The 2016 Sir John Monash Stakes is held each year around July at the esteemed Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne. A Group 3 race, the Sir John Monash Stakes pays total prize money of $150,000. The Sir John Monash Stakes is one of the few races run during the heart of winter at Caulfield. The racecourse tends to get much more active around the middle of August as the Spring Racing Carnival approaches.

Raced over a brief 1100m, the Sir John Monash Stakes is a true test of sprinting talent, pitting talented sprinters against each other in an entertaining weight for age contest.

The feature race of the day, there are no other black type races held on the same day. While there are plenty of races hosted at Caulfield that pay far more significant prize money, the Sir John Monash Stakes still attracts a talented field, largely due to its spot in the calendar and the number of horses who stay working through winter.

There aren’t a lot of races to look to for form. However, the Queensland Winter Carnival ends around the same time as Sir John Monash Stakes Day, so there is the possibility of horses making the journey from up north. However, due to the relatively small purse on offer, most runners are local.

The 2016 Sir John Monash Stakes will be held on Saturday, July 16th.

Sir John Monash Stakes History

The Sir John Monash Stakes was upgraded from a Listed race to a Group 3 race following the 2013 edition. Hosted by the Melbourne Racing Club, it is one of the regular races at Caulfield Racecourse. The Sir John Monash Stakes was run over 1000m until the 2005 edition, when it was first held over 1100m.

The Sir John Monash Stakes was known as the Moondah Stakes up until it ran for the first time under its current name in 1998, when Jugulator won it. Originally run by the Victorian Amateur Turf Club (est 1875), the race is now run by the Melbourne Racing Club (MRC), since the organisation’s name was changed in 2002.

Notable Sir John Monash Stakes winners include Regal Shot (2001), Rubitano (2002), Super Elegant (2004 & 2005) and Platelet (2012). Super Elegant finished third in 2003 and second in 2006, narrowly missing out on winning for four years running. Rubiton had a good result in 2002, with the first three places being taken out by his progeny, Rubitano, Ruby Slipper and Prince Rubiton.
