2024 All Aged Stakes Results

  • 1st: #11 Magic Time
  • 2nd: #7 Amenable
  • 3rd: #1 Private Eye



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 $1,500,000 prize money. The 2020 All Aged Stakes offered a reduced $480,000 in prize money due to the COVID-19 pandemic before the stakes returned to $600,000 in 2021 and then boosted to $1.5 million in 2023.

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.

The 2022 All Aged Stakes form was franked with the third-placed Ellsberg returning in the spring to win the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m), the $1 million Five Diamond Prelude and the inaugural $2 million The Five Diamonds (1800m).

The 2023 All Aged Stakes winner Giga Kick improved on a lead-up second in the TJ Smith Stakes to post his first win since taking out the previous year’s The Everest. He then franked the All Aged Stakes form with a next-up win in Brisbane’s Group 1 Doomben 10,000.

The latest edition of the All Aged Stakes ran on Saturday April 20, 2024 and was won in style by the Grahame Begg-trained mare Magic Time ($6.50) who came with a big late run on the Heavy (10) track.

  • To Win: #10 Sunshine In Paris ($4.80 at time of publish) – BET NOW

The All Aged Stakes is wide open this year, but Sunshine In Paris is a tempting choice. This four-year-old mare arrives in peak form, perfectly prepped for her third run this campaign. She boasts an impressive record at Randwick (2 wins from 4 starts) and dominated her only previous attempt at 1400m, winning the Group 1 Surround Stakes here last year. Her recent lead-up form is promising too, with narrow defeats in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) and the TJ Smith Stakes (1200m). She has the right credentials, the form lines, and is now at the right stage of her campaign to be a confident selection.

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.
