Moonee Valley Vase News
The Moonee Valley Vase is a highly regarded Group 2 race held towards the end of the coveted Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival on Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day at Moonee Valley in late October. The feature race of the day is the Group 1 Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) but there are a host of other quality Group races held at the meeting including the Moonee Valley Vase.
The Moonee Valley Vase is a staying race run over 2040m by three-year-olds at set weights and is worth $300,000 in total prize money. Runners may have previously contested some of the other set weights races for three-year-olds earlier in the carnival including the Group 3 Caulfield Classic (2000m) on Caulfield Cup Day or Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley in late September.
The Moonee Valley Vase is commonly used as a final preparation race for horses moving on to one of the highlight events of the carnival, the prestigious Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) held the following week at Flemington.
Some fillies that contested the Vase may instead choose to run in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes also on Derby Day because of its more suitable 2000m distance. Efficient (2006) was the last horse to complete the Moonee Valley Vase – VRC Derby double. More recently, the 2018 MV Vase winner Stars of Carrum finished runner-up in the VRC Derby results next start.
In 2017 smart filly Aloisia won the Moonee Valley Vase after a Group 1 Thousand Guineas victory at Caulfield.
In 2019 MV Vase winner Soul Patch went on to run third in that year’s Victoria Derby trifecta and the following year’s Group 1 Australian Guineas.
The 2020 Moonee Valley Vase takes place Ladbrokes on Cox Plate Day – Saturday October 24, 2020 .
