The RN Irwin Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 2 Adelaide Cup, one of the few cup’s still run over the traditional two mile trips. It’s one of the biggest race cards all year at Morphettville.

The RN Irwin Stakes is a good event that attracts the best sprinters around in Adelaide at the time.

That said the carnival competes with the bigger races in Sydney and Melbourne and as such any travellers are likely to be under the top liners.

The races following this  event can include the Group 3 DC Mackay Stakes and the big one, the Group 1 Goodwood towards the end of the carnival.

While we said top line horses don’t often travel that wasn’t the case in 2011 when Avenue won the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate before winning here.

Other champions include the mighty Street Ruffian in 1992 and Scorn Bold who won twice in 1996 and 1997.

More recently Bomber Bill won in 2003, Here De Angels in 2008 and Diplomatic Force in 2009.
