The Group 2 Furious Stakes is a set weight race for three year old fillies held at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney. Held in early September during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, the 1200m event is worth $200,000 in prize money.

Many fillies will first race in the Silver Shadow Stakes held two weeks earlier. Formality (2017) and Libertini (2018) are the most recent fillies to complete the Silver Shadow – Furious Stakes double.

The better performing fillies will then advance to the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) held at Rosehill Gardens. Foxplay (2016) was the last to take out the Furious Stakes – Tea Rose Stakes double.

The Furious Stakes is part of the ‘Princess Series Of Races’ and the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) over the mile at Randwick on Epsom Handicap Day completes the series.

The Furious Stakes 2019 ran on Saturday September 7, 2019 and saw the hot favourite Libertini narrowly salute for the punters.
