The Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is one of the races held on the exciting Super Saturday of Racing at the esteemed Flemington Racecourse in early-mid March during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

The Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and the Australian Cup (2000m) are the two elite Group 1 races held at the meeting, while there are a host of other Group status support acts on the card including the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

The VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is a 1400m sprint race four two-year-olds at set weights worth $200,000 in prize money. The young sprinters contesting the Sires Produce Stakes may have previously competed in the most prestigious race for two-year-olds at the carnival, the Group 1 $1.5 million Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) a fortnight earlier at Caulfield.

As the first two-year-old group race at a distance greater than 1200m during the carnival, the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is commonly won by a quality galloper that has run strongly and proven themselves at the increased distance.

VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes History

The VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is one of the oldest races held at Flemington, first run in 1862 when Musidora was victorious. It was originally run over 1 mile (1600m) until 1919 when the race distance was changed to six furlongs. From 1920 the event was held over the increased length of seven furlongs and was converted to 1400m in 1972.

The VRC Sires Produce Stakes race was demoted from a Group 1 to a Group 2 event in 2005. The race has previously been known as the Flemington Stakes, Sapling Stakes and the Ascot Vale Stakes.

Notable VRC Sires Produce Stakes winners from recent years include All Too Hard (2012) and a subsequent Caulfield Cup winning mare in Jameka (2015).
