Chipping Norton Stakes

Winners and Past Results for the Chipping Norton Stakes

Chipping Norton Stakes

The Australian Turf Club hosts the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes at the Warwick Farm Racecourse in Sydney during the autumn racing carnival early in March. 

The mile event is run under weight for age conditions open to all horses with $500,000 going to the winners.

Often, the ATC hold the race at Randwick Racecourse if the condition of the track at Warwick Farm is unfavorable.

Many of the strongest gallopers have won the Chipping Norton Stakes on their way to greater glory. Champion stayer, Tie The Knot, winner of the 1999 edition of the Stakes and thirteen Group 1 races in 1999 alone, won four Chipping Norton Stakes in a row between 1999 and 2002.

The race is held along with the Group 2 Surround Stakes. Other major group race of the day is the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup.

Many of the strongest milers have made their way to the Chipping Norton Stakes via the Group 2 Apollo Stakes.

Some of the notable gallopers in this race have the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes on their agenda in their next outing with Tie The Knot in 2000 and 2001, Grand Armee in 2005, and Theseo in 2010 managing Chipping Norton/Ranvet Stakes double.

Other outstanding gallopers to win include Super Impose in 1991-92, Octagonal in 1997, and Lonhro in 2003. Katanga and Carbon Copy were early back to back winners while Bernborough added the Chipping Norton to his tally of 26 wins.

The mighty Phar Lap also added the title to his credit in 1930 while Tulloch and Rain Lover have also been the outstanding milers to win in 1960 and 1962 respectively.

The Chipping Norton Stakes, first run in 1925 remained a principal race until 1979 when it achieved Group 2 status.

The race attracted a strong line up of gallopers over the years, ultimately making it a Group 1 event in 1986.

For racegoers, the Chipping Norton Stakes ought to be a major form guide for the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap and Sydney Cup.

Winners are exempt from ballot for entry into both these hotly contested Group 1 races.

2014 Chipping Norton Stakes

Several horses vied for the early lead before Order Of The Sun settled as the frontrunner, while the highly fancied It's A Dundeel and Boban settled further back. Order Of The Sun continued to lead the way, with Moriarty and Hawkspur coming into the picture too, but all eyes were on It's A Dundeel as it made a move forward approaching the turn, with Boban working hard to stay close. It's A Dundeel went to the lead in the straight but Boban was ready to strike, and with an edge in fitness, he got to the lead to claim the win. Hawkspur went a handy race in finishing in third place.
