2016 Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes News
The 2016 Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes is a Group 3 race that takes place annually at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne in February. The Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes is run under set weight plus penalty conditions and is open to fillies and mares only. The race is worth $150,000 in prize money and run over a distance of 1,200 metres. The Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes takes place as part of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.
The Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes was originally run as a Listed race until it was granted Group 3 status in 2007. The race is held as part of CF Orr Stakes Day and run on the same day as the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes, Group 2 Autumn Stakes, Group 3 Rubiton Stakes, Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies), Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (Colts and Geldings), Group 3 Carlyon Cup and Listed Kevin Hayes Stakes.
Races such as the Listed Doveton Stakes and the Group 2 Australia Stakes earlier in the Melbourne autumn are often valuable form guides for the Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes each year. Those fillies and mares that perform well in the Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes then often go on to run in races such as the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes later in the month.
Notable winners of the Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes include Napping (2002), Glamour Puss (2005), Lucky Diva (2008) and Beaded (2011).
