Run over 1,400 metres during February or March each year, the Hobartville Stakes is a Group 2 race, held during the early stages of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. With a four hundred dollar prize purse, it attracts some of the best three year olds, nationwide.
This race serves a nice little lead in to the 1600 metre Randwick Guineas, which takes place a fortnight later at the Group 1 level.
For almost forty years, it has been held at the Group 2 level. For the first fifty three years of its existence, it was a Principal race.
