Concorde Stakes

The 2017 Concorde Stakes is a Group 3 sprint held at Royal Randwick Racecourse.



The 2017 Concorde Stakes is a Group 3 sprint held at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney. Raced over a short distance of 1000 metres, the Concorde Stakes is an exciting sprint that really tests the abilities of some of the more talented horses on the Sydney circuit.

Open to horses of both sexes aged three years and older, the Concorde Stakes is run under set weights with penalties. The Concorde Stakes is held on Chelmsford Stakes Day and shares the race card with four other Group races. These include three Group 2 events: the Chelmsford Stakes (1600m), Furious Stakes (1200m) and the Tramway Stakes (1400m). There is also one other Group 3 event on the day, the Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap (1400m).

Those horse who perform particularly well in the Concorde Stakes might go on to target the Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) back at the track a fortnight later.

The 2017 Concorde Stakes will be run on Saturday September 2nd.

Concorde Stakes History

The Concorde Stakes became a listed race in 1990 following one year as an unlisted event. Alpine Flyer won the inaugural edition in 1989. Registered as the Concorde Stakes, the race has never really been known by any other sponsor name. In 1997, the Concorde Stakes was upgraded to Group 3 and has held this status since.

Initially held at Rosehill Racecourse, the Concorde Stakes shifted to Warwick Farm for the 2011 and 2012 editions. Since 2013 it has been held at Royal Randwick Racecourse. Initially raced over 1100m, in 2013 the Concorde Stakes began to be held over 1000m.

Notable Concorde Stakes winners include Guineas (1999), Armidale (1997) and Joanne (1991). Concorde Stakes results since 2000 are listed below.
