Hill Stakes

Hill Stakes

Winners and Past Results for the Hill Stakes.

The mighty Phar Lap, Peter Pan, Gunsynd, Bernborough, and later, Super Impose have all stamped their authority on the Group 2 Hill Stakes, a 2000 metre Group 2 race held at Randwick Racecourse during the spring racing carnival in Sydney in September.

The weight for age race is for horses three years old and above with $500,000 in prize money offered by the Australian Turf Club.

The Group 1 George Main Stakes, Group 2 The Shorts, and Group 3 Bill Ritchie Handicap are also on the day's race card, leaving punters with an opportunity to square their positions. Level weights in the race favours more than handy types with a number of champion milers proving their ability to stay the distance.

The Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes held earlier during the season may prove to be a handy form guide for the Hill Stakes. Winners and place getters in the 1600 M Chelmsford Stakes are known to perform well in the Hill Stakes.

2011 winner, Trusting, scored a Chelmsford Stakes/Hill Stakes double. Earlier in 2009, Miss Marielle was runner up in event prior to tasting victory in the Hill Stakes. Top performers may also fancy their chances in the Group 3 Craven Plate with Miss Marielle travelling the extended distance of 2000 metres ahead of her rivals in the 2009 Craven Plate at the Randwick track on Epsom Handicap day.

Top gallopers may move on to try their luck in the Group 1 Metropolitan Handicap over 2400 metres on the Randwick track in October. Trusting finished seventh in The Metropolitan in 2011 while runner up in the Hill Stakes, Hawks Island finished a close second in both the events. Placed third in the 2011 Hill Stakes, Tullamore went on to tackle the Group 1 Caulfield Cup, finishing third once again and followed it up with a second spot in the 2500 M Group 2 Drake International Cup at the Moonee Valley track.

Between 1921 and 1978, the Hill Stakes was a principal race. The race continued to attract a quality field over the years and was granted Group 2 status in 1979. Several horses have scored back to back victories over the years which include Limerick, Phar Lap, Chatham, Gold Rod, Yaralla, and Redcraze, to name a few.

2010 Hill Stakes winner, Descardo, also won the Caulfield Cup and was runner up in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington over 2000 metres.
