  • 3rd: #3 Roots



The Star Kingdom Stakes – formerly known as the Sebring Stakes – is a Group 3 race for sprinters run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in late March on Tancred Stakes Day.

Offering $250,000 in prize money the 1200m event is run under quality handicap conditions and takes place at the same Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival meeting as the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) and Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).

Horses in the Star Kingdom Stakes field may be heading towards a Group 1 run later in the autumn or in the upcoming Brisbane Winter Carnival. In 2016 the Star Kingdom Stakes winner Malaguerra won the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) in May and also took out the spring’s Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

A nice lead-up race to the Star Kingdom Stakes is the Group 3 Maurcie McCarten Stakes (1100m) held at the track a fortnight earlier.

During the autumn many Star Kingdom Stakes graduates step-up in distance for a shot at the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick in April, a race the 2107 winner Jungle Edge ran third in next race.

The Star Kingdom Stakes form was franked in 2021 when the winner Signore Fox went on to run third in both the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) and Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) in Brisbane that winter.

In 2023 the Star Kingdom Stakes third place-getter Coal Crusher went on to run well in a host of subsequent events including winning Newcastle’s $1 million The Hunter that November.

The Star Kingdom Stakes 2024 ran on Saturday March 30, 2024 at Rosehill Gardens as part of Tancred Stakes Day and was won in an arrow upset by the Danny Williams-trained Bandi’s Boy ($15).

2024 Star Kingdom Stakes Tips

Stay tuned for our insider Star Kingdom Stakes 2024 Tips for the Tancred Stakes Day Group 3 event this autumn.

  • To Win: #7 Zou Tiger ($10 at time of publish) – BET NOW

The Star Kingdom promises an open and exciting race with several strong contenders returning from breaks. One horse offering intriguing value at $10 is Zou Tiger, trained by John O’Shea. While the four-year-old Zoustar gelding hasn’t yet broken through for a win at Rosehill (2nd place finishes in two of his four starts here), he has shown promise. The 1200m distance might be slightly shorter than ideal, but Zou Tiger comes off a dominant victory in the Listed Carrington Stakes (1400m) in late January. His recent trial form at Rosehill further strengthens his case. Zou Tiger could surprise at a good price.

Star Kingdom Stakes History

The Star Kingdom Stakes has been run and won since 1979 and the inaugural winner was The Judge. Since then quality sprinters including Mustard (2006), Swift Alliance (2010-11), Flamberge (2014), and Malaguerra (2016) have added their names to the list of Star Kingdom Stakes winners.

Also known in recent years as the Sebring Stakes (2010-2014), the event is named in honour of five time Leading Australian sire Star Kingdom whose progeny won the first five editions of the Golden Slipper Stakes. The race has been contested over both 1100m and 1200m.

In 2022 the Star Kingdom Stakes was moved from Rosehill on Saturday the 26th of March to Newcastle on Monday the 28th of March due to unsafe Heavy track conditions and rainfall.
