Winners and Past Results for the Mannerism Stakes.
Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne holds some of the biggest and most anticipated horse racing events on its tracks that attracts punters from all over.
One of black type races held during the autumn racing carnival in February is the Mannerism Stakes. Bookies and horse racing enthusiasts would like to begin the year on a positive note and make money on the contenders in the Mannerism Stakes.
The Group 3 race is for mares four years old and over who travel a distance of 1400 metres under set weight plus penalty conditions. The event is hosted by Melbourne Racing Club with prize money worth $150,000 going to the fastest mare on the day.
The Mannerism Stakes is scheduled on Blue Diamond Stakes day, which is a premier race day, along with other major Group 1 races like the Futurity Stakes and Oakleigh Plate as well. The race attracts a fine class of mares with set weight & penalties favouring the better performing types.
However, picking a winner can often be difficult due to the strong field. Mares that have a good outing in the Mannerism Stakes may fancy their chances in the Gr3 Frances Tressady Stakes for mares only, which is held alongside the Group 1 Australian Guineas. They may also head to Flemington on Super Saturday for a chance at the Group 3 Matron Stakes, a mares only race held on the same day as the Group 1 Australian Cup.
The Mannerism Stakes was first held in 1988 as a Listed Race with Even True recorded as the first winner. It was elevated to Group 3 in 1993 and has remained so since then. Between 1988 and 1992 it was known as the VATC Fashion Stakes. Among the notable mares to win the Mannerism Stakes include Memphis Blue in 1990, Tolando in 1996, Typhoon Billie in 2001, Galapagos Girl in 2003, and Seachange in 2007. Tootsie in 2010 and Red Flair, the 2011 Mannerism Stakes winner also recorded stellar victories against some of the toughest opponents on the Caulfield track.
The Group 2 Matriarch Stakes, Tristarc Stakes and the Group 3 Hyderabad Stakes are among the races from where top performing mares may enter the Mannerism Stakes, and are usually a reasonable form guide before the event. In 2011, Red Flair won the listed 1200 M Nissan Hareeba Stakes at Mornington prior to winning here.
