The Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic is a 1600m middle-distance event held at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day in late October during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Open only to three-year-old fillies, the set weights showdown is worth $300,000 in total prize money and makes a nice lead-up to the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) the following weekend at Flemington on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The headline race at the meeting is the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), while the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic is one of the other Group races on the card making for an ace day for the punters.

Many fillies in the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic field come via a run in either the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) held at Flemington three weeks before or the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield two weeks before Cox Plate Day.

The Moonee Valley Fillies Classic 2019 ran on Saturday October 26, 2019 and resulted in a dead heat between La Falaise and Fascino.

Moonee Valley Fillies Classic History

Also known as the Woodstock Mile, Woodstock Classic, Hollylodge Classic, and the Moonee Valley Oaks, the race is now regarded by many as the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic. The first race in 1998 resulted in a dead heat between the two winners; Kensington Palace and Champagne. The race date was shifted from March to October in 2012, resulting in two editions for that year.

Originally a Listed race in 1998, the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic quickly became a Group 3 event in 1999 until 2000 and then changed to Group 2 status in 2001. Up until 2004, the race was a stayer’s event over a 2040 distance. It was then reduced to a mile in 2005 and then to 1500m in 2006. In 2010 the Moonee Valley Oaks race distance was changed to 1600m.

In 2019 the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic resulted in a dead-heat between Fascino and La Falaise.

Notable Moonee Valley Fillies Classic winners include Sunline (1999), Lights Of Heaven (2011), My Poppette (2015) and Mystic Journey (2018) who went on to win the Australian Guineas – All-Star Mile double in the autumn. The Moonee Valley Fillies Classic results since 2000 are detailed below.
