The 2016 Kingston Town Stakes is a Group 3 race that is held each September at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney. The race is worth total prize money of $125,000 and is run over a stayer’s distance of 2,000 metres.
Run under quality handicap conditions, the Kingston Town Stakes is part of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival and is open to horses aged three-years-old and upwards. The race is run on the same day as the Group 2 Theo Mark Stakes and the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes.
