  • 3rd: #8 Seven Veils



The Tobin Bronze Stakes – formerly run as the Eucalse Stakes – is a Group 2 feature race for three-year-olds held in early May on Robert Sangster Stakes Day during the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over a sprint distance of 1200m, the set weights clash is the major support race on the Group 1 Morphettville meeting that is headlined by the Robert Sangster Stakes.

Worth just over $200,000 in total prize money, the event is run by the South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC) and was inaugurated in 1981. The 2020 Euclase Stakes prize money was reduced to $175,000 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Euclase Stakes field attracts both locally-trained and visiting interstate raiders chasing a share in the stakes, the race at one time worth half-a-million-dollars.

Runners may have earlier contested Sydney’s Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) at Royal Randwick or the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) during ‘The Championships’. The traditional local lead-up is Morphettville’s Listed Redelva Stakes (1100m) run a fortnight before.

The 2022 Tobin Bronze Stakes form was franked with the winner Seradess going on to win the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes at her next start.

The Tobin Bronze Stakes 2023 ran on Saturday May 6, 2023 as part of Morphettville’s Robert Sangster Stakes Day card and was won in imposing fashion by the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Merchant Navy filly Royal Merchant ($4.60).

2023 Tobin Bronze Stakes Tips

Stay tuned for our insider Tobin Bronze Stakes 2023 Tips on the Group 2 Adelaide sprint this autumn.

  • To Win: #5 Wee Nessy ($5 at time of publish) 

Great line-up of three-year-olds here and lots of livewire chances. Going for the in-form Snitzel filly from Cranbourne with Wee Nessy on top at a good price. She comes off three straight second placings and is now out to shrug off her bridesmaid status. Has a strong 1200m strike-rate (5:1-3-0), and she was last seen finishing under a length off the talented Aft Cabin from the Godolphin stable in the Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) in Sydney. Aft Cabin leads all-in markets for a number of upcoming Group 1 winter races in Brisbane making the $5 offering (at time of publish) on this filly here even more attractive.

2023 Tobin Bronze Stakes Field

The Tobin Bronze Stakes field attracts a smart line-up of three-year-olds from Adelaide and interstate stables coming off a number of various lead-up races. Some of the runners may back-up on successive Saturdays going on to run in the Listed Adelaide Guineas (1600m) over the mile a week later.

The official Tobin Bronze Stakes 2023 Field & Barriers will be announced below the week of the race.

The 2023 Tobin Bronze Stakes final field features a quality line-up of promising young sprinters led in betting by the Peter Moody-trained Street Boss filly She Dances coming off a powerhouse 5.5 length win over the distance at Sandown in mid-April.

Euclase Stakes / Tobin Bronze Stakes History

The event has been known as a number of different race names over the years for sponsorship purposes and was officially registered as the Euclase Stakes from 1991 – 2021. The race’s original name was the Great Western Plate (1981 – 87) followed by the Carrington Blush Plate (1988 – 89), the Angus Brut Classic (1990-2000), the Yallambee Classic (2001-13).

The title Euclase came from the 1991 winner of the race of the same name. The first Euclase Stakes winner was Apollo’s Flame who won the race when it only held Listed status. The event was elevated to a Group 3 event from 1986 – 1990 before gaining its current Group 2 status in 1991 when the aforementioned Euclase took it out.

The most notable Euclase Stakes winner in recent years was Miracles Of Life (2014), winner of the previous year’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne.

The biggest recent upset Euclase Stakes result came in 2018 when $151 roughie I’ll Have A Bit saluted late.

The form out of the 2019 Euclase Stakes was franked the following year when the third placed Gytrash scored an upset win in Flemington’s Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning in 2020.

In 2021 the Euclase Stakes was renamed the Tobin Bronze Stakes and won by Beau Rossa.
