The 2017 CS Hayes Stakes is a Group 3 race held in February each year at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne. It forms part of the Melbourne autumn racing carnival and is specifically for three year old colts and geldings.
The event is run under set weight conditions and carries a prize pool of $150,000. It has formerly been known as The Debonair and is run over a trip of 1400m.
The race is run on Group 1 Lightning Stakes Day as is the male equivalent of the Group 3 Vanity Stakes for Fillies which is held on the same card.
This event is always hotly contested and usually attracts the very best three year old talent in work.
Horses passing through here are likely to be heading to the Group 1 Australian guineas or potentially the Group 2 Alistair Clarke Stakes at Moonee Valley.
It isn’t a good form guide for the Group 1 though with Dash For Cash the last horse to win the double back in 2002.
The Alister Clarke double occurred a little more recently with Lieutenant doing that in 2005.
Previous winners of the CS Hayes Stakes include Mossman in 1999, Crawl in 2000, Playwright in 2008 and Bullbars in 2011.
