Carbine Club Stakes

Winners and Past Results for the Carbine Club Stakes.

Among the Group 3 races hosted by the Victoria Racing Club during the Melbourne spring racing carnival in October is the Carbine Club Stakes. The race is for three year old horses and run under set weight plus penalty conditions.

In the Carbine Club Stakes, horses travel 1600 metres of the Flemington Racecourse in a bid to take home a slice of the $200,000 in prize money.

The race is held on the first day of Melbourne's four-day carnival which includes major Group 1 races including the AAMI Victoria Derby. The Group 1 Myer Classic, Coolmore Stud Stakes, and MacKinnon Stakes are also scheduled on the day's card. The race is usually the opening event on Victoria Derby day.

The Carbine Club Stakes may include a few horses stepping up in distance to prove their ability to conquer the mile. The handy types may move on to tackle Group 2 races later during the spring carnival which includes the Sandown Guineas while top performers may fancy their chances in the Group 1 SA Derby held later in autumn at Morphettville Racecourse. Some horses may be juveniles who just turned three and may come in via a number of listed races. Top performers may also tackle the Group 1 Emirates Stakes a fortnight later at Flemington over the same distance.

Wage Freeze won the first Carbine Club Stakes as a listed race in 1983 while Toy Carousel was recorded as the first winner as a Group 3 race in 1998. Saintly in 1995, Delago Brom in 2002, and Al Maher in 2004 are among the notable gallopers to take home the Carbine Club Stakes.
