The VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is a 1400m sprint race four two-year-olds at set weights worth $200,000 in prize money. The young sprinters contesting the Sires Produce Stakes may have previously competed in the most prestigious race for two-year-olds at the carnival, the Group 1 $1.5 million Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) a fortnight earlier at Caulfield.
