The Lightning Stakes is a great 1000m sprint, raced each year at Flemington in Melbourne during the Autumn Carnival. The Coolmore Lightning Stakes is a WFA group 1 race that has in recent times been won by horses such as Miss Andretti, Apache cat and takeover Target. There is nothing quite like a sprint race up the straight at Flemington!
