Euro Angel Wins Ladies’ Day Vase

Euro Angel has produced a smart turn of foot in the final straight at Caulfield to win the Group 3 Ladies’ Day Vase (1600m) this afternoon. Euro Angel was all but forgotten in Ladies’ Day Vase betting markets in the hours leading up to jump, but the mare found an ideal position in transit as…

The 2016 Ladies Day Vase is a Group 3 mile event held at Caulfield Racecourse during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Raced over 1600m, the Ladies Day Vase is open to mares aged four years and older. Run under set weights plus penalties, the Ladies Day Vase is an effective counter to Randwick’s Angst Stakes (1600m) held a few days before under the same conditions.

The Ladies Day Vase falls on the second day of the Caulfield Cup Carnival as the feature event and is the key support race on Blue Sapphire Stakes Day, the card headlined by the lucrative and recently upgraded $350,000 Group 3 Blue Sapphire Stakes (1200m).

While most of the attention dedicated to the Caulfield Cup Carnival is focused on the other two days, Caulfield Guineas Day and Caulfield Cup Day, the Ladies Day Vase is an exciting race with an important role in the Spring Racing Carnival.

Mares tend to target the Ladies Day Vase as part of an ongoing spring campaign. Because it falls in the middle of October, most of the horses that contend the Ladies Day Vase have already had several lead up races, which makes it somewhat easier to judge form.

The Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) held at Flemington under similar conditions earlier in the month can act as a fairly good lead up race. Mares that perform well in the Ladies Day Vase might seek to contest the Group 3 Tesio Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley at the end of October.

The 2016 Ladies Day Vase will be run on Wednesday, October 12th.

Ladies Day Vase History

Inaugurated in its current format in 2006, the Ladies Day Vase has a brief history in comparison to other events at Caulfield. The Ladies Day Vase has always been held at Caulfield Racecourse, and will most likely remain the feature event of the middle day of the Caulfield Cup Carnival for some time to come.

The Ladies Day Vase provides an important opportunity for punters (and trainers) to see the participating mares perform in level company, in order to gauge their overall ability.

Originally a Listed race, the Ladies Day Vase was upgraded to Group 3 status in 2013. It was also referred to as the Snowhite Maintenance Classic for that year, and in the past as the Classic and the Perri Cutten Classic.

Notable Ladies Day Vase winners include Gawne (2006), Lady Lynette (2009), Royal Commands (2010) and Zonza (2013). Ladies Day Vase results and winning times since 2006 are listed below.
