Chipping Norton Stakes History

The Chipping Norton Stakes was a Group 2 race between 1980 and 1985 and was also occasionally run at Randwick where it will take place in 2017. Originally hosted at Warwick Farm Racecourse, the Stakes was won by Tie The Knot over four consecutive years from 1999 to 2002. Even the legendary Phar Lap won the Chipping Norton Stakes in 1930.

Other notable Chipping Norton Stakes winners include Danleigh (2011), Shoot Out (2012-13) and of course the world’s best mare Winx (2016-18) who posted three straight wins in the race including a seven length romp home in 2018.

See below for the Chipping Norton Stakes winners dating back to 2000.
