The 2016 Royal Sovereign Stakes is clearly marked on the calendar for many race fans with an interest that almost exceeds its Group 2 status. It’s a race for three year old colts and geldings held at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney annually during April as part of the 2nd day of The Championships.

It is a set weights contest over a trip of 1200m. The Royal Sovereign Stakes has a prize pool of $500,000 and a reputation for producing top notch racing action.

Every year some of the best three year olds in the country race the Royal Sovereign Stakes as a tune up for runs later in the year. Some may go in at full fitness while others may have reduced form due to events earlier in the year.

The fillies equivalent to the Royal Sovereign Stakes is the Light Fingers Stakes which is held in February.

Past winners of the Royal Sovereign Stakes include Danewin in 1995 and Assertive Lad in 2001.

Lonhro was the champion in 2002 and Exceed and Excel in 2005.

Shoot Out showed his class with his 2010 victory while the 2011 champ was Master Harry.
