Looking for early info on this year’s Percy Sykes Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.

The Percy Sykes Stakes (registered as the Keith Mackay Handicap) is a 1200m mile showdown for two-year-old fillies held on Day 2 of Sydney’s ‘The Championships’ at Royal Randwick each April. Offering $1 million in prize money, the set weights plus penalties event offers a nice next-up option for runners out of events like the Group 3 Magic Night Stakes held the previous month. Jamaea (2nd in 2021) was the last Percy Sykes Stakes winner to come off a Magic Night Stakes lead-up.

Fillies out of the coveted Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes may also choose to contest the Percy Sykes dropping down in grade for a still very lucrative prize.

Run and won since 1960, the race was renamed in 2015 to honour veterinarian Percy Sykes who was best known for saving the life of champion racehorse Tulloch.
