The Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes is held at the start of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival in early September. Conducted at the esteemed Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, it is one of three Group 2 status races at the meeting along with the Theo Marks Stakes and the Run To The Rose for Golden Rose Stakes hopefuls.

Named after the prolific New South Wales thoroughbred owner-breeder Stan Fox, the Stan Fox Stakes is a 1500m run for three-year-olds at set weights that is worth $200,000. It is seen as a high quality set weights event, and although it is not one of the carnival’s premier races, it still attracts a good standard of horses. Notable winners include Lonhro (2001), Kenwood Melody (1998), General Nediym (1997), Octagonal (1995) and Show County (1989).

Many Stan Fox Stakes contenders are at the start of their Sydney spring campaign and are on way to the premier three-year-olds’ race at the carnival, the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose at Rosehill or Melbourne’s Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) the following month. Before the Stan Fox Stakes date was changed to earlier in the season, a number of Golden Rose champions have ended with a win in the Stan Fox including Denman (2009), Court Command (2006) and Paratroopers (2005).

The latest edition of the Stan Fox Stakes ran on September 9, 2017.

Stan Fox Stakes History

The inaugural winner of the Stan Fox Stakes was Hydahban when the event was first held as a Principal race over 1200m in 1975.

The status and distance of the race remained the same up until 1981 when the length was increased to 1400m and then in 1985 it became a Listed race. Not long after in 1989 the event gained Group 3 status before finally being installed as a Group 2 event in 1996.

The race was not held in 2007 due to the outbreak of equine influenza in Australia at the time.

Stan Fox Stakes Records
Time Record (over current distance of 1400m): 1:21.7 set by Dynamic Love in 2000
Most Successful Jockey: Rod Quinn has won four Stan Fox Stakes with Big Treat (1977), From The Planet (1988), Lonhro (2001) and Ambulance (2003).
