The Canterbury Stakes, a Group 1 race held at the Randwick Racecourse in Sydney on the same day as Group 1 Randwick Guineas.

Horses run 1300 metres to compete for prize money worth $500,000 and prove their ability to handle weight for age conditions. The other plus point for the winner is a ballot exemption in the George Ryder Stakes. The race attracts an above average field of gallopers with some of the biggest names passing through the Canterbury Stakes.

The Group 1 George Ryder Stakes held on Rosehill Guineas day serves as a warm up for some of the horses leading up to the Canterbury Stakes. 

Horses first took to the track in the Canterbury Stakes in 1929. Held as a principal race, a horse named Amounis is recorded as the first winner. Holdfast literally held on to the trophy for the next three years from 1930-32. San Domenico was the next to pick up two titles in 1950-51 followed by At Sea in 1988-89. The race was awarded Group 2 status in 1979.

Among the outstanding sprinters to win the Canterbury Stakes include Manikato in 1982, Miss Kariba in 1995, Shogun Lodge in 2001, Dance Hero in 2005, and Hot Danish in 2010. Love Conquers All, second in 2011, ran a spirited race in the Doomben 10000 losing only by a nose to Beaded. He also finished as runner up in the George Ryder Stakes and the $2 million Doncaster Handicap at Randwick Racecourse as well.
