The Tulloch Stakes is a Group 2 race for three-year-old colts & geldings contested over 2000m at Rosehill Gardens under set weights held midway through the illustrious Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival on Tancred Stakes Day.

The meeting is host to two Group 1 races – the $1.5 million Tancred Stakes (2400m) and the $500,000 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) – as well as a host of support acts including the Tulloch Stakes and the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) for the fillies & mares.

Offering $200,000 in total prize money the Tulloch Stakes serves as a key lead-up to the Group 1 $2 million Australian Derby (2400m) contested at Royal Randwick a week later on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’. Recent horses to complete the Tulloch Stakes – ATC Derby double are Starcraft (2004), Jon Snow (2017), Levendi (2018), Angel Of Truth (2019) and Quick Thinker (2020).

In 2021 Young Werther ran third in the Tulloch Stakes results before a second in the ATC Derby that autumn.

Horses may come into the Tulloch Stakes field via a number of earlier autumn lead-up races including the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) run at the same track a fortnight earlier on Coolmore Classic Day.

The Tulloch Stakes 2022 ran on Monday the 28th of March at Newcastle after being moved from abandoned Rosehill meeting the Saturday prior due to unsuitable Heavy track conditions and was won by the James Cummings-trained Character ($4.60).

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).

See below for the full Tulloch Stakes results going back to 2000.

In 2022 the Tulloch Stakes was moved from Rosehill on Saturday the 26th of March to Newcastle on Monday the 28th of March due to unsafe Heavy track conditions and rainfall.
