The McEwen Stakes is a Group 2 sprint held during early September at Moonee Valley Racecourse. Raced over 1000 metres under weight for age conditions, the McEwen Stakes pays $300,000 in total prize-money as of 2021.

The McEwen Stakes is held on Feehan Stakes Day – also known as the Ladbrokes Cox Plate Qualifier Day – and shares its race program with the Group 2  John F. Feehan Stakes (1600m).

Most of the sprinters that contest the McEwen Stakes are kicking off their spring campaigns. Success in the McEwen Stakes is often followed by an attempt at the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m)  and or the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) both held back at The Valley over the spring.

In recent years the 2016 McEwen Stakes winner Wild Rain went on to run third in the Moir Stakes, while the year before the great grey Chautauqua (2015) completed the McEwen Stakes – Manikato Stakes double.

In 2020 the McEwen Stakes winning mare Bella Vella backed-up to run third in that season’s Moir Stakes results.

The 2021 McEwen Stakes form was franked with the winner The Inferno running second next-up in the Moir Stakes, while the third-placed mare September Run returned the following autumn to win the Group 1 William Reid Stakes in 2022.

The McEwen Stakes 2022 runs on Saturday September 3, 2022 at The Valley.

McEwen Stakes History

Registered as the Ian McEwen Trophy, the McEwen Stakes was inaugurated in 1995, making it a relatively young race. The McEwen Stakes was named in honour of Ian McEwen, a former secretary for the Moonee Valley Racing Club. For the very first year it ran, the race was referred to as the Anniversary Trophy.

Between 1995 and 1997 the race ran as an unlisted event. Following an upgrade in 1997, the race was listed until 2005. In 2006, a further upgrade saw the McEwen Stakes run as a Group 3 event for six years. From 2013 onwards, the McEwen Stakes is Group 2 event.

The McEwen Stakes has always been run over 1000m (excepting the year 2000 when it was run over 1200m) and has always been held at Moonee Valley (with the exception of the inaugural edition, when it was held at Caulfield).

Plenty of impressive horses have ran in the race throughout the years. Notable McEwen Stakes winners include Sequalo (1995), Testa Rossa (2000), Mistegic (2002), Miss Andretti (2006), Buffering (2011) and the ‘Grey Flash’ Chautauqua (2015).

In 2018 the McEwen Stakes winner Nature Strip set a new record winning in a slick 56.95 seconds.
