FORM 700 Chariots Of Fire

The Form 700 Chariots Of Fire is one of the biggest events on the Club Menangle racing calendar each year – proudly being runner-up to the $750,000 SEW Eurodrive Miracle Mile and the $750,000 TAB.COM.AU Inter Dominion.

Like the Miracle Mile, the Chariots Of Fire is of important significance to the Australasian calendar being the richest four-year-old race worth $200,000 in prizemoney.

First run in 1995, the Chariots Of Fire has grown vastly in the pursuing years and is a race that has been contested by a number of horses that have continued to become Grand Circuit stars.
