Phil Davis Memorial

This race is named in honour of the late Phil Davis who was the Richmond Veterinary Surgeon at their race meetings for many, many years.  

Phil was held in high regard by both trainers and officials, and the Richmond Race Club, and more than a decade ago the club announced it would hold a race annually in honour of Phil's memory.

Because of their affinity with Phil, the event is one which local trainers strive to win, and in 2019 it was a local, John Finn, winning the race with Khatanga Port.
