The Millie Fox Stakes is a 1300m sprint held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Hobartville Stakes Day in February during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

The Group 2 race is open only to fillies and mares aged three years and older, is run at set weights plus penalties and offers $200,000 in total prize money. Runners may come into the Millie Fox Stakes field first-up or off an earlier autumn run in a race like Randwick’s Group 2 Breeders’ Classic (1200m).

The Millie Fox Stakes shares its race card with two other Group 2 races: the Group 2 $400,000 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) for Randwick Guineas-bound three-year-olds and the Group 2 $250,000 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) for the young Golden Slipper Stakes hopefuls.

Many of the better performed female gallopers out of the Millie Fox Stakes will continue onto bigger things in the autumn such as a run in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) or the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) in March.

The Millie Fox Stakes 2018 ran on Saturday February 24, 2018 and was won in a tough effort by Daysee Doom.

Millie Fox Stakes History

The inaugural edition of the Millie Fox Stakes was held in 1996, with Chlorophyll taking out the race that year. The race is named after Millie Fox, the wife of renowned owner and breeder Stan Fox, for whom the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes is named. Millie was a big fan of horse racing, and took over management of her husband’s Nebo Lodge Stables following his death.

Initially a listed race, the Millie Fox Stakes was upgraded to a Group 3 event in 2007 and held that status until 2013. For the 2013 edition of the race, it was upgraded to Group 2. From its inception until 2006 the race was held over a distance of 1200m, as opposed to today’s 1300m. The race name has changed slightly over the years, varying from Millie Fox Plate to Millie Fox Handicap, but always retaining the name of Millie Fox.

Notable Millie Fox Stakes winners include Tivoli Dancer (2005), Montana Flyer (2010, 2011), Red Tracer (2012, 2013, 2014) and First Seal (2016).
