The 2020 Belle Of The Turf Stakes is a Group 3 event held at Gosford Racecourse during the summer in late December having been moved from its previous time slot of January as part of the Central Coast Carnival.

Raced over one mile (1600m), the Belle Of The Turf Stakes is held under handicap conditions and pays $160,000 total prize money. It is open only to fillies and mares aged three years and older, and tends to be a popular Christmas season target taking place around the Boxing Day races.

The key support act on the Belle Of The Turf Stakes Day card is the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m) for three-year-old sprinters.

Fillies and mares in the Belle Of The Turf Stakes field traditionally come off lead-up summer races against similar company at Sydney tracks like Warwick Farm and Rosehill Gardens.

In 2017 there were two editions of the Belle Of The Turf Stakes, the first won by Imposing Lass in mid-January and the later to run in late December with the Joe Pride-trained Pecans victorious for her first Group race victory.

The 2020 Belle Of The Turf Stakes takes place on Tuesday December 29, 2020 .
