The Group 2 A.V. Kewney Stakes is held at Flemington Racecourse in March as a part of Newmarket Handicap Day. As the premier three-years-old fillies’ mile event of the season, the Kewney Stakes takes place on the same day as the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) which is contested by a field of the season’s best sprinters.

Worth $300,000 in prize money, the set weights event is raced over a 1400m distance. The ideal lead-up races to the Kewney Stakes include the Group 3 Vanity Stakes (1200m) and the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m). Zarita (2008) was the last filly to complete the Angus Armanasco Stakes – Kewney Stakes double.

The 2022 Kewney Stakes form was franked with the winner Barb Raider going on to run second in Adelaide’s Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m) and Brisbane’s Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2200m) that year.

The Kewney Stakes 2024 ran on Saturday March 9, 2024 on Newmarket Handicap Day at Flemington and saw the Peter Moody & Katherine Coleman-trained The Autumn Sun filly Autumn Angel ($4.60) dig deep to hold off the challengers and win.

2024 Kewney Stakes Tips

Stay tuned for our insider Kewney Stakes 2024 Tips on the Newmarket Handicap Day Group 2 event this autumn.

  • To Win: #4 Grinzinger Belle ($7 at time of publish) – BET NOW

The Kewney promises an exciting clash of in-form fillies, but Grinzinger Belle offers a touch of value. Fresh off a victory in the Group 3 The Vanity at this very track, she comes into the race with fitness and confidence. While drawn the same wide barrier 12, it didn’t hinder her last time, and she has already proven her ability at the course. Her narrow second-place finish in a Group 2 over a mile demonstrates her capabilities at the distance. Given her current form and track record, Grinzinger Belle is worth considering as a contender.

2024 Kewney Stakes Field

Kewney Stakes History

First won by Great Field in 1952, the A.V. Kewney Stakes has featured several superb fillies including 1999 winner Sunline from New Zealand. Sunline was the highest earning female racehorse of her time amassing over $11 million in prize money.

The Kewney Stakes was traditionally run over 2000m before being cut to a mile (1600m) from 1985 – 2009 and then the current 1400m distance from 2010 onwards. After kicking off as a Principle Race, the event gained Group 2 status in 1979 and took place at Caulfield Racecourse for one year in 2007 as Flemington underwent an upgrade.

Notable recent Kewney Stakes winners include Solicit (2014) and I Am A Star (2017).
