The Blazer Stakes is a 1400m set weights and penalties race run at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse in early October.

Currently called the Rose Of Kingston Stakes, the Group 2 Blazer Stakes is run during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and is worth $300,000 in prize money. The race takes place on Turnbull Stakes Day, the line-up for which also includes the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m), Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m), Group 2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2500m).

Open only to mares aged four-years-old and above, the Blazer Stakes attracts a quality line-up each season with many of the runners heading towards the following month’s Group 1 Empire Rose Classic (1600m) back at the track over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The 2020 Rose Of Kingston Stakes winner Sierra Sue went on to frank the form winning the following year’s Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield.
