Winners and Past Results for the AJ Moir Stakes

The AJ Moir Stakes is a Moonee Valley Racing Club Group 1 Australian horse race for horses aged three years old and over under weight for age conditions.

The race has recently been known as The Schweppes Stakes and was elevated from a Group 2 to a Group 1 race for the 2013 /2014 season.

Every year Mooney Valley Racing Club plays host to the AJ Moir Stakes. The weight for age race has some of the best sprinters stamp their authority on the tracks over a distance of 1200 M.

Held during the Spring Racing Carnival in September at the Moonee Valley Racecourse, the AJ Moir Stakes carries prize money worth $450,000 and a $5,000 trophy.

Over the years, the AJ Moir Stakes has had some of the best sprinters in history pick up the trophy. With Me scored a double in 1990 and 91 as well. Other horses that were comfortable on the tight Moonee Valley race track include Schillaci in 1992, Falvelon in 2002, Apache Cat in 2009, and Black Caviar in 2010.

AJ Moir Stakes was held in 1976 in which it was a principal race won by Scamanda over 1000 metres. The race was previously run on the Group 1 WS Cox Plate day in October, but was moved to September for the 2012 / 2013 season to allow for the Group 1 Manikato Stakes to be run on Friday, eve of the Cox Plate.

The AJ Moir Stakes was upgraded to Group 2 in 1979 where punters witnessed an exciting duel between The Judge and Grey Sapphire, which ended in a dead heat.

Black Caviar who won the AJ Moir Stakes in 2010 by 5 ½ lengths, continued her winning streak at Flemington in the Patinack on Emirates Day, and became the world champion sprinter.

One of the best sprinters to win the AJ Moir Stakes was Manikato, a champion thoroughbred Australian race horse that won many stakes and Group 1 races. The gelding was only second to Kingston Town to win $1 million in stakes.

The large purse attracts a fine crop of sprinters and their trainers who often move on to bigger wins in the following seasons. Horses to make a Group 2 Schillaci / AJ Moir Stakes double include Show No Emotion, Magic Music, Falvelon, Mistegic, and Spinning Hill, all between 1998 and 2002, followed by Black Caviar in 2010.

Punters witnessed a dead heat between Clay Hero and Good Old Ted at the 1989 edition of the stakes.
