The San Domenico Stakes is a Group 3 event held at Rosehill Racecourse every August for three-year-olds early on during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Raced over a short distance sprint of 1100m, the San Domenico Stakes allows progressive young sprinters to display their skills ahead of tougher spring runs in races like the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) the following month.

In recent years, the 2018 San Domenico Stakes winner Graff went on to run third in the Golden Rose Stakes that year behind The Autumn Sun while in 2019 Exceedance also finished third in the Golden Rose before winning Flemington’s Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Bivouac meanwhile finished runner-up in the San Domenico Stakes in 2019 as the beaten odds-on favourite before taking out the Run To The Rose – Golden Rose double and finishing runner-up in the Coolmore.

With a grand total of $160,000 in prize money on offer, the San Domenico Stakes is a lucrative black-type event for new season three-year-olds.

Contested under set weights plus penalties conditions, the San Domenico Stakes pits rising sprinters against each other and shows how they are placed ahead of upcoming Group 1 races for that age group.

Due to the position it holds in the calendar, the San Domenico Stakes is often contested by horses first-up after a winter spell. For this reason, the San Domenico Stakes is considered by many to be one of the major spring carnival warm up races. Most of those horses which gain entry to the San Domenico Stakes have ran successful campaigns as two year olds and expect to continue to gather black-type placings.

Often, horses that make up the San Domenico Stakes field may have come via other races such as the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes or the Golden Slipper during their juvenile racing seasons.

Decent results in the San Domenico Stakes can act as a launching pad to other races such as the  Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival, a double last achieved by the aforementioned Exceedance (2019).

The San Domenico Stakes 2020 ran Saturday August 29, 2020 and was won in outstanding fashion by the airborne Anders.

San Domenico Stakes History

The San Domenico Stakes was inaugurated in 1980, with Proud Knight seizing victory in the first edition of the race. Initially run over a length of 1000m, the race distance was briefly upgraded to 1100m for one year in 2008 and then permanently from 2011 onwards.

Gaining traction rapidly, the San Domenico Stakes held listed status for only four years, receiving an upgrade to Group 3 in 1945. In 1986, the race was upgraded again to Group 2, a class it held until 2005, when it was downgraded to Group 3.

The San Domenico Stakes has been held variously at three separate racecourses in Sydney. Since 1980, the venue has changed twelve times between Randwick, Warwick Farm and Rosehill Gardens, where it currently runs today.

In 2020 Anders set a race record winning in 1 minute 2.67 seconds to sit just outside the track record set back in 2007.

Notable San Domenico Stakes winners include Show County (1989), Testa Rossa (1999), Snitzerland (2012) and Exceedance (2019). San Domenico Stakes results since 2000 are listed below.
