Winners and Past Results for the Birthday Card Stakes

Birthday Card Stakes

The Birthday Card Stakes is an Australian Turf Club Group 3 Australian handicap horse race for fillies and mares aged three years old and upwards.

The race is contested over a distance of 1200 metres and is held annually at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney in March.

Prize money for the Birthday Card Stakes is worth $125,000.

The Birthday Card Stakes began in 1986 as a Listed race run over 1280 metres under the name Birthday Card Quality Handicap. In 1992 the race had a change of name and was known as the Clyde Kennedy Quality.

Two years later the distance was again changed to 1200 metres, and the original name was reinstated.

Still a Listed race at this stage, in 2000 the name as it is now known by the Birthday Card Stakes was registered. The name went back to the Birthday Quality Handicap the following year, until the race was again known as the Birthday Card Stakes in 2001.

The race has been named the 'Cleanevent Stakes' in recent years and takes place on Group 1 Rosehill Guineas day. The race reached Group 3 status in 2006.

2014 Birthday Card Stakes

Avoid Lightning started well and was part of the leading group while Plucky Belle settled at the rear of the field. There were plenty of chances as the field came towards the turn, with Avoid Lightning finishing strongly down the outside and Aerobatics also coming into the picture, plus Plucky Belle looking for a big finish down the inside. Avoid Lightning went to the lead while Plucky Belle, who seemed to be held up at crucial stages in the straight, tried everything to catch her. Plucky Belle dived on the line but Avoid Lightning won in a photo finish, with Aerobatics running on for third.
