Winners and Past Results for the Champagne Stakes

Champagne Stakes

Hosted by the Australian Turf Club towards the end of April during the autumn racing carnival in Sydney, the ATC Champagne Stakes is an open race for two year old horses held at the Randwick Racecourse in Sydney.

The 1600 meter event is run at set weight conditions on the same day the ATC Group 1 All Aged Stakes. Top class two year old milers compete for prize money worth $400,000.

The Sires Produce Stakes held earlier in the carnival is a warm up race for more than handy sprinters on the same track.

Several top class sprinters have won the Sires Produce and Champagne Stakes double over the last decade. Assertive Lad, Viscount, Victory Vein, Hasna and Dance Hero achieved the feat between 2000 and 2004, followed by Helmet in 2011. Third placed in 2009, Manhattan Rain ran an impressive second in the Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in spring.

The Champagne Stakes began as a principal race way back in 1864 and was elevated to Group 1 in 1980. Notable milers to win the Stakes in recent times include Assertive Lad in 2000, Dance Hero in 2004, Samantha Miss in 2008, Skilled in 2010, and Helmet in 2011. Set weight conditions of 56.5 kilograms for colts and geldings and 56.5 kilograms for fillies suit the more than handy crop of milers. Top two year old horses to crack the mile may also move on to the Group 1 VRC Crown Oaks and the Cox Plate. Winner in 2008, Samantha Miss, placed well in the Cox Plate and later won the Crown Oaks.

Although the race had changed distances several times it has remained a 1600 meter race since 1972.

Among the outstanding gallopers to win the Champagne Stakes earlier on are Ajax in 1937, Todman in 1957, Storm Queen in 1966, Baguette in 1970, and Red Anchor in 1984. The top two year olds to win the trip crown include Baguette and Luskin Star in 1970 and 1977 respectively. Tierce, and Burst repeated the feat in 1991 and 1992, while Dance Hero was the last to take home all three prizes in 2004.

Among the most successful trainers is Bart Cummings with four Champagne Stakes to his credit.

2014 AJC Champagne Stakes

After an even start, Unknown Destiny took the lead ahead of Zululand, with Kumaon in fourth place and Go Indy Go being patiently ridden towards the back of the field. Unknown Destiny led to the straight before fading, allowing Zululand to go to the front with Kumaon getting an inside run and joining the leader. These two looked to set to battle it out before Go Indy Go, still fresh after a relaxed run, started to unwind right down the outside and she had too much momentum for the others to handle. Go Indy Go won by a length over Zululand, with Kumaon not far back in third.
