The Pago Pago Stakes is a Group 2 event held at Rosehill Racecourse during the annual Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Worth $175,000 in prize money, the 1200m sprint event is held in March on Coolmore Classic Day. The meeting is host to the Group 1 $600,000 Coolmore Classic (1500m) as well as a number of Group 2 and 3 status support acts.

The Pago Pago Stakes is a set weights race for two year old colts and geldings and each horse is required to carry 55.5kg for the race. The event is also the final lead up race to the lucrative Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) held in one week’s time and as a result the Pago Pago Stakes winner is exempt from ballot for the Golden Slipper, which is the world’s richest race for two-year-olds. The Group 3 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) for two-year-old fillies is the other Coolmore Classic Day race offering a Golden Slipper ballot exemption to the winner.

Stratum (2005) was the last horse to complete the Pago Pago Stakes – Golden Slipper double. A good lead-up to the first leg is the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) run a week earlier at Randwick and many of the runners in the Pago Pago Stakes field will come via that or the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) on Chipping Norton Stakes Day.
