The Coolmore Stud Stakes, formerly known as the Ascot Vale Stakes, is a Group 1 sprint race for three-year-old horses.

This 1200m set weights race has undergone plenty of changes in the past few years as it has elevated into the premier sprint race for the youngsters during the annual Melbourne Cup Carnival in late October or early November each year. Worth just over $2 million in prize money, the race attracts mainly colts looking to increase their stallion value at stud.

Run on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse on the Saturday before Melbourne Cup Day on the first Tuesday of November, the Coolmore Stud Stakes was originally held earlier in the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival as a Group 2. When the name was changed in 2007, the Coolmore Stud Stakes became the first Group 1 sprint race under 1600m for three-year-olds. Raced down the straight at Flemington, many horses are first tested in the 1600m Caulfield Guineas before having to freshen up to return over a shorter 1200m in the Coolmore Stud Stakes.

The Coolmore Stud Stakes shares a bumper race card with two other Group 1 events with the Victoria Derby (2500m) and Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) also taking place at Headquarters.

The form of the 2021 Coolmore Stud Stakes was franked with the winner Home Affairs returning the following autumn to win the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning in 2022 first-up.

The 2022 Coolmore Stud Stakes winning filly In Secret franked the form the following autumn returning to Flemington to beat home the older horses in the 2023 Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m).

The 2024 Coolmore Stud Stakes runs as part of Victoria Derby Day at Flemington on Saturday, November 2, 2024.

Coolmore Stud Stakes History

The sprint race is held on the same day as the Victoria Derby and Empire Rose Stakes.

First held in 1933 when Shakuni won, the race has been claimed by some of the most famous sprinters in Australia. In 1978, Manikato added the Ascot Vale Stakes to his list of victories.

Prior to 1965 the Coolmore Stud Stakes was an Autumn Carnival event for two year olds.

Notable Coolmore Stud Stakes winners include: High Caste (1939), Comic Court (1948), Vain (1969), Surround (1976), Manikato (1978), Rose Of Kingston (1981), Encosta De Lago (1996), Alinghi (2004), Weekend Hussler (2007), Sepoy (2011), and Sunlight (2018).

In 2021 trainer Chris Waller celebrated back-to-back wins and his fifth in nine years with Home Affairs winning the Coolmore Stud Stakes.

In 2022 In Secret became the sixth filly since the race gained Group 1 status in 2006 to beat home the boys and handed jockey James McDonald successive victories after his 2021 win on Home Affairs.
