Royal Sovereign Stakes History

First won by Acamar in 1979, the Royal Sovereign Stakes quickly changed to Group 3 status in 1981. In 1996 the Royal Sovereign Stakes was elevated to be a Group 2 event.

Since its inauguration in 1979, the fastest winning time for the Royal Sovereign Stakes was recorded by Guineas in 1998 with 1 minute 3.66 seconds. The slowest winning time was recorded in 1981 by Trench Digger with 1 minute 15.8 seconds.

The race has been run at Royal Randwick, Warwick Farm Racecourse and for one year it took place at Rosehill Gardens (2013) when Rebel Dane won. Up until 2006 the event was restricted to colts and geldings, but fillies are now also eligible to line-up in the Arrowfield 3YO Sprint field. It was known as the Royal Sovereign Stakes from 1979 – 2013 before changing names to the Arrowfield 3YO Sprint in 2014.
