The Vamos Stakes is a Group 3 race for fillies and mares run at Launceston Racecourse each February during the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival.

Held on the same day as the Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m), the Vamos Stakes is run over 1400m and offers $150,000 in total prize money.

The Launceston Group 3 is contested under weight-for-age conditions by field dominated by local Tasmanian-trained fillies and mares coming off a run in a race like the Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy (1200m) run at Hobart a fortnight earlier. In 2016 I Love It backed up from a second in the Bow Mistress to win the Vamos Stakes, while in 2017 Lyuba ran second in both races. In 2019 the Bow Mistress was won by the previous year’s Vamos Stakes winner Life On The Wire, who also placed third to Twitchy Frank in the 2019 Vamos Stakes results.

The best out of the Vamos Stakes field may head to Adelaide for a shot at the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville in the winter, a race the 2016 Vamos Stakes winner I Love It finished third to Precious Gem in. I Love It also returned in the Vamos Stakes of 2017 to finish third on the back of her Bow Mistress third in the same year.

The Vamos Stakes 2020 took place Launceston Racecourse on Wednesday February 26, 2020 and was won by the odds-on favourite Deroche.

Vamos Stakes History

The Vamos Stakes is a relatively young Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival black-type having first taken place in 2007 as a Listed event when Lekitama won. Since then notable Vamos Stakes winners include triple champion Lady Lynette (2009 & 2011-12) and I Love It (2016). The race gained Group 3 status in 2014 and continues to attract better gallopers each season.
