The Roman Consul Stakes is a Group 2 race held at Sydney’s Randwick Racecourse on a Saturday in early October. Raced over a 1200m distance, the set weights race is open to all three-year-old horses eager to take home a share of the $300,000 in prize money.

Previously held on Epsom Handicap Day, the Roman Consul Stakes now takes place a week later on Spring Champion Stakes Day that is headlined by the final Group 1 race of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival – the Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) for Victoria Derby hopefuls.

Those horses that perform well in the Roman Consul Stakes often go on to race in major events such as the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) run on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Brazen Beau (2014) was the last horse to complete the Roman Consul Stakes – Coolmore Stud Stakes double. Some of the major lead-up races to the Roman Consul Stakes include the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes and the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes.

This year the 2019 Roman Consul Stakes took place on Saturday October 12, 2019 and was won by the favourite Cosmic Force.
