Cluden Park
Lawrence & Hanson 2yo Classic Race Day

Lawrence & Hanson 2yo Classic Race Day

The biggest contest in North Queensland for two-year-old thoroughbreds has been reimagined as Cluden Park places the emphasis back on the day’s namesake race, the 2YO Classic.

Traditionally Cluden Park’s flagship family fun day, the significance that the race has for the north’s upcoming stars of the track calls for them to have the day for themselves, just as the Townsville Cup does for the tried and proven stayers.

Boasting $100,000 in total prize money, the winner stands to gallop away with $57,500 for connections.  

The Lawrence & Hanson 2YO Classic is the opening day of the 2022 Winter Racing Carnival.
