The 2017 Spring Stakes is a Group 3 race that is run at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide in August each year. The race is run under weight-for-age conditions and is worth $120,000 in prize money. The Spring Stakes is run over a sprinter’s distance of 1,200 metres and is the first Group race of the new racing season in Adelaide.

The first Spring Stakes was run in 1988 when it was won by Redelva. Redelva went on to win three consecutive times and is still the only horse to have achieved that feat in the Spring Stakes. Hero Wind also won the Spring Stakes on three occasions (1994-95, 1997), however, not back-to-back.

Due to it being the only Group race run in Adelaide in the second half of the year, the Spring Stakes typically attracts a talented local field, as well as horses from other states that are suited to the race distance and conditions.  Horses that run well in races such as the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes in March often make the Spring Stakes their goal later in the year.

Notable horses to have won the Spring Stakes include Black Rouge (1992), Staaraq (1996), Star Joe (1999), Super Elegant (2005), Zupaone (2007), El Maze (2008), Midnight Mustang (2009) and Rebel Raider (2010).
