Cockram Stakes

The 2018 Cockram Stakes is a 1200m sprint held at Caulfield Racecourse.



The 2018 Cockram Stakes is a Group 3 sprinting event run at Caulfield Racecourse on Memsie Stakes Day in late August.

Raced over 1200m, the Cockram Stakes is one of the first sprint events in the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and is restricted to mares only. Run under set weights with penalties, the Cockram Stakes provides punters with an opportunity to assess the form of mares likely to continue to compete at higher levels during the season.

Mares usually contest the Cockram Stakes once they’re on the way to form following a few other starts. Success in the Cockram Stakes is often followed up by entries into other races such as the Group 3 Let’s Elope Stakes, Group 3 How Now Stakes, and Group 2 Stocks Stakes.

The Cockram Stakes is held on Memsie Stakes Day shares its race program with three other Group races. These are the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m), Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes and Group 3 The Heath 1100. 

The Cockram Stakes 2018 will be run on Saturday September 1st.

Cockram Stakes Odds

Cockram Stakes History

The inaugural edition of the Cockram Stakes was in 1992, when successful mare Pride Of Demus seized victory in her third start as a four year old. Those horses that gain entry to the Cockram Stakes field are usually fairly talented mares with decent racing experience in their history.

Originally held at Sandown Park Racecourse for two years, the 1994 Cockram Stakes was held at Caulfield. It returned to Sandown again for two years in 1995. Then the race went back to Caulfield for 1997. In 1998, Sandown Park was once again the host, and remained so until 2002, when Caulfield once again resumed its hosting of the race. Since then, the Cockram Stakes has always been held at Caulfield.

For the 2005 edition, the Cockram Stakes was upgraded from listed status to Group 3, which it has held since.

Notable winners of the Cockram Stakes include Pride Of Demus (1992), Brief Embrace (2003), Storm Alert (2006) and Octavia (2013). Cockram Stakes results since 2000 are listed below.
