The Zipping Classic, registered as the Sandown Classic, is a Melbourne Racing Club Group 2 Thoroughbred horse race held under weight for age conditions over a distance of 2400 metres run at Sandown Racecourse, Melbourne, Australia in mid November.[1] Prize money is A$300,000.

History[edit]

The event was initially held by the Williamstown Racing Club at the Williamstown Racecourse.[2] After the racecourse grandstand burned to the ground in 1947 the racing club amalgamated with the privately owned Victorian Trotting and Racing Association to become the Melbourne Racing Club and moved the event to Sandown Racecourse.[3] In 1963 the racing club merged in the Victoria Amateur Turf Club and the club changed the name of the event.[2][3]

Prior to 1999 the conditions of the race were an open handicap.

The current race name is named after Zipping, winner of the event four consecutive times between 2007–2010.
