Looking for early info on this year’s Danehill Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
At a sprinting distance of 1100m, reduced from 1200m in 2021, the Danehill Stakes is a Group 2 race held at Flemington Racecourse each year on Turnbull Stakes Day during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It was previously run on Makybe Diva Stakes Day before being moved back a fortnight in 2021 and now runs on the same date as Sydney’s Epsom Handicap Day.
With a $300,000 prize-purse, the race attracts several star three-year-olds and is an ideal lead-up for those looking to progress further to the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) in the coming weeks.
Sepoy (2011) was the last horse to complete the Danehill Stakes – Coolmore Stud Stakes double.
