Weights & Statistics: Typical of WFA races winners come from all ends of the weight scale. Family of Man won the first running of this race carrying 51kgs and also the 3rd carrying 58.5kgs. Look for genuine WFA performers. In recent years the lighter weighted horses have found success with a number of 3yo's performing very well.
