The All Aged Stakes is one of the last races during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival run at Royal Randwick in late April.

Held on the third Saturday in April following the action of The Championships, the Group 1 All Aged Stakes is a weight-for-age race for horses aged three-years-old and over. The race attracts a lot of good middle distance sprinters eager to combat the 1400m track in hope of winning a share of the $600,000 prize money. Many horses will come from the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) two weeks earlier to try and overcome the extra 200m added to this race.

Trapeze Artist (2018) became the first horse since Bentley Biscuit (2007) to complete the TJ Smith Stakes – All Aged Stakes double.

This autumn’s edition of the All Aged Stakes ran on Saturday April 21, 2018 and was won narrowly by the three-year-old favourite Trapeze Artist.

2018 All Aged Stakes Field Update: Darren Weir has withdrawn his import Red Cardinal (12) from the line-up, the horse having had just the one run down under when 11th in the Melbourne Cup. The galloper remains in the mix for the last at Caulfield on Saturday – the Listed Anniversary Vase (1400m), where he will carry the 60.5kg top weight, but better on soft going will only run if the track is a Good (4) or worse.

Two other horses have officially come out of the All Aged Stakes 2018 field on race morning with Clearly Innocent leaving Kris Lees with last year’s runner-up Le Romain as his only runner, while the Chris Waller-trained acceptors are down to two with Endless Drama out of contention.

All Aged Stakes History

First raced in 1866, the All Aged Stakes was won by Falcon over a distance of 1600m. This track length remained the same until 2004 when it was changed to its current length of 1400m.

The All Aged Stakes has been won by plenty of top quality horses starting with Carbine and his consecutive wins in 1889 and 1890. Another 48 years later, Ajax broke this record by winning the All Aged Stakes three years in a row in 1938 – 1940.

Two time Melbourne Cup winner Peter Pan took out the race in 1935 and the legendary Tulloch also won the race in 1958. The New Zealand horse Rough Habit won the All Aged Stakes in 1992 and 1993, however his greatest victories took place at the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.
