The Guy Walter Stakes is a Group 2 middle distance sprint for mares aged four-years-old and above run on Chipping Norton Stakes Day at Randwick Racecourse in late February or early March during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Formerly a Group 3 event, in 2017 the 1400m set weights plus penalties clash is upgraded to Group 2 status and offers $200,000 in prize money. The Wiggle Stakes was renamed as the Guy Walter Stakes from 2015 in honour of late trainer Guy Walter who prepared 36 Group 1 winners over his career.

The meeting’s marquee races are the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) run over the mile under weight-for-age conditions, along with the recently upgraded Group 1 Surround Stakes (1400m) for three-year-old fillies. Other features on the program include the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (Fillies) and Group 2 Skyline Stakes (Colts & Geldings) for Golden Slipper Stakes-bound two-year-olds.

Mares may come into the Guy Walter Stakes field via a number of earlier autumn lead-ups including the Group 3 Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne a fortnight earlier or either the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) or Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) on the same day at Royal Randwick in Sydney.

Possible races Guy Walter Stakes graduates may continue on to include the Group 3 Aspiration Quality (1600m) held over the mile at Randwick a week later or tougher races such as the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill in two weeks. The last Coolmore Classic winner to come off a run in the Guy Walter Stakes was Peeping (3rd in 2016).  Looking further ahead of the Autumn Racing calendar events like the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on The BMW Day and Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) during April’s ‘The Championships’ shape up as nice targets for the mares out of the Guy Walter Stakes.

The 2019 Guy Walter Stakes runs on Saturday March 2, 2019.

Guy Walter Stakes History

The Guy Walter Stakes was run as the Wiggle Stakes up until 2015 when it was renamed in honour of the late horseman Guy Walter. The race has also been run as the Wiggle Quality Handicap (1996-99 & 2005-2011) as well as the Wiggle Fillies and Mares Quality Handicap (2000-04). It began as a Listed race (1996-2013) before gaining Group 3 status in 2014. From 2017 onwards the Guy Walter Stakes will hold Group 2 status.

Prior to 2005 it was also open to three-year-old fillies, but is now restricted only to mares aged four-years-old or over. It has run under its current set weights plus penalties conditions since 2012.

Notable recent Guy Walter Stakes / Wiggle Stakes winners include Hot Danish (2008 & 2009), Steps In Time (2012 & 2013), Catkins (2014), Solicit (2016) and Dixie Blossoms (2017 & 2018).
