The Group Two 2016 Sunline Stakes is named in honour of the champion mare Sunline, which was the world’s highest earning female horse of her time. In a total of 48 career starts, Sunline won 32 races in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong making her total career earnings over $11 million.

Run over a 1600m distance, the weight-for-age race is held specifically for fillies and mares aged three years and over. Worth $200,000 in prize money, the event is held at the same Friday night meeting as the Group One William Reid Stakes during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival at Moonee Valley Racecourse. The Sunline Stakes is regarded as a good lead-up race to the Group Three Mannerism Stakes and the Frances Tressady Stakes, both 1400m races for mares are held at Flemington in March.

The Sunline Stakes 2016 will run on Friday March 24, 2016.
