Stan Fox Stakes

Winners and Past Results for the Stan Fox Stakes.

The Stan Fox Stakes run during the Sydney spring racing carnival is a set weights race for three year olds run over 1500 metres.

It is hosted by the Australian Turf Club and run at Rosehill Racecourse. This race is often used by trainers to identify stronger gallopers from their stable with an eye on extended mile races during the carnival.

The Stan Fox Stakes is run over 1500 metres and is worth $200,000 to the winners. Set weights favour the better performing horses that may have already upped their pace over the season. The event is held on the second day of the three-day carnival at Randwick with the Epsom Handicap following a week later.

Horses may come via the Group 3 Spring Stakes held at Newcastle or the Group 1 Golden Rose at Rosehill Racecourse. The Stan Fox Stakes attracts a quality field with many outstanding gallopers etching their name on the title, which includes all time greats like Octagonal in 1995 and Lonhro in 2001, to name a few.

The Stan Fox Stakes has been held by the ATC since 1975. It remained a principal race run under 1200 metres until it became a listed race in 1985 with an increase in distance to 1400 metres. Promotion to Group 3 followed in 1989 while its Group 2 status was granted in 1996.

Apart from Octagonal and Lonhro, other notable gallopers to win the Stan Fox Stakes are General Nedeym in 1997, Court Command in 2006 and Decision Time making it to the finishing post by almost a length from Top Drop in 2010.

Punters ought to continue to consider the Golden Rose as a handy form guide while the Stan Fox Stakes is capable of producing a few Caulfield Guineas and Caulfield Cup winners as well.
