Kewney Stakes History
First won by Great Field in 1952, the A.V. Kewney Stakes has featured several superb fillies including 1999 winner Sunline from New Zealand. Sunline was the highest earning female racehorse of her time amassing over $11 million in prize money.
The Kewney Stakes was traditionally run over 2000m before being cut to a mile (1600m) from 1985 – 2009 and then the current 1400m distance from 2010 onwards. After kicking off as a Principle Race, the event gained Group 2 status in 1979 and took place at Caulfield Racecourse for one year in 2007 as Flemington underwent an upgrade.
Notable recent Kewney Stakes winners include Solicit (2014) and I Am A Star (2017).
