The Edward Manifold Stakes is a Group 2 event for three-year-old fillies named after a committeeman of the Victorian Racing Club (VRC). Held on the same day as the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m), the set-weights race is a 1600m mile race run at Flemington Racecourse in early October as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Regarded as an ideal lead up race to the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) held the following Saturday at Caulfield Racecourse, many of the race’s winners will also go on to the Group 1  VRC Oaks (2500m) at Flemington on the first Thursday of November, a double achieved by Mosheen in 2011. Amphitrite (2018) was the last filly to complete the Edward Manifold Stakes / Thousand Guineas double.

The following year, the 2019 Edward Manifold Stakes winner Moonlight Maid went on to run third in the VRC Oaks results where Miami Bound improved on her Edward Manifold Stakes third to salute in the Group 1.

This year the Edward Manifold Stakes 2020 ran on Saturday October 3, 2020 and was won by the Godolphin-raced favourite Thermosphere.

Edward Manifold Stakes History

The Edward Manifold Stakes was first contested back in 1932 and gained its current Group 2 status in 1979. Plenty of star fillies have won the race over the years including Tranquil Star (1940), Light Fingers (1964), Storm Queen (1966), Emancipation (19820 and more recently Alinghi (2004).

Mosheen won the 2011 Edward Manifold Stakes and went on to take out that year’s Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. More recently in 2017 Bring Me Roses before a VRC Oaks second that year, and a third in the Australian Guineas the following autumn. In 2018 Amphitrite won the Edward Manifold / Thousand Guineas double.
