George Ryder Stakes

Winners and Past Results for the George Ryder Stakes

George Ryder Stakes

Australian Turf Club hosts the George Ryder Stakes, which is a Group 1 race for 3 year old horses and upwards.

The event is held annually at Rosehill Racecourse, Sydney, New South Wales and is run under weight for age conditions.

The race suits stronger sprinters and middle distance runners that travel over 1500 metres for prize money worth $1,000,000.

The classic sprint race is held during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival a week before the Golden Slipper Day which is the biggest day observed by the Club.

Other races which are organized on the same day are the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas and Group 1 The Galaxy leaving punters with a large spread and the hopes of making up on any losses.

The winner is exempt from ballot for the prestigious Doncaster Handicap. In 2011, rank outsider Rangirangdoo caused a major upset with front runner Love Conquers All relegated to second place, followed by Triple Elegance.

The George Ryder Stakes was held for the first time in 1903 over a distance of 6 furlongs. It was then a Principal Race and remained so till 1979. Due to a number of top performers entering the fray, the George Ryder Stakes was awarded Group 1 status in 1980. The distance has also been increased gradually over the years and has been a 15000 metre race since 1986. Manikato in 1980 became the first George Ryder Stakes winner to reach the winning post in a record time of 1:21.6.

The George Ryder Stakes has witnessed some of the finest sprinters and milers score remarkable victories on the Rosehill track.

The Group 2 Canterbury Stakes usually serves as a form guide for the George Ryder Stakes. Gallopers that perform well in this event may also tackle other races like the Group 1 AJC Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Group 1 All Aged Stakes and the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap.

Grand Armee, runner up in 2003, was victorious in the Doncaster Handicap. Racing To Win in 2006, Haradasun in 2007, and Vision And Power in 2009 scored a George Ryder Stakes/Doncaster Handicap double.

Among the brilliant horses to win the George Ryder Stakes include Schillaci in 1993, Lonhro with back to back victories in 2003-04, and Emancipation, earlier in 1983-84. 2011 winner Rangirangdoo ran fourth in the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes prior to winning the event.

2014 George Ryder Stakes

El Roca raced into the early lead, with Irish galloper Gordon Lord Byron just worse than midfield and Speediness on the rail and towards the rear of the field. El Roca went along bravely, with the three year old showing plenty of zip as they came into the home turn, but on the inside Speediness and gradually improved and set out after El Roca, with Gordon Lord Byron also making ground on the inside. Speediness took the lead from El Roca and looked set to win but Gordon Lord Byron, with a last gasp effort on the rail, got there right on the line. El Roca took third after a game race.
