Schillaci Stakes, Caulfield

Run over 1,100 metres, the Schillaci Stakes is a Group 2 race taking place at Caulfield Racecourse. With a $300,000 prize purse, it attracts a quality line-up of sprinters. 

Starting out as a Principal Race, this race has held Group 2 status since 1979.

The event is also now a key lead-up into the following wee’s $15 million The Everest at Royal Randwick. In 2019 the Schillaci Stakes winner Trekking went on to run third in that year’s The Everest results and second in the $1 million Winners Stakes named in honour of the previous season’s The Everest champ Redzel.
