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 Sydney’s Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) at Royal Randwick or the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) during ‘The Championships’. The traditional local lead-up is Morphettville’s Listed Redelva Stakes (1100m) run a fortnight before.

The Euclase Stakes 2018 ran on Saturday May 5, 2018 and was won in a massive upset by $151 roughie I’ll Have A Bit.

2018 Euclase Stakes Field

The Euclase Stakes field attracts a smart line-up of three-year-olds from Adelaide and interstate stables coming off a number of various lead-up races. Some of the runners may back-up on successive Saturdays going on to run in the Listed Adelaide Guineas (1600m) over the mile a week later.

The official Euclase Stakes 2018 Field & Barriers will be announced below the week of the race.

The 2018 Euclase Stakes Final Field attracted a dozen three-year-old sprinters before the early scratching of the Will Clarken-trained Split Lip (8). Nature Strip dominates the Euclase Stakes field and betting markets, the ultra-consistent John Sadler-trained Nicconi gelding coming off a lead-up second at Caulfield carrying more weight and will be fitter second-up.

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.

The biggest recent upset Euclase Stakes result came in 2018 when $151 roughie I’ll Have A Bit saluted late.
