The 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes is a Group 2 race that takes place during August at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney. The race is worth total prize money of $175,000 and is run over a distance of 1,200 metres. Run under quality handicap conditions, the Silver Shadow Stakes is part of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival and is open to three-year-old fillies only.
The first Silver Shadow Stakes was run in 1980 when it was won by a horse named Moabite. The Silver Shadow Stakes is suited to fillies that have just returned to racing after a winter spell or have competed in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes the week prior. The Silver Shadow Stakes was not held in 2007 due to the outbreak of Equine Influenza in Australia.
The Silver Shadow Stakes field is often made up of horses that have proved successful during their two-year-old campaign. Horses that run in the Silver Shadow Stakes often go on to run in races such as the Group 2 Furious Stakes and the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes later in the carnival.
Run on Warwick Stakes Day, the Silver Shadow Stakes shares its program with four other black type events. These are the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m), Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m), Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m) and Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m).
Notable horses to have won the Silver Shadow Stakes include Triscay (1990), Ha Ha (2001), Samantha Miss (2008) and Parables (2010).
