The 2016 Tristarc Stakes is a quality Group 2 thoroughbred event held as part of the coveted Melbourne Spring Carnival on one of the most anticipated days of racing, Caulfield Cup Day. Taking place on a Saturday in mid-October, Caulfield Cup Day features seven quality Group races including the: Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m), Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m), Group 3 Ladbrokes Caulfield Classic (2000m), Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) and Group 3 Moonga Stakes (1400m).
The Tristarc Stakes is run over the sprint distance of 1400m by a solid field of mares under set weights plus penalties and is worth $200,000. It is a great middle distance sprint for mares heading towards prestigious events including the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Victoria Derby Day or the Group 2 Matriach Stakes (2000m) on Emirates Stakes Day. The set weight conditions that the race is run under ensures that the higher seeded females claim victory more often than not. In recent years the Tristarc Stakes has been a decent guide to the Myer Classic, with Red Tracer (2013).
The 2016 Tristarc Stakes will be run on Saturday October 15, 2016.
