Vinery Stud Stakes

Vinery Stud Stakes, Rosehill Racecourse

The Vinery Stud Stakes is a Group 1 race run in late March on Tancred Stakes Day over 2000m at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. 

Offering $500,000 in prize money, the set weights race is open only to three-year-old fillies and was formerly known as the Storm Queen Stakes.

The Group 1  Coolmore Classic (1500m) held a fortnight prior makes a nice lead-up into the Vinery Stud Stakes, while the Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) at Randwick over ‘The Championships’ is the traditional next-up option. 

Verry Elleegant (2019) followed by Hungry Heart (2021) are the latest fillies to complete the Vinery Stud Stakes – ATC Oaks double. Verry Elleegant also returned a year later as a four-year-old mare to win the meeting’s Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) ahead of her 2021 Melbourne Cup success that spring.

Note: In 2022 the Vinery Stud Stakes ran at Newcastle over 1850m the Monday after the washed-out Rosehill meeting.
