a winning straight on the shorter end of the scale at 334 metres, Morphettville is typically known for producing good race surfaces that lead to fast racing. While the turns at Morphettville aren't particularly sharp, it is still important for jockeys to find a good position as the final turn into the straight can be deceiving, some horses losing several lengths on their rivals if they come too wide.
