It’s run over a trip of 1800m under the conditions of set weight and penalties. Prize money for the Auraria Stakes totals $120,000.

The Auraria Stakes is also a crucial support race to the Group 2 Adelaide Cup held on the same program.

Due to a sponsorship arrangement the Auraria Stakes has also been known as the Schweppervescence Stakes in previous years.

Being a middle distance race for fillies the obvious progression from this race would be to either the Group 1 Australasian Stakes over 2000m or the Group 2 Queen Of The South Stakes over the mile.

Given the promise of a Group 1 in the weeks following some interstate runners may come across and use the Auraria Stakes as a lead in race.

Previous winners of the race include Yvonne in 2003, Moment In Time in 2008 and Shylight in 2011.
