Due to run as Eagle Farm Race ...

The 2016 George Moore Stakes is a Group 3 sprint held at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane in early December as one of the key summer features in Queensland.

Held under quality handicap conditions, the George Moore Stakes is raced over 1200m in a thrilling competition for $200,000 prize money.

The George Moore Stakes is open to contention by horses of all ages and sexes. It shares a race program with only one other black-type event, the Listed Mode Stakes (1200m) for three-year-old fillies at set weights.

Some runners use the event as a first-up race after a spell in the paddock while others might be racing off the back of a spring carnival down south in NSW and Victoria.

Horses that run well in the George Moore Stakes field may head to Sydney for a shot at the $250,000 Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) a fortnight later at Royal Randwick.

The 2016 George Moore Stakes will be run on December 3.

2016 George Moore Stakes History

The George Moore Stakes was previously known as the Summer Stakes. The George Moore Stakes has traditionally been a part of a trio of group races that form the Queensland summer racing series. The other two are the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1300m) and the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m).

It was inaugurated in 1979 as a Group 3 race, but was demoted to listed status in 1983. In 2000, the George Moore Stakes was reinstated as a Group 3 race.

Throughout the years, the George Moore Stakes has gone by a variety of names. From its inception to 1986 the race was called the XXXX Stakes. It has also been named the Thornhill Park Stakes, LJ Williams Quality Handicap and AWA Stakes. Between 2000 and 2006, as well as several years previously, it was called the Summer Stakes.

Notable George Moore Stakes winners include Princess Reichen (1979), Mirraben (1987, 88, 89), Chief De Beers (1994, 97), Takeover Target (2005) and Lucky Hussler (2013). George Moore Stakes results, place getters and winning times since 2000 are provided below.
