The Tulloch Stakes 2018 is a Group 2 rated contest hosted annually in the midst of the famous Sydney autumn racing carnival. The Tulloch Stakes actually falls on the biggest day of racing in Sydney the entire year, Golden Slipper Day.
With races such as The BMW, Vinery Stud Stakes and of course the Golden Slipper also on the card it’s easy to see why the Tulloch Stakes is so popular.
The race itself is a 2000m test for three year old colts and geldings contested under set weight conditions. There is $175,000 in prizes up for grabs as well as the honour of triumphing at Rosehill Gardens on their biggest day.
The Tulloch Stakes gives a prime leap frog for staying horses into the ATC Australian Derby just one week later, that race over a trip of 2400m.
That being said over the past few years the Tulloch Stakes hasn’t been a reliable guide to the ATC Australian Derby.
In fact Starcraft was the last horse to claim the double all the way back in 2004.
There have been some notable winners in the Tulloch Stakes though including Durbridge in 1991 and Shogun Lodge in 2000.
Recent winners include Count Encosta in 2010, Fast Clip in 2011, Polish Knight in 2012 and Philippi in 2013.
