The Neville Sellwood Stakes is a Group 3 race run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in late March (early April for 2021) each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival as part of the Tancred Stakes Day.

Contested over a 2000m staying distance, the set weights plus penalties clash is open to horses aged four-years-old and upwards and offers $160,000 in total prize money. Autumn gallopers may come into the Neville Sellwood Stakes field a run in the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) at the track a fortnight earlier and the last horse to complete the double was It’s Somewhat (2016). The Group 3 Sky High Stakes (2000m) is another nice lead-up and in 2016 Messene ran second in both races.

After the Neville Sellwood Stakes next-up options include the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on the second Saturday of April at Royal Randwick or the Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m) a week later on All Aged Stakes Day. In 2016 Sir John Hawkwood won the Sky High Stakes, finished third in the Neville Sellwood and then second in the JRA Cup.

In 2018 the Neville Sellwood Stakes winner Arbeitsam went on to finish third in the Doncaster Mile results.

The Neville Sellwood Stakes 2021 ran on Saturday April 3, 2021 and was won in all-the-way fashion by Shared Ambition.

Neville Sellwood Stakes History

The Neville Sellwood Stakes was first run in 1980 and won by Iko. The race is named after former champion jockey Neville Sellwood (1922 – 1962) who rode the first Golden Slipper Stakes winner Todman. For one year in 2010 the event took place at Canterbury Racecourse over 1900m. After starting out as a Listed race it gained its current Group 3 status in 2011.

Notable Neville Sellwood Stakes winners include Lights Of Heaven (2013) and Junoob (2014). French import Pornichet won the race in 2015 and went on to take out that winter’s Doomben Cup in Brisbane.
