The 2017 McEwen Stakes is a Group 2 race that is held during September at Moonee Valley Racecourse in Melbourne. The race is worth total prize money of $200,000 and is run over a sprinter’s distance of 1,000 metres. Run under weight-for-age conditions, the McEwen Stakes is part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and is run on the same day as the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes and Listed Chandler MacLeod Stakes.

The first McEwen Stakes was run in 1995 when it was won by the talented Sequalo. The McEwen Stakes is often contested by horses that have come via races such as the Group 3 Missile Stakes in Sydney or the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap.

Horses that run well in the McEwen Stakes often go on to run in races such as the Group 1 Manikato Stakes later in the carnival. Hay List achieved the McEwen Stakes and Manikato Stakes double in 2010.

Also known as the Ian McEwen Trophy, the McEwen Stakes was known as the Anniversary Trophy for the first year it was held. The race is named after Ian McEwen, a former secretary of the Moonee Valley Racing Club.

Between 1995 and 1997 the race was unlisted, however it was upgraded to listed status in 1997 and held that until 2005. In 2006 the McEwen Stakes became a Group 3 event, a status it held until 2013, when it was upgraded to Group 2.

Notable horses to have won the McEwen Stakes include Testa Rossa (2000), Strategic Image (2001), Miss Andretti (2006), Here De Angels (2007) and Nicconi (2009).
