Manfred Stakes History

The Manfred Stakes began as a Principal race in 1968 and the inaugural winner was Anvil. Since then a number of notable gallopers have won the race including Danasinga (1995), Don Edurado (2002), Haradasun (2007), Turffontein (2008), Denman (2010) and Mosheen (2012).

The event was elevated to a Group 3 race from 1979 – 1990, but was downgraded to Listed status from 1991 – 2013. From 2014 the Manfred Stakes has been run as a Group 3 race once more and continues to attract quality three-year-olds. It has been run over various distances from 1200m – 1600m and at both Sandown and Caulfield Racecourse.

Other names the race has gone by over time are the Schweppes Cup, the Wellington Racing Club Stakes and now the Ladbrokes Manfred Stakes due to the sponsorship by online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au.
