Vinery Stud Stakes

Vinery Stud Stakes, Rosehill Racecourse

Run over 2,000 metres each year on Easter Sunday, the Vinery Stud Stakes is a Group 1 race. With a $500,000 prize purse, it attracts some of Australia’s best medium to long distance runners, including quite a few entrants from New Zealand.

If you’re looking for a nice lead in to this race, look no further than the 1,500 metre Coolmore Classic, taking place two weeks earlier.

For its first year, the race had been held as a Principal Race. From 1980-1992 it had been upgraded to Group 2, before finally becoming a Group 1 race in 1993, where it has stayed until present.
