More Details About The Matron Stakes

Horses travel over a distance of 1600 meters for prize money worth $200,000. Run on one of the biggest days of the Melbourne Autumn Carnival along with the Group 1 $1,000,000 Australian Cup and Newmarket Handicap, the Matron Stakes, usually finds mares tasting success or ones that are just emerging. The race suits the better females entered with no major upset recorded in its history.

The 1400 M Group 3 Mannerism Stakes held at Caulfield Racecourse in February and the 1400 M Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes held by VRC at Flemington Racecourse in March, are usually lead up races to the Matron Stakes. These races are run under the same set weight and penalty conditions with the Matron Stakes an extra 200 meters longer. Pinker Pinker was the first horse to create a double by winning the 1600 M Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes, held at the Caulfield track in February, before winning the Matron Stakes in 2011.

Mares after the Matron Stakes may travel to the Sydney Autumn Carnival and run in races such as the 2600 meter Group 2 AJC Chairman's Handicap held at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney every April.

Notable winners of this race are Translate in 2008 and Ruling Eyes in 2004.

Pinker Pinker in 2011, is one mare to win several Group races after her victory in the Matron Stakes which include the 1400 M Group 2 Let's Elope Stakes at Flemington, the 1600 M Group 1 Epsom Handicap at Randwick and finished the season with a major victory in the WS Cox Plate at Moonee Valley Racecourse.
