The 2016 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes is a Group 1 race that takes place at Randwick Racecourse on Day 1 of The Championships in Sydney during April each year.

The ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes is worth $1 million in prize money and takes place on the same day as the Group 1 Doncaster Mile, Group 1 Australian Derby, Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes, Group 2 Chairman’s Handicap, Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes, Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes, Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes and Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes.

The race was formerly known as the AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes before the merger of the Australian Jockey Club and the Sydney Turf Club. The race then took on the title of the newly formed Australian Turf Club to be known as the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

The first ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes was run in 1867 when it was won by a horse named Glencoe. The race is the middle leg of the two-year-old ‘Triple Crown’, which also includes the Golden Slipper and the Champagne Stakes. The ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes did not take place from 1894-1904, but recommenced in 1905 and was briefly run over six furlongs (1200m) metres. The race was changed to 1,400 metres in 1973 to coincide with the introduction of the metric system.

Horses that run in the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes often come via races such as the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes two weeks prior. Those horses that perform well in the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes are likely to continue on to races such as the Group 1 Champagne Stakes at Randwick on the final day of the Randwick Autumn Carnival. Dance Hero (2004), Hasna (2003), Victory Vein (2002), Viscount (2001) and Assertive Lad (2000) have all won the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes and Champagne Stakes double.

Notable horses to have won the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes include Chester (1877), Ajax (1937), Shannon (1944), Tulloch (1957), Wenona Girl (1960), Baguette (1970), Octagonal (1995), Sebring (2008) and Helmet (2011).
