More Details About The Tancred Stakes
The 2400 metre race is hosted by the Australian Turf Club at the Rosehill Racetrack in Sydney in April during the autumn racing carnival.
The best stayers and long distance runners compete for prize money worth $1,500,000 on a day that also includes the Golden Slipper Stakes, George Ryder Stakes and Queen of the Turf Stakes, giving punters a great opportunity to spread their wagers and make up for any losses early in the year. The Tancred Stakes attracts a quality field with a few New Zealand stayers making their way to the Rosehill track as well. It is the richest weight for age race during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.
One of the reasonable form guides is the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes. The weight for age race held over 2000 metres on the same track has produced a few winners. Tie The Knot in 2000, Eremein in 2006, and Tuesday Joy in 2008 have all scored in both events in recent times although there were a few more in earlier times. There has been no dearth of classy stayers to blaze the track in the Tancred Stakes. Kingston Town won the first Group 1 Tancred Stakes in 1980. Poetic Prince won convincingly in 1989 while Octagonal scored back to back victories in 1996-97. Might And Power came through with flying colours in 1998 while Tie The Knot came back twice in a row in 1999-2000. Ethereal in 2002 and the invincible Makybe Diva in 2005 are among the outstanding mares to win the Tancred Stakes.
The Tancred Stakes was first held in 1963 as a principal race and was later promoted directly to Group 1 in 1980. The race has been held under different names over the years, which includes the the Tancred Stakes and Mercedes Classic. Interestingly, The Tancred Stakes has been won by three-year-olds only six times in the last two decades. Four year olds have 10 tittles to their credit. Among the Melbourne Cup winners to also win the Tancred Stakes are Might And Power in 1998, Ethereal in 2002, and Makybe Diva in 2005.
Tancred Stakes 2022 Details, Result and Recap
The 2022 Tancred Stakes were won by Duais, an Edwards Cummings trained horse who was ridden to victory by Joshua Parr. Duais won the Tancred Stakes in 2022 when defeating Stockman and the Chosen One in the 2400m contest which was run at Newcastle Racecourse.
Lead Up To The 2022 Tancred Stakes
The 2022 Tancred Stakes were disrupted somewhat by heavy rainfall in Sydney which led to the original 26th March meeting at Rosehill Gardens being suspended and relocated to the Hunter Valley and Newcastle Racecourse where the remaining card was completed on the 28th March 2022.
In the build up to the 2022 Group 1 Tancred Stakes all the interest was around Edward Cummings trained runner Duais and whether the four year old mare could build on her Group 1 Australia Cup victory on the 12th March at Flemington Racecourse.
There was already a high level of interest in the race due the second round of competition between Duais, Think It Over and Spanish Mission who had all clashed two weeks prior in the Australia Cup where the Cummings stable star had come out on top in the 2000m contest.
Furthermore there was the added interest in whether Duais could become only the second mare to win both the Australia Stakes as well as the Tancred Stakes with the double only being completed once previously by three time Melbourne Cup Winner and Australian Horse Racing Hall of Famer Makybe Diva.
The punters seemingly felt that Duais would be able to win the Tancred Stakes in 2022 and complete the famous double that had only been completed once before. From an opening mark of $3.50 at the start of the week Duais was crunched to a staggering $2.40 when winning the Group 1.

2022 Tancred Stakes Race Recap
The 2022 Tancred Stakes had already been turned on it’s head when racing was abandoned on Saturday at Rosehill Gardens after just three races because of safety concerns of the heavy track. Continuous rain had deemed the track unworkable and therefore the remaining races were moved to the Monday and to be raced at Newcastle Racecourse in the Hunter Valley.
Before the jump of the rearranged 2022 Tancred Stakes racing fans had latched onto the short priced favourite Duais backing her from a $3 mark on the weekend into $2.40 at the jump. Despite the flood of money Peter Moody trained Spanish Mission held firm as $4.40 second favourite with Think It Over solid as well at $6.
At the start of the race the field jumped away from the barriers with ease and in an even line with Angel Of Truth taking up the early running in the 2022 Tancred Stakes. She was soon joined by Spanish Mission who had to travel forward from the wide gate to tuck in.
Duais at this stage under the ride of Josh Parr tracked the Tancred Stakes field giving them a couple of lengths and focusing on staying out of trouble at the back of the track. It was only Mightybeel who made any movement before the final bend as he tracked forward after being posted three wide in the race.
At around the 800m mark jockey’s began to make there move as Sam Clipperton took Stockman nearer the front to begin a challenge. With Chris Waller trained Sheraz going with the Joe Pride runner, Parr kept his powder dry at the back of the track.
Entering the home straight Parr took Duais right to the outside to mount a challenge while Spanish Mission and Think It Over got into tricky situations behind runners and unable to find clear running room.
At the 200m mark the race was over though as a contest as Duais cut loose from the field and won the Group 1 Tancred Stakes at a canter following an impressive turn of foot that put pay to any rivals.
