The Euclase Stakes is a Group 2 event that is held during the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival over a distance of 1200 metres.
In recent years has developed into a key lead- up race for the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m).
The Euclase Stakes was first held in 1981 as a Listed race and was upgraded to a Group 3 event in 1986 before it received another upgrade to Group 2 status in 1991 – a level where it has
remained ever since.
The $500,000 race is run under set weight conditions, with colts and geldings carrying 57.5 kilograms and fillies 55.5 kilograms.
A number of talented horses have won the Euclase Stakes in recent years including Troubles, Honalee, Universal Queen, Diplomatic Force, Go The Knuckle, Lonhspresso and Miracles Of Life.
The race has been known by many names since it was first held in 1981, but it is now named after talented galloper Euclase, who took out the 1991 edition of the race before he went on to win
