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 2019 runs on Saturday February 23, 2019 .

Hobartville Stakes History

First won by Amounis in 1925, the Hobartville Stakes has a long history of winners which include great champions Lonhro and Shaftesbury Avenue. Originally a seven furlong race until 1972, the Hobartville Stakes became a 1400m event in 1973 and changed from a Principal race to a Group 2 event in 1979.

A host of notable three-year-olds have won the Hobartville Stakes in recent years including Racing To Win (2006), Pierro (2013) and Astern (2016).
