Keith F Nolan Classic Winners, Past Results & Latest News

Keith F Nolan Stakes run at the Kembla Grange Racecourse. Winners and past results of the Keith F Nolan Classic

Winners and Past Results for the Keith F Nolan Classic.

The Kembla Grange Classic is registered as the Keith F Nolan Classic and is a Group 3 Australian Thoroughbred horse race held annually in March during the Sydney autumn racing carnival at Kembla Grange Racecourse. Keith F Nolan Classic is in honour of the founding Chairman of the Illawarra Turf Club. It has been known as the Kembla Grange Classic since 2015.

It is a 1600 meter event for three year old fillies run under set weights and penalties. The total prize money is worth $200,000 plus trophy. The race is held under the aegis of the Illawarra Turf Club.

The Keith F Nolan Classic was upgraded from a Listed race to Group 3 status in 2010 racing calendar because of its ability to attract above average fillies each year. The event has become more than just a provincial race for three year old fillies. Horses enter the fray even through Group 1 events as well as from the Kewney Stakes in Melbourne, which has made the Keith F Nolan Classic one of the major events held on the Kembla Grange track, which was built almost identical to the Randwick track.

The next race for fillies after the Keith F Nolan Classic is usually the Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes on Golden Slipper Stakes day, which is an ideal launching pad to the Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks at Randwick , a premier filly event of the autumn season. The Keith F Nolan Classic, a mile race, and the Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes over 2000 metres gives fillies a chance to test their staying abilities with an eye on acceptance for the Australian Oaks. With only the best fillies able to handle the increase in distance till the Oaks, this group of races is considered to be one of the toughest series in Australia.

The Keith F Nolan has over the years produced fillies that have gone on to win major races at Randwick, with group winners in Victoria and Queensland as well.
