The Waikato Sprint is a Thoroughbred horse race run at Te Rapa Racecourse in Hamilton in early February every year. Currently sponsored by Waikato Draught, the race has become one of the highlights of the New Zealand summer racing season.
The list of winners includes almost every top-class sprinter-miler to have raced in New Zealand in the last three decades, and is highlighted by the back-to-back victories by champion mare Sunline in 2001-02.
