2017 ATC Oaks Favourite La Bella Diosa Wins Surround Stakes

2017 ATC Oaks Favourite La Bella Diosa Wins Surround Stakes

The visiting Kiwi filly La Bella Diosa kicked off her Australian Oaks 2017 campaign in perfect fashion at Royal Randwick on Saturday taking out the Surround Stakes on Chipping Norton Stakes Day. Prepared at Rangiora by Mandy & Matt Brown, the well-bred daughter of So You Think debuted down under in Sydney’s $200,000 Group 2…

The Surround Stakes is a quality Group 2 race held towards the start of the prestigious Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival on Chipping Norton Stakes Day at Royal Randwick in late February or early March. The meeting is headlined by the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) and also features a host of other support races including the Surround Stakes for three-year-old fillies.

Run over 1400m, the Surround Stakes is a set weights race offering $200,000 in total prize money. Fillies that previously contested the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) at Randwick earlier in the autumn may be looking for a step up in distance here on their way to some of the more prestigious and lucrative three-year-old races at the carnival, including taking on the boys in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) the following week.

Other possible runs for Surround Stakes fillies later in the season include the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) against the older mares and the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill at the end of March.

The Surround Stakes 2017 ran on Saturday February 25, 2017.

For one year in 1990 the Surround Stakes was downgraded to a Group 3 race again but regained Group 2 status the following year in 1991.
