Angst Stakes Next for Tibbie Stakes Winner Spirit Bird

Spirit Bird has produced a career-best effort to date to post only her second race win in the Group 3 Tibbie Stakes (1350m) in Newcastle this afternoon. Spirit Bird received steady support in 2016 Tibbie Stakes betting markets in the hours leading up to jump, and did her chances no harm when she jumped well…

The Tibbie Stakes is a 1400 sprinting event held at Newcastle Racecourse (also known as Beaumont Racecourse) on a Friday in mid-September.

The Tibbie Stakes is restricted to mares and fillies and traditionally attracts mainly Sydney-trained hopefuls. Run under set weights plus penalties conditions with total prize money of $150,000, the Tibbie Stakes can serve as a nice early lead-up to similar class and conditioned races of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

The Tibbie Stakes forms a major part of the annual two day Newcastle Racing Carnival. The Tibbie Stakes falls on the second day of the carnival, Newcastle Cup Day, on which the Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup is also held along with the Group 3 Cameron Handicap.

One of the major lead up races to the Tibbie Stakes is the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) held at Rosehill the week before. From the Tibbie Stakes, the Group 3 Angst Stakes (1600m) at Randwick over the mile in early October makes a nice target race.

The 2017 Tibbie Stakes ran on September 15, 2017.

Tibbie Stakes History

The Tibbie Stakes was inaugurated in 1990 and quickly became an important target for fillies and mares across New South Wales. Originally named the Tibbie Plate, the race received an upgraded name when its status was lifted to Listed in 2005. In 2013, the Tibbie Stakes was upgraded again to Group 3. Along with a prize increase this meant the Tibbie Stakes would now be a prime target for Sydney-stabled horses.

Notable Tibbie Stakes winners include More Strawberries (2011) and She’s Clean (2015). The Tibbie Stakes results and winning times since 2001 are below.
