  • 2nd: #5 Verry Elleegant
  • 3rd: #1 Avilius



The Ranvet Stakes is a quality Group 1 race conducted by the Australian Turf Club (ATC) as part of the premier racing carnival in New South Wales, the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Held midway through the Autumn Carnival in late March on Golden Slipper Stakes Day at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, this weight-for-age staying event run over 2000m is worth $700,000 in total prize money.

Golden Slipper Stakes Day features an incredible five Group 1 races: theGroup 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m), the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m), the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) and the Ranvet Stakes.

Many horses in the Ranvet Stakes field many have had an earlier autumn lead-up in Sydney in a race like the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Randwick in late February. Contributer (2015) was the last horse to complete the Chipping Norton Stakes – Ranvet Stakes double.

Some runners may come into the race via a Melbourne run earlier in the season such as the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) that takes place at Flemington the Saturday before. Manighar (2012) was the last Australian Cup – Ranvet Stakes interstate double winner. In 2018, Gailo Chop improved on a lead-up second in the Australian Cup as the beaten favourite there to salute for the punters in the Ranvet Stakes results.

The 2019 Ranvet Stakes winner Avilius meanwhile improved on a lead-up fifth in the Australian Cup the start prior.

Runners in the Ranvet Stakes may continue their autumn campaign in other high status events like the Group 1 The BMW (2400m) – now known as the Tancred Stakes – run a week later at Rosehill. Plenty of The BMW winners had their final lead-up in the Ranvet Stakes including Silent Achiever (2014) who recently achieved the double, and Avilius (2019) who also took out the Ranvet – Tancred Stakes double. The Ranvet Stakes winner is exempt from ballot for the Tancred Stakes and so punters are always keen to watch this race in anticipation of their Tancred Stakes bets.

The other key autumn feature for weight-for-age horses out of the Ranvet Stakes is the Group 1 $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) held at Randwick during ‘The Championships’ in April.

As the first weight-for-age event of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival run over 2000m, the Ranvet Stakes attracts a quality field of classy gallopers. Noteworthy Ranvet Stakes winners include Grand Armee (2005), Tie The Knot (2000 & 2001), Veandercross (1993), Super Impose (1991) and Better Loosen Up (1990).

The 2020 Ranvet Stakes ran at Rosehill on Saturday March 21, 2020 and was won in a thrilling finish by the UK raider Addeybb.

  • 2nd: #5 Verry Elleegant
  • 3rd: #1 Avilius

It was a thrilling finish in the 2020 Ranvet Stakes results, the William Haggas-trained UK raider Addeybb digging deep to hold off the gutsy challenge by Chris Waller’s class mare Verry Elleegant in a two horse race to the line.

Last year’s champion Avilius ran third, but was over five lengths off the dynamite duo, Addeybb ($3.40) running the ideal early lead-up for the $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes next month.

Ranvet Stakes History

The Ranvet Stakes was first run in 1903 and won by Great Scot. It began as a principal race run over nine furlongs and was known as the Rawson Stakes. In 1963 the race distance was decreased to eight furlongs until it was converted into 1750 meters in 1973. A few years later in 1979 the distance was increased to its current length of 2000m. The following year in 1980 the event was elevated to Group 1 status. In 1988 the race changed its name to the Segenhoe Stakes until 1991 when it became registered as the Ranvet Stakes as Ranvet took over sponsorship of the race.

Recently Theseo has won the Ranvet Stakes twice in a row, in 2009 and again in 2010. Zavite caused the biggest upset in the events history when he led all the way in 2011 as a 100 to 1 hope. Other notable recent Ranvet Stakes winners include Contributer (2015) and Silent Achiever (2014).
