Winners and Past Results for the Royal Sovereign Stakes.

Hosted by the Australian Turf Club during the autumn racing carnival in April, the Royal Sovereign Stakes is a Group 2 race for three year old colts & geldings under set weight conditions.

Horses travel over a distance of 1200 metres of the Randwick Track in Sydney for a chance to earn prize money worth $600,000.

The set weights plus penalties conditions favours better performing sprinters seeking to move up in group racing during the rest of the year. Other features of the day include the Group 1 Sydney Cup, Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Australian Oaks.

The race has been claimed by a number of top-line gallopers over the years with Shaftesbury Avenue winning in 1990, Danewin in 1995, Assertive Lad in 2001 followed by Lonhro the next year, Exceed And Excel in 2005, and Shoot Out in 2010.

Acamar won the first Royal Sovereign Stakes in 1979. It was elevated to Group 3 in 1981 and has enjoyed its Group 2 status since 1996.
