Kentucky Miss onto Oaks Day after Cap D’Antibes Stakes Win

Sydney trainer Joe Pride will consider a Crown Oaks Day run at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival after the gutsy win of his diminutive but tough filly Kentucky Miss in the 2016 Cap D’Antibes Stakes.

The 2015 Red Roses Stakes is a 1100m sprint held at Flemington Racecourse during the Melbourne Cup Carnival in November each year.

A Group 3 event, the Red Roses Stakes is held under set weights and penalties conditions and is restricted to three year old fillies.

The Red Roses Stakes is held on Crown Oaks Day, the third day of the four day Melbourne Cup Carnival. It shares the race program with four other black type races, the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m), Group 3 Begonia Belle Stakes (1100m), Listed Batman Handicap (1800m) and Listed Century Stakes (1000m).

Fillies tend to gravitate towards the Red Roses Stakes following a wide variety of preparations. Most will have been racing on the Melbourne circuit in the weeks prior, although some might make the journey from Sydney or elsewhere. The Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m) held at Flemington in September has proven to be a mildly accurate lead up race. The Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic (1600m) might be targeted by some of the handier types on their way.

Following the Red Roses Stakes, some fillies might head to the paddock for a rest, while others might choose to extend their campaign. The Listed Twilight Glow Stakes (1400m) at Sandown is one potential future target, while some might head over to Western Australia for the WA Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m) at Ascot in mid-November.

The 2015 Red Roses Stakes will be held on November 5th.
