The 2019 Phar Lap Stakes is a Group 2 contest raced annually at Rosehill Racecourse late in March. The event is for three year olds and is held across a trip of 1500m under set weight conditions.
The Phar Lap Stakes holds a key position during the Sydney autumn racing carnival and is worth [cf “prize_money”] to the winning connections.
Given the set weighting the most talented horses always have an advantage here and you can expect the winner to almost certainly rise to Group 1 level later on.
The Phar Lap Stakes is scheduled on the same card as the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Classic and then Group 1 Ranvet Stakes.
There are a huge number of options for horses continuing on after this with everything from the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap to the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby having been targeted in the past.
Previous winners of the Phar Lap Stakes include Arlington Road in 2002, Apache Cat in 2006, Heart Of Dreams in 2009 and Tickets in 2010.
