The 2017 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 The BMW 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 The BMW (2400m) and Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).

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

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.

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.

The Star Kingdom Stakes 2017 ran on Saturday March 25, 2017.

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.
