The Vanity is a Group 3 race run at the famous Flemington Racecourse in February during the annual Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

The 1400m set weights plus penalties event is open only to three-year-old fillies and offers $160,000 in total prize money. It is one of the support races on the Black Caviar Lightning Day program that is headlined by the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) for sprinters. The meeting is also host to the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) for colts & geldings with the Australian Guineas in sight.

Fillies in The Vanity Stakes field may be first-up for the autumn and traditionally go on to contest other races for their age and sex such as the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) run a few weeks later on Newmarket Handicap Day. In 2015 Don’t Doubt Mamma won The Vanity before a second in the Kewney Stakes. Runner-up in the former Egypt also placed third in the Kewney Stakes. Solicit (2014) was the last filly to complete The Vanity – Kewney Stakes double.

More recently, the 2017 The Vanity winner Kenedna ran third int he Kewney Stakes before a stellar winter bid that included a second in the Group 1 Australasia Oaks (2010m) in Adelaide. That followed the Kewney Stakes second by the 2016 The Vanity champ Don’t Doubt Mamma.

The best fillies out of The Vanity may take on the boys in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) the following month or head to Sydney for elite level races including the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill or Randwick’s Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) during April’s ‘The Championships’.

Recent Australian Guineas winners to come out of The Vanity include Shamrocker (4th in 2011) and Mosheen (2nd in 2012). In 2019 The Vanity winner Amphitrite went on to run third next start in the Australian Guineas.

Originally run as a Listed race it was upgraded to its current Group 3 status in 2000. Along with Flemington it has taken place at Sandown Racecourse (1997) and Moonee Valley (2007).
