The Maurcie McCarten Stakes is a Group 3 sprint run under open quality handicap conditions at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Coolmore Classic Day each March.

Run during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, the meeting is headlined by the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) and features six Group status support acts including the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m), Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1200m0, the lucrative $350,000 Group 3 Sky High Stakes (2000m) and the Maurice McCarten Stakes.

Run over 1100m the Group 3 Maurice McCarten Stakes field may feature first-up runners kicking off their autumn campaigns or horses coming off an earlier autumn lead-up in a race like the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) in Melbourne at Flemington in February.

After the event Maurice McCarten Stakes graduates may back-up in something like the Group 3 Sebring Stakes (1200m) back at the track at the end of the month. Tougher targets like the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill a fortnight after the Maurice McCarten Stakes might also be included in better sprinters’ campaigns.
