The Group 3 2017 Carbine Club Stakes is a 1600m race held at Flemington Racecourse on Victoria Derby Day.

Held under set weights plus penalties conditions, the Carbine Club Stakes is restricted to three year old horses and pays a healthy $200,000 prize money.

The Carbine Club Stakes shares a race program with eight other black-type races, four of which are Group 1. The race schedule includes the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m), Group 1 Cantala Stakes (1600m), Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) and Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m).

The Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) can act as a fairly effective lead up race to the Carbine Club Stakes. Some horses choose to target the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) prior to stepping down in grade for this race.

Following their run in the Carbine Club Stakes, there are a number of available avenues for horses to pursue. Some head to the paddock, while others stay on for what’s left of the spring racing carnival. The Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) is one of the elite options for the young milers.

The 2017 Carbine Club Stakes will be held on Saturday, April 1st.

Carbine Club Stakes History

The Carbine Club Stakes is traditionally the first race on the Derby Day schedule. As a result, it is the first event in the four day Flemington Racing Carnival and sets the tone for the massive Group 1 events to follow.

The Carbine Club Stakes was made a listed event in 1983, with Freeze taking it out that year. It was upgraded to Group 3 in 1998, with Toy Carousel the winner.

The Carbine Club Stakes has in the past been sponsored by Inglis.

Notable Carbine Club winners include Brave Salute (1984), Perfect Harmony (1994), Delago Brom (2002) and Mr Chard (2010). In recent history, a large number of horses who appear in the top three Carbine Club Stakes results have also gone on to place in the Sandown Guineas.

Perhaps the most renowned Carbine Club Stakes winners of all is Saintly, who took victory in 1995. Trained by Bart Cummings, Saintly went on to win or place in 21 of 23 starts (winning 10). Some of his scalps include the Group 1 Australian Cup, Group 1 Cox Plate and Group 1 Melbourne Cup.
