The 2017 Vinery Stud Stakes – registered as the Storm Queen Stakes – is a Group 1 race for three-year-old fillies held as part of the exciting Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. A middle distance event run over 2000m, the Vinery Stud Stakes is run on The BMW Day at Rosehill Gardens. This elite race meeting conducted by the Australian Turf Club (ATC) also features the Group 1 The BMW Stakes (2400m) as well as a host of Group 2 & 3 support races including the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) and the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m).

Offering $500,000 in total prize money the Vinery Stud Stakes is run at set weights and so favours the class fillies in the field. A key lead-up into the Vinery Stud Stakes field is the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) run at the same track but open to both fillies and mares a fortnight before.

Most of the Vinery Stud Stakes runners are looking to back-up at Royal Randwick in two weeks on Day 2 of ‘The Championships’ in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m). Recent Vinery Stud Stakes graduates to win the ATC Oaks include Rising Romance (4th in 2014), Streama (2nd in 2012) and Once Were Wild (5th in 2010).

The 2017 Vinery Stud Stakes will be run on Saturday March 25.

Vinery Stud Stakes History

The Vinery Stud Stakes is a relatively young Australian thoroughbred race, first run in 1979 when Impede took out the race in impressive fashion. It began as a principal race run over 1900m but was given Group 2 status and run over 2000m the following year in 1980. In 1992 the Storm Queen Stakes gained its current Group 1 status.

Vinery Stud Stakes Winners

The Vinery Stud Stakes has been won by a number of talented fillies, but in 1989 was taken out by a genuine equine superstar in Research. Research won the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m), Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) during the 1988 Spring Racing Carnival and started her autumn campaign with a win in the Vinery Stud Stakes before capturing both the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) and the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) in the space of four days – a feat that has never been repeated. Other talented fillies whose names feature on the Vinery Stud Stakes honour roll include Serenade Rose (2006), Miss Finland (2007), Mosheen (2012) and Norzita (2013).
