The 2017 Surround Stakes is an annual Group 2 contest hosted in Sydney at Warwick Farm Racecourse during March.
The Surround Stakes is an event specifically for three year old fillies and contested across a trip of 1400m under set weight conditions. The race carries a prize pool of $200,000 and is held on the same card as the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes.
The Surround Stakes is usually a hotly contested race as horses should be fit by the time they get here. They should also have recent form on the board making it a race punters love to get involved in.
Plenty of horses will have come through the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes beforehand giving a fantastic read ahead of the Surround Stakes at Warwick Farm.
