Danehill Stakes History
The first recorded Danehill Stakes took place in 1982 when Fiesta Star won the Group 3 event. Changed to a Group 2 race in 2009, the sprint event has also been known as the Black Douglas, Hilton on the Park, Chivas Regal and L’Oreal Plate. The fastest recorded winning time (since 1988) was by 1 minute 8.1 seconds by Rich Enuff in 2014.
The 2011 Danehill Stakes winner Sepoy went on to win that year’s Coolmore Stud Stakes during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
The last filly to beat home the boys in the Danehill Stakes results was Catchy (2017) who also won the previous season’s Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes.
