The Angst Stakes is a 1600m race held at Royal Randwick Racecourse during the end of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

With a grand total of $160,000 prize money, the Group 3 Angst Stakes is a highly targeted event for mares heading south to Melbourne for the end of their spring campaigns. It is run under set weights plus penalties conditions, creating a level playing field which allows the more talented mares to stand out, and is open to mares aged four-years-old and above.

The Angst Stakes is held on Spring Champion Stakes Day, which is headlined by the Victoria Derby hopes facing off in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m).

A couple of lead-up races worth watching are the Group 3 Tibbie Stakes (1400m) held at Newcastle and the Group 2 Golden Pendant (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens.

The event serves as a potential lead-up into Flemington’s Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) over the Melbourne Cup Carnival and was won in 2019 by Nettoyer who went on to win the following year’s Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

The 2020 Angst Stakes ran on Saturday October 10, 2020 and was won by Emeralds.

Angst Stakes History

A relatively young race, the Angst Stakes was inaugurated in 1994, following the renowned mare Angst’s excellent win in the 1993 Flight Stakes. Providing a competitive event for mares from diverse backgrounds who excel over a range of distances, the Angst Stakes has become an integral part of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Between its inauguration and 2013, the Angst Stakes was classified as a Listed race. The continued rise in the quality of the field and the dependence on the race by trainers of older mares led to the Angst Stakes being upgraded to Group 3 prior to the 2014 edition.

The Angst Stakes has been variously held at Randwick and Rosehill Gardens. Much like the rest of NSW races, there was no Angst Stakes held in 2007 due to attempts to contain the outbreak of equine influenza. The Angst Stakes was once know as the Angst Mares Quality Handicap.

The distance of the Angst Stakes has changed a few times over the years, ranging from 1400m, to 1500m, to today’s distance of 1600m.

Notable Angst Stakes winners include Sky Watch (1994), Miss Zoe (2002), Neroli (2008) and Sharnee Rose (2013). In 2017 Dixie Blossoms made history as the first back-to-back Angst Stakes winner. Angst Stakes results and winning times since 2000 are listed below.
