The Race: The premier staying race for fillies during the Autumn Racing Carnival in Sydney. Fillies that perform well in or win this race have often gone on to be solid performers in the distance races in the Spring Carnival with perhaps Light Fingers arguably the best to follow this path. She had already won the 1964 VRC Oaks, Sandown Guineas, Edward Manifold, Wakeful, and after the 1965 AJC Oaks win when she went on to win a raft of other Group races including the Melbourne Cup the same year and was just beaten by Galilee in the Melbourne Cup of 1966.
Notable Winners: Flight (1944), Wenona Girl (1961), Light Fingers (1965), Surround (1977), Leilani (1974), Seranade Rose (2006), Streama (2012)
Best lead-up form: Storm Queen (Vinery Stud), Adrian Knox Stakes, Randwick Guineas, Rosehill Guineas, Kewney.
Time: 2:26.36 Spechenka (2010).
Track Bias: The race starts in front of the grandstand and the long straight gives everyone the chance to take a position to their liking, with 3 corners and 3 straights to get round all runners will get their chance. Over this distance barriers are of less importance although an extreme outside draw can make things difficult as the rail is usually moved out for the second week of racing at Randwick during The Championships.
