The Group 1 ATC Champagne Stakes is the final two-year-old Group status race of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Held at Randwick Racecourse on All Aged Stakes Day in mid to late April, the 1600m Champagne Stakes is worth $500,000 in prize money. As a set weights race for juveniles, colts and geldings must carry 56.5kg and fillies must carry 54.5kg. The 2020 edition of the Champagne Stakes was worth a reduced $400,000 due to the COVID-19 pandemic before returning to $500,000 in prize money for 2021.

The mile clash takes place on the same day as the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) and is run on the Saturday after The Championships finish-up at Royal Randwick. The key lead-up into the Champagne Stakes field is the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) held a fortnight earlier and recent winners of the double include King’s Legacy (2020), Guelph (2013), Pierro (2012) and Helmet (2011).

The 2022 Champagne Stakes ran at Royal Randwick on Saturday April 16, 2022 and saw the Anthony Cummings-trained She’s Extreme ($5) narrowly defeat the Golden Slipper – Inglis Sires’ winning filly Fireburn.
