Looking for early info on this year’s Stan Fox Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
Run over 1,500 metres, the Stan Fox Stakes is a Group 2 race taking place at Royal Randwick Racecourse. With a $250,000 prize purse, it attracts a quality line-up middle-distance three-year-olds that could be targeting a Group 1 race down in Melbourne over the Cup Carnival.
This race has been run over two distances. For it’s first 32 years it was run at 1400 metres. Ever since 2011, it has been run at 1500 metres.
Starting out as a Principal Race, it then progressed to a Listed race in 1985, followed by Group 3 in 1989. It has been a Group 2 race since 1996.
The event now serves as a potential lead-up into the $1 million Bondi Stakes (1600m) held back at Randwick for three-year-olds at the end of October, an event the 2019 Stan Fox Stakes winner Colada ran third in.
