The 2016 Red Roses Stakes – run in 2016 as the Crown Resorts Plate – 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 fighting for $200,000 in total prize money.

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 including the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) and Group 3 Chatham Stakes (1400m) – which was previously run the Saturday before on Victoria Derby Day.

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 2016 Red Roses Stakes will be held on November 3rd.
