The ...

The 2016 Ranvet Stakes is a quality Group 1 race conducted by the Australian Turf Club as part of the premier racing carnival in New South Wales, the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Held midway through the Autumn Carnival in March on Coolmore Classic Day in  at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, this weight-for-age staying event run over 2000m is worth $500,000. The other Group 1 race at the meeting is the Coolmore Classic (1500m).

The 2016 Ranvet Stakes will be run at Rosehill on Saturday 19th of March, 2016.

Runners in the Ranvet Stakes may continue their autumn campaign in other high status events like the Group 1 BMW Stakes (2400m WFA) a fortnight later on Golden Slipper Day or the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m WFA) on the final day of The Championships at Randwick. The Ranvet Stakes winner is exempt from ballot for The BMW and so punters are always keen to watch this race in anticipation of their BMW bets.  The Ranvet Stakes / The BMW Stakes makes for an exciting betting double in the carnival and in recent years Eremein (2006) and Tuesday Joy (2008) have both completed the double.

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 winners include Grand Armee (2005), Tie The Knot (2000 & 2001), Veandercross (1993), Super Impose (1991) and Better Loosen Up (1990).

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.

Ranvet Stakes Field

The Ranvet Stakes field can feature a maximum of eighteen runners, as well as four emergencies, and the race generally draws the best weight-for-age horses from Sydney. Although the Ranvet Stakes does not have the same prestige of races like The BMW or the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, it always draws a strong field of horses and the quality is expected to rise after the prize money for the Group 1 event was increased to $500,000.

2016 Ranvet Stakes Tips

Ranvet Stakes tips have been tough in recent years, with Zavite and Foreteller, both winning the race at big odds, but in the early 2000s the race was great for punters as a number of favorites saluted in the Group 1 event. Punters looking to find the Ranvet Stakes winner need to closely analyse both the Chipping Norton Stakes and Australian Cup as the winner of the race generally comes from these two lead-up events. Gold Guru in 1998 was the last Ranvet Stakes winner that did not have his previous start in either the Chipping Norton Stakes or the Australian Cup.
