Winners and Past Results for the Kindergarten Stakes

Kindergarten Stakes

Hosted by the Australian Turf Club, the Kindergarten Stakes is a Group 3 race for two year old horses run under set weight conditions.

The event is held during the annual Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival in April with prize money worth $200,000 awaiting the winners.

The 1100 metre race is suited for sprinters who may not yet have the ability to last over longer, 1200 meter events.

It is one of Sydney's younger races held since 1989. It began as a listed race and was granted Group 3 status in 1997.

Horses who may have run well in the $3.5 Million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes the week earlier at Rosehill Racecourse may further contest in this event.

Races like the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes for fillies and the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes for colts held earlier in the carnival are usually the lead up events to the Kindergarten Stakes. Though both the races are 100 meters longer than the Kindergarten stakes, they are perfect for horses to condition themselves for the Kindergarten Stakes.

Several Kindergarten Stakes winners have gone on to achieve success in multiple group races. Wanted, the 2009 winner went on to win the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap the following year, which is Flemington's premier autumn sprint race. The 2010 Kindergarten Stakes winner, Solar Charged, won the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes at Caulfield later that year. 2011 winner Anise ran fourth in the 1200 M Group 2 Reisling Stakes on her way to the Kindergarten Stakes.
