The Hobartville Stakes is a Group 2 set weights race for three-year-olds run during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival in late February or early March each year.

Held at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens Racecourse the Hobartville Stakes runs alongside the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) for Golden Slipper-bound two-year-olds and the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) for fillies and mares.

The Hobartville Stakes now worth a lucrative $400,000 in total prize money is the ideal lead up race to Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) held a fortnight later. From 2013 – 2017 all five Randwick Guineas winners were graduates out of the Hobartville Stakes, including Dissident (2014) and Hallowed Crown (2015) who both did the double.

As a set weights race over 1400m, colts and geldings must carry 56.5kg while fillies are required to carry 54.5kg in the Hobartville Stakes field.

Horses may run in the Hobartville Stakes first-up or come from an earlier autumn run in a race like the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) at the start of the month, a double last completed by Kementari (2018).

The Hobartville Stakes 2018 ran on Saturday February 24, 2018 and was won by the Randwick Guineas favourite Kementari.
