Winners and Past Results for the All Aged Stakes.
The All Aged Stakes is definitely amongst the oldest races hosted by the Australian Turf Club.
The $600,000 Group 1 open race is held at the end of April or first week of May at the Randwick Racecourse under weight for age conditions.
Prior to 2004, the All Aged Stakes was run over 1600 meters but is a 1400 meter race since then. The All Aged Stakes is scheduled on Champagne Stakes Day.
The race has produced many champions who have moved on to rewrite the Australian racing history books several times over.
Race goers have witnessed some of the classiest sprinters blaze the track in the All Aged Stakes on the final day of the Sydney autumn racing carnival.
Top quality horses from the 1200 meter Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes held a 2 weeks earlier usually enter the fray, which is a good form guide for punters looking for a maximum wager on the last day of the season.
Among the notable horses to score a TJ Smith / All Aged Stakes double are Shamekha in 2005 and Bentley Biscuit in 2007. A duel between Hot Danish and Melito continued from the TJ Smith to the All Aged Stakes with Melito making amends with a victory in the 2010 All Aged Stakes. Melito ran second in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap that followed and finished the season on a high note with a victory in the Group 1 Winter Stakes at Eagle Farm Racecourse. Hot Danish won the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 later in the year at the Brisbane winter carnival.
The 2011 All Aged Stakes winner, Hay List, ran second in the TJ Smith Stakes the previous week.
Carbine is one of the most outstanding horses to lift the trophy twice in 1889 and 1890 followed by another all time favourite, Ajax , with three titles between 1938 and 1940. Tim Wiffler, Yaralla, Kilshery, Rough Habit, and Sunline are among the other classy gallopers to score a double in this race over the years.
Falcon was the winner of the first All Aged held in 1866.
