The 2017 Star Kingdom Stakes is a Group 3 race that takes place at Rosehill racecourse in late March or early April each year.
Run over a distance of 1,100 metres, the Star Kingdom Stakes is held as part of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. The Star Kingdom Stakes is run under open handicap conditions and is worth $150,000 in prize money.
The Star Kingdom Stakes was first run in 1985 when it was won by a horse named Gunyatti. It is named after the horse Star Kingdom, who was the leading sire in Australia for five seasons.
Horses that run in the Star Kingdom Stakes have often come via races such as the Group 2 Challenge Stakes, while those that run well in the race may go on to Group 1 The Galaxy later in the carnival.
The Star Kingdom Stakes is run on Golden Slipper Day, which is the richest day in the autumn carnival. The race shares its day with the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes, Group 1 The BMW, Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, Group 1 George Ryder Stakes, Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes, Group 2 Tulloch Stakes, Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes and Group 3 TL Baillieu Handicap.
Notable winners of the Star Kingdom Stakes include At Sea (1986), Investor (1990), Friend’s Venture (1992-1993), Camena (2001), Bradshaw (2002-2003), Mustard (2006) and Swift Alliance (2010-2011).
