Winners & Past Results for the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes

The Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes is an open race for weight for age contenders hosted by the Moonee Valley Racing Club during the spring racing carnival in Melbourne in September.

The 1600 meter event at the tight Moonee Valley Track offers prize money worth $250,000.

The race is known to produce WS Cox Plate, Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup place getters and winners over the years and serves as a handy form guide for race goers. The pivotal spring race is held in honour of the owner of some of the country's best race horses and takes place on the same day as the Group 2 WH Stocks Stakes. Another feature of the day is the Group 3 Ian McEwen Stakes.

The winners list over the years virtually includes the best names in Australian thoroughbred racing history which includes Fields of Omagh, winner of the 2002 title and two WS Cox Plates in 2003 and 2006. Winner in 2001, Northerly also won the Cox Plate in 2001 and 2002 along with the 2002 Caulfield Cup.

The world's highest earning mare of her time, Sunline, won the 2000 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes and the 1999 and 2000 WS Cox Plate, which is a clear indicator of the significance and quality of this event.

The invincible Makybe Diva was runner up in the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes in 2004 and 2005 in addition to her three Melbourne Cup wins.

Other formidable champions to win include Lad Of The Manor with back to back wins in 2005-06 who got the better of Makybe Diva and Apache Cat respectively. Whobegotyou also won two titles in 2009-10 while Lawman achieved the feat earlier in 1981-82. Shorengro came back thrice to lift the title between1968-70.

Other topliners to win the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes include Rubiton in 1987, Better Loosen Up in 1990, Mannerism in 1991, Naturalism in 1992, Aerosmith in 1998, and Delzao in 2004.

Horses that place well in the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes may fancy an outing in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes and Yalumba Stakes. 2009 winner, Whobegotyou, was runner up in the Underwood Stakes and continued his form to win the Yalumba Stakes.

In 2010, the gelding repeated his fine form in the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes and Yalumba Stakes once again. El Segundo, winner in 2007 also won the WS Cox Plate later during the spring carnival.
