2021 Salinger Stakes Field

The Salinger Stakes field traditionally draws a nice field of Group 1 performed and Group 2 winning sprinters from around Sydney and Melbourne. Some of the best out of the Salinger Stakes field may back-up and run the following Saturday at the same track / distance in the Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic (1200m). Glamour Puss (2005) was the last runner to complete the Salinger Stakes – VRC Sprint Classic double.

Since the introduction of Sydney’s $15 million The Everest, a number of horses in the Salinger Stakes field now come off a run in that event – the world’s richest turf race. The 2018  Salinger Stakes winner Osborne Bulls came off a third in The Everest and went on to run second in his next five starts all in Group 1 company.

The 2021 Salinger Stakes field and barriers are announced on the Wednesday of race week and will be published in full below.

Salinger Stakes History

First won by Karina in 1960, the Salinger Stakes has been known by many different names including the Craven A Plate, Pure-Pak Stakes, Gasden Rheem Stakes, Southcorp Stakes and Yellowglen Stakes. In 2007 it was downgraded from Group One status to a Group Two race.

Since its inauguration, there have only been three horses which have managed to win the event more than once with River Rough in 1983-84, Planet Ruler in 1989-90 and Fontelina in 2012-13.

Notable Salinger Stakes winners include Vain (1969), Maybe Mahal (1976), Always Welcome (1978), Hareeba (1994), Takeover Target (2004), Glamour Puss (2005), Fontelina (2012, 2013) and Osborne Bulls (2018). Salinger Stakes results and winning times since 2000 are listed below.

In 2020 Kemalpasa became the latest dual Salinger Stakes winner when successfully defending his title.
