The Group 2 Furious Stakes is a set weight race for three year old fillies held at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney. Held in early September during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, the 1200m event is worth $200,000 in prize money.

Many fillies will first race in the Silver Shadow Stakes held two weeks earlier. Formality (2017),  Libertini (2019) and Dame Giselle (2020) are the most recent fillies to complete the Silver Shadow – Furious Stakes double.

The better performing fillies will then advance to the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) held at Rosehill Gardens. Foxplay (2016) followed by Dame Giselle (2020) are the latest to take out the Furious Stakes – Tea Rose Stakes double.

The Furious Stakes is part of the ‘Princess Series Of Races’ and the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) over the mile at Randwick on Epsom Handicap Day completes the series.

Angst (1993) and Samantha Miss (2008) are the only two fillies in history to complete the series with wins in all four races: Silver Shadow Stakes / Furious Stakes / Tea Rose Stakes / Flight Stakes.

The Furious Stakes 2021 ran on Saturday September 4, 2021 and was won in an upset by Jamaea at 20/1.
