The 2017 SAJC Sires Produce Stakes is a Group 3 race held every year during the month of April at Morphettville Racecourse in South Australia. It is one of the premiere two year old races held in Adelaide and carries a price tag of $115,000.
The event is run over a trip of 1400m under set weight conditions.
The SAJC Sires Produce Stakes takes place during the Adelaide autumn carnival and follows on from the Group 3 Jansz National two weeks earlier.
That event is over a trip of 1200m making this the logical next step.
It is the first time the vast majority of these runners will tackle a 1400m trip and for many it’s a test of their fitness given it will come at least three or four runs into a prep.
Horses that do well here may open doors for themselves to travel across to the east coast as a three year old.
Rebel Raider did just that after winning the 2008 SAJC Sires Produce Stakes and then won the Group 1 Victoria Derby at huge odds.
The nest year Silent Surround did the same after winning the 2009 SAJC Sires Produce Stakes and then placing in the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes and Group 2 Wakeful Stakes at Flemington.
It’s not just a one way street though and some two year olds will be sent across to Adelaide to compete so they miss the top line talent in Sydney.
Cute Emily did just that in 2011 and after winning a race at Caulfield claimed the SAJC Sires Produce Stakes title.
Other champions include Umrum in 1997, Under The Bridge in 2003 and Stirling Grove in 2010.
