Surround Stakes

Winners and Past Results for the Surround Stakes.

The Surround Stakes is a Group 1 race for three year old fillies hosted by the Australian Turf Club. The 1400 M event is held in March at Randwick racecourse in Sydney under set weight conditions.

Sprinters looking to prove their ability over an extended distance and add a black type event to their resume usually find their way to the Surround Stakes. A tidy purse of $200,000 awaits the winners, who are more often than not, better performing fillies who can take advantage of the level weights. The Surround Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes.

The Surround Stakes often has some of the classier gallopers take to the field en route to bigger races during the season at Rosehill and Randwick. Most often, trainers will have a number of big races in mind for fillies that perform well. The Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes is one of the likely lead up events.

The Surround Stakes was first held as a Group 3 race in 1979 and was granted Group 2 status 1986. The race is held in honour of the 1976-1977 Australian Champion Racehorse of the Year, Surround, the only filly in history to win the Cox Plate. An injury to the foreleg as a four year old cut short her racing career which included 17 wins from 28 starts which included major group races such as the VRC Oaks, AJC Oaks, Caulfield Guineas, and Queensland Oaks, to name a few.
