Autumn Stakes History

The Autumn Stakes was first inaugurated in 1968, with Anvil taking out the first edition. In 1980, the race was granted Group 3 status, but was later downgraded to listed status in 1991. In 2005, the Autumn Stakes was again elevated to Group 3, and then to Group 2 in 2008. It has been known variously as the Schweppes Cup, Schweppervescence Cup and D’Urban Stakes.

Considered a good form guide for the Australian Guineas, in 2009 Heart of Dreams won the Australian Guineas after taking out third in the Autumn Stakes.

Notable Autumn Stakes winners include Blaze The Turf (1998), Apache Cat (2006), Light Fantastic (2008) and Pied A Terre (2012). Autumn Stakes results since 2000 are listed below.
