The 2016 Hollindale Stakes is held in the first week of May in one of Australia’s best located precincts, Gold Coast Racecourse, just a stone’s throw away from Surfers Paradise beach. The Group 2 event is run under weight-for-age conditions over a distance of 1800m.

The Wimmers Soft Drinks A.D. Hollindale Stakes is worth $358,000 and is run on the same day as the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas. It’s easily the biggest day of racing for the Gold Coast outside the Magic Millions and gives the local punters a good level of Group racing which they deserve more of.

Some of the best horses to ever run in Australia have competed in the Wimmers Soft Drinks A.D. Hollindale Stakes and they’ve performed very well, including Shogun Lodge who won back-to-back in 2000 and 2001.

Rough Habit also won two in a row in 1991 and 1992 before going on to claim the Group 1 Doomben Cup as well. The legendary Might And Power followed the same Group 1 path after claiming the Hollindale Stakes in 1998.

Scenic Shot won this race in 2008 but never kicked on the rest of that season. The following year however he ran fifth in the Hollindale Stakes before an amazing turn of form saw him win the Doomben Cup, PJ O’Shea stakes and the Brisbane Cup.

In 2012, Lights of Heaven narrowly missed out on first place, but came back to win the Hollindale Stakes the next year.
