The race stretches for 1200m around the tight turning circuit and is worth $150,000 to the winning connections.

The Champagne Stakes is raced on the same card as the Group 1 Manikato Stakes, the biggest sprint event of the year hosted by the Moonee Valley Racing Club.

The night racing atmosphere at Moonee Valley creates a unique environment and perfect conditions for fast racing.

The fillies in this race are often of good quality but some can be shown up if it’s their first visit to the Valley.

From this race look for the three year olds to contest races like the Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes or the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes.

This race has only been around since the year 2000 with MVRC Champagne Stakes winners including Avenue in 2009, Lone Rock in 2010 and Miss Stellabelle in 2011.

2015 MVRC Champagne Stakes Field

The MVRC Champagne Stakes field is usually comprised of talented three year old fillies on their way to great careers. The MVRC Champagne Stakes field attracts fillies who have already been racing during the spring and intend on targeting later fillies-only events.
