The Kevin Hayes Stakes – previously known as the Boronia Stakes – is a Group 3 race contested at Caulfield Racecourse during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival on C.F. Orr Stakes Day.

CF Orr Stakes Day is host to some of the top early autumn events including the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) and the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m). The Kevin Hayes Stakes is run over 1200m and is open only to three-year-old fillies. The set weights plus penalties sprint offers $160,000 in prize money and makes a nice lead-up to some tougher autumn features for three-year-olds.

Fillies in the Kevin Hayes Stakes field may have came via an earlier summer – autumn run or be kicking off their campaigns. A good next-up run back at the track a fortnight later is the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) on Blue Diamond Stakes Day. Sabatini (2015) was the last filly to complete the Kevin Hayes Stakes – Angus Armanasco Stakes double.

The best out of the race could go on to take on the boys in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) as the 2016 winner Risque did finishing third in the Flemington mile feature in early March.

The Kevin Hayes Stakes 2021 ran on Saturday February 6, 2021 and saw the favourite La Mexicana salute for the punters.

2021 Kevin Hayes Stakes Nominations

The Kevin Hayes Stakes 2021 nominations close on Monday February 1, 2021 and will be listed in full below as soon as released.

Kevin Hayes Stakes History

The Kevin Hayes Stakes was first run in 1984 as the Catanach’s Handicap and won by Fork Tongue. Notable Kevin Hayes Stakes winners since include Rockabye (1992), Hollow Bullet (2005), Typhoon Tracy (2009), Octavia (2013) and Risque (2016).

The race began as a Listed event and gained its current Group 3 status in 2014. For one year in 2006 the event took place at Sandown Racecourse instead of Caulfield. The Kevin Hayes Stakes has been run over 1400m, 1200m and 1100m over the years and has gone by a number of different names. It was renamed as the Kevin Hayes Stakes in 2004 in honour of the Victoria Amateur Turf Club’s former chairman Kevin Hayes.
