Open to horses aged four years and older, The Heath 1100 pays a respectable total purse of $150,000. Horses compete under set weights plus penalties conditions.

The Heath 1100 is held on Memsie Stakes Day and shares the race program with four other black type events. These are the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m), Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m), Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) and listed Slickpix Stakes (1700m).

Usually held around the end of August, The Heath plays an important role as a lead-up race to the remainder of the Melbourne Spring Carnival. Many horses use The Heath as the ideal sprinting test against better opponents as they attempt to gauge what they should target for the remainder of the season. Many horses who intend on targeting The Heath will also aim for Aurie’s Star Handicap, held a couple of weeks before at Flemington Racecourse.

Those horses that perform strongly in The Heath might go on to race in the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m).

Over the years, The Heath has been known by a wide variety of names. Some of these include the Clamms Seafood Stakes, the Martha Cove Classic, the Thomas North Handicap, the Australian Museum Racing Plate and the Stakes. Originally an unlisted race, in 2005 The Heath was made a listed event. This was followed in 2013 by an upgrade to Group 3. The Heath has always been held at Caulfield Racecourse, and it’s name is a reference to the local nickname for the track, which in its early days was covered in heath.

Notable The Heath winners include Crystal Finale (2002), Monahan Tweed (2004) and First Command (2009).
