The Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes is a 2040m race for three-year-old runners and is open to both fillies and colts & geldings.

Raced at Moonee Valley during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival in March, the Alister Clark Stakes is a set weights and penalties event worth $200,000 in prize money. The Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1200m) held in February at Flemington and the Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) on Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes Day are good lead-up races into the Alister Clark Stakes. The CS Hayes – Alister Clark Stakes double was last achieved by Cliff’s Edge (2018).

Alternatively, three-year-olds may come into the Alister Clark Stakes field via a Sydney lead-up run in the previous Saturday’s Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) that produced the 2017 winner Hardman (7th). Hardham also went on to run third next-up at Randwick during ‘The Championships’ in the Group 1 ATC Derby (2400m). Ethiopia (2012) was the last ATC Derby winner to come off a run in Melbourne’s Alister Clark Stakes improving on his lead-up second.

The Alister Clark Stakes 2019 runs under lights on Friday March 15, 2019.
