The Angus Armanasco Stakes stretches for a trip of 1400m with a prize pool totalling $200,000. The race is held under set weight conditions and as such attracts a quality field.

In the past the Angus Armanasco Stakes have actually been run across a longer trip but in 2010 the decision was made to drop it back to the current 1400m trek. This was done in conjunction with the Group 2 Kewney Stakes which is held two weeks later and also across 1400m.

Naturally then the Angus Armanasco Stakes leads in perfectly to the Kewney Stakes which is hosted also in Melbourne but at Flemington Racecourse.

Many horses will come from Flemington into this event as well with the Group 2 Vanity Stakes acting is the normal precursor.

The Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic is another option held during the same period at Moonee Valley on a Friday night.

This race usually attracts the bets fillies in work across the Autumn and the winners list shows that some very nice types have won the event.

1993 was the most dramatic Angus Armanasco Stakes when Big Jamaica dead heated with Gold Design.

Since then the race has been won by the likes of Special Harmony in 2004, Miss Finland in 2007 and recently the 2011 champion Pinker Pinker.
