Tulloch Stakes History

First run in 1973 when Longfella claimed victory, the Tulloch Stakes began as a Principal race run over 1850m. In 1979 the race distance was increased to 2000m and the event was installed as a Group 2 race.

There have been a number of high quality horses to take out the Tulloch Stakes including Ivory’s Irish (1995), Mahogany (1994) and Durbridge (1991), all of which won the Tulloch Stakes/Australian Derby double.

More recent notable Tulloch Stakes winners include next-up Australian Derby champions Quick Thinker (2020), Angel Of Truth (2019), Levendi (2018) and Jon Snow (2017); as well as Hauraki (2015), and Count Encosta (2010).
