The 2018 Surround Stakes is now a Group 1 race for three-year-old fillies held at Royal Randwick on Chipping Norton Stakes Day during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.



The Surround Stakes is at one of the newest Group 1 races in Australia, the event elevated from its former Group 2 status for the first time in 2018. The Surround Stakes is held towards the start of the prestigious Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival on Chipping Norton Stakes Day at Royal Randwick in late February or early March. The meeting is also headlined by the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) and features a host of other support races including the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes and Group 2 Skyline Stakes over the 1200m.

Run over 1400m, the Surround Stakes is a set weights race offering $500,000 in total prize money for three-year-old fillies. Fillies that previously contested the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) at Randwick earlier in the autumn may be looking for a step up in distance here on their way to some of the other lucrative carnival features, including taking on the boys in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) the following week.

Other possible runs for Surround Stakes fillies later in the season include the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) against the older mares and the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill at the end of March.

The Surround Stakes 2018 will take place on Saturday March 3, 2018, running as a Group 1 race for the first time.

Surround Stakes History

First run in 1979 the Surround Stakes inaugural winner was Impede. The race began as a Group 3 event run over 1400m and although the distance has remained the same, the status of the event was elevated to Group 2 level in 1986. The Surround Stakes became a Group 1 race for the first time in 2018. For one year in 1990 the Surround Stakes was downgraded to a Group 3 race again but regained Group 2 status the following year in 1991.

See below for the full Surround Stakes results dating back to 2000.
