The 2019 George Moore Stakes is a Group 3 sprint currently held at Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane in late November or early December as one of the key summer features in Queensland.

Held under quality handicap conditions, the George Moore Stakes is raced over 1200m and offers $200,000 in total prize money. The race takes place on the same day as Perth’s $1 million Winterbottom Stakes.

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 Plate (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 Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) a fortnight later at Royal Randwick.

The 2019 George Moore Stakes ran on Saturday November 30, 2019 at Doomben Racecourse and was won narrowly by Chapter And Verse.

2019 George Moore Stakes Field

The George Moore Stakes field is released the Wednesday before the race. Each season some very handy Queensland sprinters feature in the final George Moore Stakes field coming off lead-up runs including the Listed Keith Noud Quality Handicap (1200m) in late November. In 2016 Most Important improved on a lead-up third in the Keith Noud to win the George Moore Stakes when both races ran at Eagle Farm Racecourse. In 2018 the Keith Noud also produced the George Moore Stakes winner with I’m A Rippa improving on a lead-up third with both races run at Doomben. The Keith Noud form held again in the 2019 George Moore Stakes results with the winner Chapter And Verse coming off a lead-up fourth in the race, won by Outback Barbie who ran a narrow second in the George Moore.

The official 2019 George Moore Stakes Final Field & Barriers will be announced in full below once released on the Wednesday of race week by Queensland Racing.

The George Moore Stakes 2019 field features 16 gallopers with Crack Me Up to carry the hefty 60kg topweight from out wide in barrier 15.

Last start Keith Noud Quality winner Outback Barbie remains the firm favourite despite her wide gate 13 draw for jockey Jim Byrne, while the Desleigh Forster-trained Chapter And Verse is the early market mover coming up trumps in barrier two.

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, placegetters and winning times since 2000 are provided below.
