  • 2nd: #5 Magic Carpet
  • 3rd: #10 Swift Sweet



Held during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival in March, the Magic Night Stakes is a Group 3 sprint for two year old fillies. As a set weights race, the fillies are required to carry 55.5kg over the 1200m distance at Rosehill Racecourse. Worth $175,000 in prize money, the event is run on Coolmore Classic Day.

The meeting is headlined by the Group 1 $600,000 Coolmore Classic (1500m) for fillies and mares. Other support races held on the card include the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m), the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) and the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) which is the colts & gelding’s equivalent to the Magic Night Stakes.

The Magic Night Stakes winner is exempt from ballot for the Group 1 $5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) that is held in one week’s time. It is a final chance for fillies to make the field for the world’s richest two-years-old race.

The last Golden Slipper winner to back-up off a Magic Night Stakes run was Kiamichi (2019) who did the double, and a number of Magic Night Stakes graduates have also placed in the Golden Slipper in recent years.

In 2017 the Magic Night Stakes winner Tulip went on to run third in the Golden Slipper trifecta, as did Sunlight in 2018. Sunlight would also continue on to win three Group 1 races over the next 12 months with victories in the Coolmore Stud Stakes (2018), Newmarket Handicap (2019) and William Reid Stakes (2019).

The Magic Night Stakes 2022 ran on Saturday March 12, 2022 and was won by the Anthony Cummings-trained favourite She’s Extreme ($3.50F).
