The 2016 Tibbie Stakes is a 1350m 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 $125,000, 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), again at Rosehill, is a popular target.
The 2016 Tibbie Stakes will be run on September 16th.

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 Expresso Rose (2001) and Vaquera (2013). The Tibbie Stakes results and winning times since 2001 are below.
