The Star Kingdom Stakes – formerly known as the Sebring Stakes – is a Group 3 race for sprinters run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in late March on Tancred Stakes Day.

Offering $150,000 in prize money the 1200m event is run under quality handicap conditions and takes place at the same Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival meeting as the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) and Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).

Horses in the Star Kingdom Stakes field may be heading towards a Group 1 run later in the autumn or in the upcoming Brisbane Winter Carnival. In 2016 the Star Kingdom Stakes winner Malaguerra won the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) in May and also took out the spring’s Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

A nice lead-up race to the Star Kingdom Stakes is the Group 3 Maurcie McCarten Stakes (1100m) held at the track a fortnight earlier.

During the autumn many Star Kingdom Stakes graduates step-up in distance for a shot at the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick in April, a race the 2107 winner Jungle Edge ran third in next race.

The Star Kingdom Stakes 2018 ran on Saturday March 31, 2018 and was won first-up by the mare Spright.

2018 Star Kingdom Stakes Field

The Star Kingdom Stakes field attracts a smart field of sprinters, many of which go on to contest tougher races over the coming months during the autumn and winter racing carnivals.

The official 2018 Star Kingdom Stakes field and barriers are out on Wednesday March 28, 2018  and will be published in full below as soon as released by Racing NSW.

The Star Kingdom Stakes 2018 Final Field drew 14 acceptors before the early withdrawal of Mick Price’s widely-drawn Bassett (13). Heading the updated markets on the Star Kingdom field is John Thompson’s mare Nieta taking on the boys, while Burning Passion from the inside alley coming off a close third in the Liverpool City Cup could prove the value.

Star Kingdom Stakes History

The Star Kingdom Stakes has been run and won since 1979 and the inaugural winner was The Judge. Since then quality sprinters including Mustard (2006), Swift Alliance (2010-11), Flamberge (2014) and Malaguerra (2016) have added their names to the list of Star Kingdom Stakes winners.

Also known in recent years as the Sebring Stakes (1010-2014), the event is named in honour of five time Leading Australian sire Star Kingdom whose progeny won the first five editions of the Golden Slipper Stakes. The race has been contested over both 1100m and 1200m.
