The 2016 Tulloch Stakes is an exciting Group 2 race held midway through the illustrious Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival on the famous Golden Slipper Day in early April. Golden Slipper Day is the richest and most anticipated race meeting of the Sydney Autumn Carnival, featuring an incredible five Group 1 races including the Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m), The BMW (2400m), Storm Queen Stakes (2000m), George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1500m).
The Tulloch Stakes is the final Group status race of the day at the Rosehill Gardens racecourse. Run over the middle-distance of 2000m, it is for three-year-old colts and geldings at set weights and offers $175,000 in prizemoney. Held one week before the Group 1 AJC Derby (2400m) at Randwick, the Tulloch Stakes gives three-year-old males one last run over 2000m to prepare for the feature event. Over the years the Tulloch Sakes has been a decent guide to the AJC Derby and the last horse to take out both races was Starcraft in 2004.
The Tulloch Stakes 2016 will be run on Saturday March 26, 2016.
