Held during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival in March, the Magic Night Stakes is a Group 3 sprint for two year old fillies. As a set weights race, the fillies are required to carry 55.5kg over the 1200m distance at Rosehill Racecourse. Worth $175,000 in prize money, the event is run on Coolmore Classic Day.

The meeting is headlined by the $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) for fillies and mares. Other support races held on the card include the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m), the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) and the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) which is the colts & gelding’s equivalent to the Magic Night Stakes.

The Magic Night Stakes winner is exempt from ballot for the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) which is held in one week’s time. It is a final chance for fillies to make the field for the world’s richest two-years-old race. The last Golden Slipper winner to back-up off a Magic Night Stakes run was Calaway Gal (2nd in 2002), but a number of Magic Night Stakes graduates have placed in the Golden Slipper in recent years.

The Magic Night Stakes 2017 ran on March 11, 2017.
