The Group 1 ATC Champagne Stakes is the final two-year-old Group status race of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Held at Randwick Racecourse on All Aged Stakes Day in mid to late April, the 1600m Champagne Stakes is worth $500,000 in prize money. As a set weights race for juveniles, colts and geldings must carry 56.5kg and fillies must carry 54.5kg.

The mile clash takes place on the same day as the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) and is run on the Saturday after The Championships finish-up at Royal Randwick. The key lead-up into the Champagne Stakes field is the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) held a fortnight earlier and recent winners of the double include Guelph (2013), Pierro (2012) and Helmet (2011).

The 2018 Champagne Stakes ran at Royal Randwick on Saturday April 21, 2018 and was won by the Mick Price-trained filly Seabrook.
