Todman Stakes

Todman Stakes, Randwick Racecourse

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

Run over 1,200 metres, the Todman Stakes is a Group 2 race, held every March for two-year-olds heading towards the coveted Group 1 $5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).

A set weights event for juvenile colts and geldings, it is run at Royal Randwick during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival on Randwick Guineas Day, which also features the Group 2 Reisling Stakes for Golden Slipper-bound fillies.

Farnan (2020) was the last horse to complete the Todman Stakes – Golden Slipper Stakes double for Gai Waterhouse.

The 2021 Todamn Stakes winner Anamoe went on to firmly frank the form out of the race with a Golden Slipper second and Group 1 Inglis Sires’ win that autumn. He won twice more in the spring, including the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m), with a Group 1 Golden Rose second in between and finished a devastatingly close second in that October’s $5 million Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley.

Which Horse Will Win The Todman Stakes

The best way to pick which young horse will win the Todman Stakes in 2022 is to take into account any lead-up autumn racing form, assess the barriers, consider the weights and back the proven Black-Type performers.

  • Local Legends – There are a lot of maidens usually participating in this race. Rather than back one of them, look for a horse which has recently taken out a race at Rosehill or Randwick.
