Robert Sangster Stakes

The 2018 Robert Sangster Stakes is a Group 1 race that is held at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide in April or May each year. The Robert Sangster Stakes is worth $1 000,000 and is open to fillies and mares only.

Run under weight-for-age conditions, the Robert Sangster Stakes is run over a distance of 1,200 metres. The Robert Sangster Stakes takes place on the same day as the Group 1 Australasian Oaks, Group 2 Queen of the South Stakes and the Group 3 DC McKay Stakes.

The first Robert Sangster Stakes was run in 1983 when it was won by a horse named Ranee’s Place. In 1983 the Robert Sangster Stakes was known as a Special Race and became a Listed race the year after. The Robert Sangster Stakes became a Group 3 in 1986 before it was elevated to Group 2 status in 2004. The race spent just one year as a Group 2 race before it was given Group 1 status in 2005.

From 1983-2004 the Robert Sangster Stakes was known as the Swettenham Stud Stakes, but was named after the prolific owner and breeder Robert Sangster after he died in 2004. Robert Sangster was the principal of Swettenham Stud and the race was re-named to pay tribute to his contribution to the racing industry.

Horses that run in the Robert Sangster Stakes have often had successful autumn campaigns in Melbourne and Sydney. Runners that are successful in the Robert Sangster Stakes often go on to run in the Group 2 Queen Of The South Stakes later in the month.

Notable horses that have won the Robert Sangster Stakes include Suzy Grey (2002), Alinghi (2005) Bel Mer (2009) and Response (2011).
