The 2016 Tea Rose Stakes is a Group 2 race held mid-way through the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival in September.

Taking place on George Main Stakes Day at Royal Randwick, the Tea Rose Stakes is one of  five Group races held at the meeting. Also run on the day are the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m), Group 2 The Shorts (1100m), Group 2 Hill Stakes (1900m) and Group 3 Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m).

A middle-distance race run over 1400m, the Tea Rose Stakes is for three-year-old fillies at set weights and is worth $175 000. A good lead-up race to the Tea Rose Stakes is the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1400m) two weeks before at Randwick. The Furious Stakes has proved a fantastic guide to the Tea Rose Stakes in recent years, with many fine fillies claiming victory in both races including Samantha Miss (2008), Mnemosyne (2005), Prisoner Of Love (2004), Shamekha (2003) and Victory Vein (2002).

Quality fillies that run well in the Tea Rose Stakes usually progress on to the premier fillies’ event at the carnival, the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Epsom Handicap Day a fortnight later. The Tea Rose Stakes is an ideal preparation to this showcase race for females, with many punters placing a bet on the Tea Rose Stakes / Flight Stakes double. Fillies to win both races include Samantha Miss (2008), Cheeky Choice (2006), Ha Ha (2001) and Unworldy (2000).

Tea Rose Stakes History

First run in 1980, the inaugural winner of the Tea Rose Stakes was Dark Eclipse. It began as a Listed race run over 1400m but soon gained Group 3 status in 1983. The race distance was increased in 1985 to 1500m when the Tea Rose Stakes became a Group 2 event. From 1990 – 1991 the race was run over the increased distance of 1550m before reverting back to 1500m in 1992. In 2007 the race was not held due to equine influenza. From 2013 onwards, the Tea Rose Stakes has been raced over 1400m as opposed to the previous 1500m.

Three top class fillies have managed to win the Furious Stakes / Tea Rose Stakes / Flight Stakes treble, they are Unwordly (2000), Danglissa (1999) and Sunline (1998).
