The 2017 Thoroughbred Club Stakes is a Group 3 race that takes place at Caulfield racecourse each year in October.
Run over a distance of 1,200 metres, the Thoroughbred Club Stakes is held as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. The Thoroughbred Club Stakes is run under set-weight plus penalty conditions and is open to three-year old fillies only. The race is worth a total of [cf “prize_money”] in prize money.
The Thoroughbred Club Stakes was originally run over a distance of 1,400 metres until 2000 when it was changed to today’s 1,200 metres.
The race is typically contested by fillies that have run in races such as the Group 3 Champagne Stakes earlier in the spring carnival. Those fillies that run well in the Thoroughbred Club Stakes will often go on to races like the Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes or the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Classic later in the carnival.
The Thoroughbred Club Stakes is held on the first day of the Caulfield Carnival in Melbourne. Included in the day’s program are the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, Group 1 Caulfield Stakes, Group 1 Toorak Handicap, Group 1 Thousand Guineas, Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes, Group 2 Schillaci Stakes and Group 3 Sportingbet Sprint Series Final.
Notable winners of the Thoroughbred Club Stakes include Imposera (1987), Arrabeea (2000), Patterns (2001), Avenue (2009) and Solar Charged (2010).
The Thoroughbred Club Stakes was inaugurated in 1976 and has developed a healthy reputation for strong racing since then.
