The 2016 San Domenico Stakes is a Group 3 race that takes place during August at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney. The race is worth total prize money of $150,000 and is run over a distance of 1,100 metres. Run under set-weight plus penalty conditions, the San Domenico Stakes is part of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival and is open to three-year-old horses only.
The first San Domenico Stakes was run in 1980 when it was won by a horse named Proud Knight. The San Domenico Stakes is suited to horses that have just returned to racing after a winter spell. The field is often made up of horses that have had successful two-year-old campaigns and are now running in their first race as a three-year-old.
Horses that run in the San Domenico Stakes have often come via two-year-old feature races such as the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes and the Group 1 Golden Slipper. Those runners that perform well in the San Domenico Stakes are likely to go on and run in races such as the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes, Group 3 Roman Consul Stakes and Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes on Victoria Derby Day during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Notable horses to have won the San Domenico Stakes include General Nediym (1997), Testa Rossa (1999), Charge Forward (2004), Shellscrape (2009) and Obsequious (2010).
