The Euclase Stakes is a Group 2 feature race for three-year-olds held in early May on Robert Sangster Stakes Day during the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over a sprint distance of 1200m, the set weights clash is the major support race on the dual Group 1 Morphettville meeting that is headlined by the Robert Sangster Stakes and Australasian Oaks.

Worth $500,000 in total prize money, the event is run by the South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC) and was inaugurated in 1981. The Euclase Stakes field attracts both locally-trained and visiting interstate raiders chasing a share in the half-a-million-dollars in stakes. Runners may have earlier contested Melbourne’s Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) in March, while the traditional lead-up is Morphettville’s Listed Redelva Stakes (1100m) run a fortnight before.

Euclase Stakes History

The event been known as a number of different race names over the years for sponsorship purposes, but has been officially registered as the Euclase Stakes since 1991. The race’s original name was the Great Western Plate (1981 – 87) followed by the Carrington Blush Plate (1988 – 89), the Angus Brut Classic (1990-2000), the Yallambee Classic (2001-13).

The title Euclase came from the 1991 winner of the race of the same name. The first Euclase Stakes winner was Apollo’s Flame who won the race when it only held Listed status. The event was elevated to a Group 3 event from 1986 – 1990 before gaining its current Group 2 status in 1991 when the aforementioned Euclase took it out.

The most notable Euclase Stakes winner in recent years was Miracles Of Life (2014), winner of the previous year’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne.
