The 2013 Crystal Mile is run under weight-for-age conditions and is open to horses of all ages.

Scheduled as part of Cox Plate Day, the race shares its program with the Group 1 Cox Plate, Group 2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup, Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase, Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes and the Group 3 Terio Stakes.

Last year’s Crystal Mile was taken out by Silent Achiever.

Silent Achiever won the race by almost a length ahead of Rangirangdoo, who finished second, and Solzhenitsyn, who rounded out the placings in third position.

The five-year-old placed fourth in a New Zealand Handicap race prior to her Crystal Mile victory.

She then went on to run fourth in the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes at Flemington Racecourse in her very next race start.

Silent Achiever has won six of her 17 race starts and has earned more than $1.14 million in prize money during her horse racing career.

While she hasn’t won a race since, Silent Achiever finished second in the Group 1 The BMW behind Fiveandahalfstar during the autumn carnival.

She is scheduled to return for the spring carnival and contest the Group 1 Cox Plate on the same day as the 2013 Crystal Mile. are offering a $500 bonus bet to new customers who sign up today and enter the promo code BONUSBET. is your one stop shop for all your betting needs this spring, so ensure you make the most of their premium betting experience.
