Spring Champion Option for 2016 Gloaming Stakes Winner Veladero

The Chris Waller stable will consider backing in-form colt Veladero up in the 2016 Spring Champion Stakes in a fortnight’s time after his gutsy win in the Gloaming Stakes 2016 at Rosehill Racecourse.

The 2016 Gloaming Stakes is a Group 3 race held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival in late September.

The Gloaming Stakes is run under set weights conditions over 1800m and is only open to three-year-olds, offering $200,000 in total prize money.

The Gloaming Stakes is held on Golden Pendant Day alongside five other black-type events. These include the Group 2 $400,000 Golden Pendant (1400m) for fillies and mares, the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) also for three-year-olds, Group 2 Shannon Stakes (1500m), Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality (2400m) for stayers and Listed Reginald Allen Quality (1400m).

One of the major lead up events to the Gloaming Stakes is the Group 3 Newcastle Spring Stakes (1600m) held under the same conditions a couple of weeks before. Some fillies often contest the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) prior to the Gloaming as well.

Many of the more successful runners in the Gloaming Stakes go on to challenge the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m). Often, horses will contend the Gloaming Stakes before heading south to target Flemington’s Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The 2016 Gloaming Stakes will be held on September 24th.

Gloaming Stakes History

Inaugurated in 1978, the Gloaming Stakes has an extensive history of exciting racing and tight results. The Gloaming Stakes is named after Gloaming, who along with Desert Gold previously held the Australasian record of 19 successive wins. Out of 67 starts, Gloaming won 57 and came second 9 times.

The Gloaming Stakes has had a relatively stable history in terms of race location and status. Because of its set weights status and restriction to three year olds, the Gloaming Stakes has long held an important place in NSW racing as a major event to watch and a fertile breeding ground of young black-type winners.

Notable Gloaming Stakes winners include Sky Chase (1987), Tie The Knot (1997), So You Think (2009) and It’s A Dundeel (2012). Gloaming Stakes results and winning times since 2000 are listed below.
