Solicit Claims Commanding Summoned Stakes Win

Popular mare Solicit has delivered a talented field defeat in the final race at Sandown this afternoon; kicking clear with complete ease to take out the Group 3 Summoned Stakes (1500m).

Solicit was transferred to the care of Gerald Ryan in search of a maiden Group 1 victory this time, and while unable to complete that feat, entered the 2015 ...

The 2015 Summoned Stakes is a Group 3 race held at Sandown Racecourse towards the end of the Spring Racing Carnival.

Raced over 1500m, the Summoned Stakes is held under set weights plus penalties conditions. Entry is restricted to mares aged four years and older.

With $150,000 prize money on offer, and as the only mares-only event held on the card, the Summoned Stakes is quite a popular target.

The Summoned Stakes is held on Zipping Classic Day, which is one of the biggest days of racing at Sandown Racecourse during the year. Other races on the program include the Group 2 Zipping Classic (1400m), Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m), Group 3 Sandown Stakes (1500m), Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m), Group 3 Kevin Heffernan Stakes (1300m) and three listed events, including the 3200m Sandown Cup.

Mares are typically pointed towards the Summoned Stakes at the tail end of a lengthy spring campaign. As Zipping Classic Day is essentially the last day of black-type racing in Melbourne for the spring, it’s a popular race for mares looking for some more prize money or further glory.

Typical lead up races include the Group 3 Ladies Day Vase (1600m) and, for handier types, the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m). The Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) held on Derby Day has in recent times proved to be a relatively decent guide.

The 2015 Summoned Stakes will be run on November 14th.

2015 Summoned Stakes Nominations

The Summoned Stakes nominations draw horses from all around, but largely from Melbourne stables. Although it is not at all uncommon for Sydney horses who are down south for the spring to enter the Summoned Stakes nominations.

The 2015 Summoned Stakes nominations will be published below.

Summoned Stakes History

The Summoned Stakes was previously a listed race. However, years of consistently high quality fields and decent racing led to the ARB upgrading the event to Group 3 prior to the 2013 edition.

It has developed a reputation for being an exciting race that attracts some of the standout mares of the spring racing carnival.

In 2013, the Summoned Stakes was held at Caulfield Racecourse due to upgrades taking place at Sandown.

In the future, the Summoned Stakes will very likely be further upgraded as it becomes a more popular end-of-season target for decent mares.

Notable Summoned Stakes winners include Tolanda (1995), It’s Platonic (2000), Umber (2005) and Floria (2013).
