The 2017 ATC Sires Produce Stakes – also known as the Inglis’ Sires Produce – is a Group 1 race for the season’s best two-year-olds. Worth $1,000,000 in prize money, the 1400m event is a set weights race with colts and geldings carrying 56.5kg and fillies carrying 54.5kg.

The race is held on one of the biggest race days in Sydney – Doncaster Mile Day – that runs on the first Saturday in April as Day 1 of ‘The Championships’. The meeting has a total of four Group 1 races with the Group 1 ATC Australian Derby (2400m), Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) and the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) the other highlights on the card.

The 2017 ATC Sires Produce Stakes will take place on Saturday April 1 at Royal Randwick.

This is the first event greater than 1200m for all two year old horses competing in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and is therefore used as a guide to the upcoming Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m), which is held on the final day of the Randwick Autumn Racing Carnival two weeks after the ATC Sires Produce Stakes.

The ATC Sires Produce Stakes / Champagne Stakes double has recently been achieved by the likes of Guelph (2013), Pierro (2012) and Helmet (2011).

Many of the horses that make up the ATC Sires Produce Stakes field come off a run in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill in March, which is the world’s richest race for juveniles. The last two-year-old to win the Golden Slipper Stakes – ATC Sires Produce double was Pierro (2012).
