The 2017 Belle Of The Turf Stakes is a Group 3 race held at Gosford Racecourse in early to mid January each year.

Raced over 1600m, the Belle Of The Turf Stakes is an exciting mile event that pays a total of $125,000 prize money. It is restricted to fillies and mares aged three years and older, and is held under handicap conditions.

The Belle Of The Turf Stakes is held on Gosford Cup Day alongside two listed events, the Gosford Cup (2100m) and Takeover Target Stakes (1200m).

Those horses which target the Belle Of The Turf Stakes generally do so following a few sporadic starts towards the end of the previous year. Although the grade has been elevated recently, there are still a few local types that contest the Belle Of The Turf Stakes.

The short final straight at Gosford ensures that only top finishers come through in this race.

The Belle Of The Turf Stakes has a fairly decent history, stretching back to at least 1988. It was previously a listed event, but was upgraded to Group 3 in 2013.

Notable Belle Of The Turf Stakes winners include St Klaire (1988), Macrosa (1995), Rosa Marada (2002), Messenger (2009) and Myamira (2014).
