The Sheraco Stakes is a 1200m Group 2 sprinting event held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse* during September.

*Note: The 2021 edition of the Sheraco Stakes ran at Kembla Grange having been moved due to COVID-19. 

With total prize money of $200,000, the Sheraco Stakes is a nice Sydney Spring Racing Carnival kick-off for sprinting fillies and mares, and is usually targeted by most major Sydney trainers. Open only to fillies and mares and run under set weights with penalties conditions, this is a great race for form guide to follow into later spring features.

Some of the better three-year-old fillies in the Sheraco Stakes might choose to step up in class and distance and contend the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m), while the lucrative Group 2 $400,000 Golden Pendant later in the month is another likely aim. Mizzy (2019) was the last mare to win the Sheraco Stakes – Golden Pendant racing double.

The best mares out of the Sheraco Stakes results each spring could eventually end up in Melbourne on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington running in the Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) over the mile, a race the 2014 Sheraco Stakes winner Catkins ran third to Bonaria in. Catkins also returned and went back-to-back winning the 2016 Sheraco Stakes.

In 2020 the Sheraco Stakes winner Haut Brion Her went on to run second in that season’s $1 million Winners Stakes.

The 2021 Sheraco Stakes ran on Saturday September 11, 2021 at Kembla Grange (moved from Rosehill) and was won by the talented Jamie Richards-trained Kiwi raider Entriviere.

Sheraco Stakes History

The Sheraco Stakes is named after the winner of the 1982 Australian Oaks and all-round successful filly Sheraco.

Patou took out the inaugural edition of the Sheraco Stakes in 1998. Since then, a number of impressive horses have filled out the Sheraco Stakes each year, making this a race always worth punting on. Following only two years in existence, the quality of the field and the need for another black-type race for fillies and mares ensured that the Sheraco Stakes was quickly upgraded to Listed status (in 2000). In 2013, the Sheraco Stakes was again upgraded and is now a Group 2 event.

Initially run over 1100m, with the upgrade came an increase in distance to 1200m. The Sheraco Stakes has also been known by the sponsored name “Winning Edge Presentation Stakes”.

The Sheraco Stakes was later boosted to a Group 2 event for the first time in 2018.

Notable Sheraco Stakes winners include Nanny Maroon (2001), Mimi Lebrock (2008), More Joyous (2010, 2012), Driefontein (2013) and Entriviere (2021). Sheraco Stakes results since 2000 are below.

The 2021 Sheraco Stakes ran at Kembla Grange due to COVID-19 restrictions.
