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

The Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes is a set weights race for three-year-old fillies contested over 1400m at Royal Randwick Racecourse in mid-September.

Held as part of the George Main Stakes Day card in Sydney, the Tea Rose Stakes offers $200,000 in prize money and is a key lead-up into the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) held back at the track over a mile a fortnight later. Funstar (2019) was the last filly to complete the Tea Rose Stakes – Flight Stakes double.

The Flight Stakes is the grand final of Sydney’s Princess Series, of which the Tea Rose Stakes is the third leg following on from the Silver Shadow Stakes and Furious Stakes.

In 2020 Dame Giselle made it a hat-trick of wins in the series taking out the Silver Shadow – Furious Stakes – Tea Rose triple.

Which Horse Will Win The Tea Rose Stakes in 2021?

The best way to pick which horse will win the Tea Rose Stakes in 2021 to take into account the form, assess the barriers, look at their past runs in Sydney and recent Group performances. 

Additional factors to consider when picking the Tea Rose Stakes winner include: 

  • Singles But Not Favourites – Fillies at single-figures in betting, but not the favourites, have the best recent record in the Tea Rose.
  • Furious Factor – The Group 2 Furious Stakes is the key lead-up into the Tea Rose Stakes producing plenty of winners including Dame Giselle (2020) who was the last to do the double.
  • 1400m Form – Fillies looking for 1400m to a mile make the best bet in the Tea Rose over straight out 1200m sprint types.

Tea Rose Stakes 2021 Favourites

Early Tea Rose Stakes 2021 favourites include Group 1 performer Four Moves Ahead and the Chris Waller-trained She’s All Class racing third and second-up respectively.
