First up specialist Super Cash wins Schillaci Stakes

First up specialist Super Cash added to her outstanding fresh record with a gutsy win in the Group 2 $400,000 Keno Kwikpik Schillaci Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield today. The Andrew Noblet trained Super Cash was having her first race start since finishing tenth to Secret Agenda in the Group 1 $1m Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m)…

The Schillaci Stakes is a quality Group 2 spring race held mid-way through the coveted Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival on Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day in October.

The Schillaci Stakes is a 1100m short-distance event run under weight-for-age conditions worth a lucrative $400,000 in total prize money. There are a number of other great lead-up races held earlier in the carnival that runners may have previously contested including the Group 2 McEwen Stakes (1000m) in early September and Sydney’s Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m).

Runners may also be coming back in class but rising in distance off a Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) run under the lights at Moonee Valley a fortnight earlier.

The feature race at the meeting is the Group 1 Ladbrokes Culfield Guineas (1600m) but there are three other elite level Melbourne races on the day including the Group 1 Ladbrokes Caulfield Stakes (2000m) sponsored by Ladbrokes.com.au, Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) and the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m). Other key support races on Caulfield Guineas Day include the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) for Melbourne Cup types and Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m).

Horses that ran in the Schillaci Stakes will often continue their spring campaigns by competing in the sprint features including Flemington’s Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The 2017 Schillaci Stakes ran Saturday October 14, 2017 .

2017 Schillaci Stakes Nominations

The Schillaci Stakes nominations close on the Monday leading-up to Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day and will be detailed right here once released.

The 2017 Schillaci Stakes Nominations drew 17 early entries including the highly-rated Mick Price-trained Lankan Rupee whose injury-placed career has seen him winless since the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) in February of 2015.

Schillaci Stakes History

The first Schillaci Stakes, originally known as the Chirnside Stakes, was run in 1970 when Regal Vista claimed victory. It began as a Principal race run over six furlongs but the race distance was converted to 1200m in 1973. In 1979 the event became a Group 2 race and for one year in 1986 the race was run over 1219m. A few years later in 1988 the distance was permanently decreased to its current length of 1000m. The race name was changed to the Schillaci Stakes in 2000 in honour of the former champion sprinter Schillaci.
