The Vanity Stakes

Winners and Past Results The Vanity Stakes.

The Vanity Stakes is a Group 3 race for three-year-old fillies hosted by Victoria Racing Club during the Melbourne autumn racing carnival in February.

Fillies travel 1400 metres of the Flemington Racetrack under set weights & penalty conditions. The male equivalent of the race, the CS Hayes Stakes for colts & geldings is also held on the same day. The Vanity is worth $150,000 in prize money which is most often taken home by better performing fillies. The other feature race of the day is the Group 1 Lightning Stakes.

Being an early race in the year, fillies may make their way to The Vanity Stakes from a number of handicap events or even after a spell. However, the race is a handy form guide for future races during the season with many becoming multiple Group 1 winners over the season. Fillies may fancy their chances in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Classic at Moonee Valley in March. The Group 2 Kewney Stakes over 1400 metres at Flemington on Super Saturday in March is also another route that many fillies may take.

The Vanity began as a listed race in 1987 and was granted Group 3 status in 2000. It was briefly downgraded as a listed race once again in 2004 before stepping up to Group 3 once again the next year. Greeting in 1998 and Dextrous in 2003 are among the notable gallopers to take home The Vanity, while Ballet Society in 2005 and Southern Speed in 2011 also obliged their connections.
