Winners and Past Results for the Robert Sangster Stakes.

Fillies and mares take to the Morphettville Racetrack in April each year during the Adelaide autumn racing carnival in Robert Sangster Stakes.

The 1200 metre Robert Sangster Stakes is among the important weight for age sprint races with quality females looking to add a major Group 1 event to their resume before the following winter and spring carnivals.

Hosted by the South Australian Jockey Club, the Robert Sangster Stakes offers a purse worth $1,000,000. The females- only event is held alongside several other group races including the Group 1 Australasian Oaks, Group 2 Queen Of The South Stakes, Group 3 SA Chairman's Stakes and DC McKay Stakes.

The race attracts a quality field of above average fillies and mares which includes a large number of local sprinters and potential middle distance runners along with a few out of state horses. Over the years, the Robert Sangster Stakes has some of the best fillies and mares etch their name on the trophy, which includes Apple Danish in 1997, Alinghi in 2005 and Miss Andretti in 2008.

Vatican Lass is recorded as the first winner of the Robert Sangster Stakes in 1984, which was then a listed race known as the SAJC Swettenham Stud Stakes. It was soon granted Group 3 status by the club in 1986 and was briefly a Group 2 race in 2004 prior to joining the elite in Group 1. It was also held as the SAJC Sportingbet Classic in 2010.

The Robert Sangster Stakes is dedicated to the Late Robert Sangster, a renowned horse owner and breeder in honour of his contribution to the Australian horse racing industry.
