The 2017 Pago Pago Stakes is a Group 2 contest bringing together the best two year old talent from the colts and geldings ranks. The event is held annually at the end of March at Rosehill during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.

The race is contested over a trip of 1200m under set weight conditions and pays out $175,000 in prize money.

The Pago Pago Stakes takes on even extra importance as well with the winner gaining a ballot exemption for the Golden Slipper a week later.

The race can often be a desperate and hard fought affair with trainers and jockeys having one last shot at getting their horse into the Golden Slipper field.

This guarantees fantastic racing and is a must watch for punters with a view ahead to the Golden Slipper.

Stratum is the latest horse to have claimed a Pago Pago Stakes / Golden Slipper double with his wins in 2005.

The Pago Pago Stakes is held on Rosehill Guineas Day at Rosehill, one of the biggest days on the entire calendar.

Previous winners of the event include Strategic in 1995, Shogun Lodge in 1999, Tickets in 2009 and recently Salade in 2011.
