The Tramway Quality Hcp is held in September each year at the Randwick Racecourse in Sydney and is one of the most thrilling Group 3 races in the Sydney Spring Carnival. The race is an ideal sprint event run over 1400M and is today worth a remarkable $125,000 in prize money. The event is also run under set weights and is exclusive to three year old and above horses. The Tramway Quality Hcp in its rich history has built a strong identity of excitement, passion and breathtaking horse racing.

The 2013 edition of the race was not any different and outstanding three year old Malavio capped a modest start to the Spring Carnival with a remarkable victory in this event. Bello and Royal Decent both had to settle for second and third respectively. The Tramway Quality Hcp is held on the same day as the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes as well as The Group 2 Furious Stakes and the Group 3 Concorde Stakes. Winners in this event get an exemption from ballot for the Group 1 Epsom Handicap.

The Tramway Quality Hcp might not be one of the biggest races in Australian horse racing but the event always assembles a great field of above average and more than handy Sprinters. A number of remarkable three years olds have won the Tramway Quality Hcp on course towards accomplished status in Australian Horse racing. Sportsman back in 2003, Primus in 2006 and Bank Robber in 2008 are some of the few elite horses to emerge from the Tramway Quality Hcp.

The race is always a great build up for the Group 1 Epsom Handicap and The Group 1 George Main Stakes. In 2011, Sincero won the Tramway Quality Hcp and the George Main Stakes Double while Admirer finished second in the 2011 Tramway Quality Hcp race on course towards victory in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap. The Tramway Quality Hcp is never short of great runners and should be a great race for horse racing fans in the 2014 Spring Carnival.
