Triscay Stakes News
The Triscay Stakes is a Group 3 race run at Royal Randwick in early February during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
The event is a 1200m sprint race open to mares aged four-years-old and over and is run under quality handicap conditions. The Triscay Stakes offers $150,000 in total prize money and takes place as part of Apollo Stakes Day.
Apollo Stakes Day features four Group status races headlined by the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m). The other key events on the card include the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m), the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) and the Triscay Stakes.
Mares in the Triscay Stakes field may be kicking off their autumn campaigns and could back-up the following month at Rosehill Gardens in the Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m) for fillies and mares. The best out of the race may also continue onto the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) in mid-March.
The Triscay Stakes 2018 ran on Saturday February 17, 2018 and was won by Faraway Town.

2018 Triscay Stakes Tips
- 1st: #8 My Country
- 2nd: #10 Faraway Town
- 3rd: #2 Eckstein
MY COUNTRY ($6) is the early Triscay Stakes market mover and has definite claims to break a notable drought with a win here. The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Poet’s Voice four-year-old hasn’t won since last October, but her lead-up third in the Magic Millions Fillies & Mares (1300M) in January was excellent. Freshened-up since and from barrier three can get the job done. FARAWAY TOWN ($6.50) is also being kept safe in betting after the consistent Not A Single Doubt mare’s first-up Randwick win over 1200m on January 20. Right track and has the good finishing burst to challenge. ECKSTEIN (45.50) is up in the weights with 58kg here, but this is her pet distance (5:4-0-0) and she also brings in that Magic Millions F&M (2nd) formline.

Triscay Stakes History
The Triscay Stakes has been run since 1995 making it a relatively new race on the Australian Racing Calander. It is hosted by the Australian Turf Club (ATC) and is named after former star filly Triscay who completed the 1991 Queensland Guineas – Queensland Oaks double. It has been known by a number of different names including the Triscay Fillies and MAres Quality Handicap (1995) and the Triscay Fillies and Mares Quality Stakes (1996 – 2005).
The event started as a Listed race before gaining its current Group 3 status in 2014. It has been run at Royal Randwick since 2014 and was previously held at Rosehill Gardens, Canterbury Park and Warwick Farm Racecourse.
Notable Triscay Stakes winners include Victory Vein (2004), Hot Danish (2008) and Thump (2015).
