Weatherbys Super Sprint
The Weatherbys Super Sprint is a flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Newbury over a distance of 5 furlongs and 34 yards (1,037 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in July.
The event was established in 1991, and it was initially called the "Newbury Sales Super Sprint Trophy". Its title has been altered several times, and it has included the name of Weatherbys since 1993. It is presently restricted to horses sold as yearlings by public auction for 48,000 guineas or less. The weights carried are determined by the sale price of the horses, with one pound deducted for each 3,000 guineas below 48,000. The minimum weight is 7st 12lb.
