The 2016 Global Sprint Challenge (GSC) is the world's premier sprint series, encompassing 10 Group 1 races across five of the world's foremost thoroughbred jurisdictions offering a US$1 million bonus. First introduced in 2005, the GSC includes races in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom, the GSC has its finale in Hong Kong in December when the G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Sprint provides a thrilling climax to the annual series.

To be eligible for the US$1 million bonus in 2016, a horse must win a GSC race in three different countries which one win can be in the country where the horse is trained. The bonus will be split 75% to the owners and 25% to the trainer, with the pool split equally if more than one horse achieves the feat.

The 2016 Global Sprint Challenge launches on 20 February with the Black Caviar Lightning at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne.
