The 2017 A.J. Moir Stakes, previously known as the Schweppes Stakes, is a 1000m sprint event worth $500,000 in prize money. The Group 1 short-distance feature is held at Moonee Valley Racecourse in Melbourne during the Spring Carnival under the lights on a special Friday night feature. The weight-for-age event is not as highly regarded as the Manikato Stakes or Patinack Farm Classic however it still attracts a good group of horses suited to the tight track. The best lead-up race is the 1000m Schillaci Stakes held two weeks prior. The Schillaci Stakes – Moir Stakes betting double is popular with punters and was last achieved by Black Caviar (2010 & 2011).

The Moir Stakes shares a race program with the Group 2 Stutt Stakes, Group 2 Stocks Stakes and Group 3 JRA Cup.

The 2017 Moir Stakes will run on Friday September 29, 2017.

Moir Stakes History

Formerly known as the A.J. Moir Stakes, the principal race was a 1000m event until 2007 when it was increased to 1200m. Once the race was elevated to Group 2 status in 1979, it was won by With Me twice in 1990-91 and The Judge in 1978-79. Apart from the A.J. Moir Stakes, the event was also called the Schweppervescence Stakes for some time. The Moir Stakes is now run over 1000m.

In 2013 the Moir Stakes was elevated from Group 2 to Group 1 status and attracts better sprinters every year. The most notable Moir Stakes winners include Black Caviar (2010-11) and triple champion Buffering (2012, 2014 & 2015).
