Winners and Past Results for the ATC Sires Produce Stakes
The ATC Sires Produce Stakes is an Australian Turf Club Group 1 Australian horse race for two year olds run at set weights.
The ATC Sires Produce Stakes held at the Randwick Racecourse in Sydney is run over 1400 meters.
The race, hosted by the Australian Turf Club is on a day when racing is at its peak with the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby, TJ Smith Stakes and the Doncaster Handicap among the major events on the same day. With $1,000,000 in prize money up for grabs, the race attracts the finest crop of 2 year olds just beginning their racing career and their first hope for glory in races over 1200 meters.
The race attracts a strong field with many contesting right after the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes held a fortnight before at Rosehill Racecourse. Those who run strongly in the Slipper are likely to put up a great contest at the ATC Sires Produce Stakes.
Originally a principal race, the first race was held in 1867 with Glencoe recorded as the first winner. In 1980, the event was elevated to Group 1 status, which was won by Shaybisc. The race distance changed over the years but has remained a 1400 meter race since 1973.
Among the early gallopers to win the ATC Sires Produce Stakes are Ajax in 1937, Tulloch in 1957, Wenona in 1960, St. Covet in 1994, and Octagonal in 1995.
Second in the AJC Sires Produce Stakes, Meurice and Samantha Miss went on to win the Champagne Stakes in 2007 and 2008 respectively. Onemorenomore, placed fourth in 2009, improved on his form to win the Champagne Stakes, followed by Tickets who ran second in both races.

Horses from the ATC Sires Produce Stakes also move on to the Group 1 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield and the Robert Sangster Stakes.
