The Tibbie Stakes is a 1400 sprinting event held at Newcastle Racecourse (also known as Beaumont Racecourse) on a Friday in mid-September.

The Tibbie Stakes is restricted to mares and fillies and traditionally attracts mainly Sydney-trained hopefuls. Run under set weights plus penalties conditions with total prize money of $160,000, the Tibbie Stakes can serve as a nice early lead-up to similar class and conditioned races of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

The Tibbie Stakes forms a major part of the annual two day Newcastle Racing Carnival. The Tibbie Stakes falls on the second day of the carnival, Newcastle Cup Day, on which the Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup is also held along with the Group 3 Cameron Handicap.

One of the major lead up races to the Tibbie Stakes is the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) held at Rosehill the week before. From the Tibbie Stakes, the Group 3 Angst Stakes (1600m) at Randwick over the mile in early October makes a nice target race.

The 2019 Tibbie Stakes ran on Friday September 20, 2019 and was won by the John Thompson-trained Sweet Deal.

  • 3rd: #10 Connemara

The official Tibbie Stakes 2019 Results saw the ultra-consistent John Thompson-trained mare Sweet Deal celebrate her maiden Black-Type success with a tough victory at Newcastle. Thompson also won the event only two years back with Zanbagh (2017) and said it was a deserving victory from his daughter of Casino Prince. Sweet Deal defeated Notation (2nd) from the stables of Matt Dale and the Bjorn Baker-trained Connemara (3rd) after an on-speed run throughout facing the breeze. Race favourite Pohutukawa lost few admirers finishing a game fourth after a three-wide run throughout.

2019 Tibbie Stakes Field

The official Tibbie Stakes field and barrier draw is released on the Wednesday of race week and attracts a class line-up of in-form fillies and mares coming out of earlier Sydney Spring Racing Carnival events including the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) or the Listed Mona Lisa Stakes (1350m) at Wyong a fortnight earlier.

The 2019 Tibbie Stakes Field is down to 13 after four early scratchings including Con Te Partiro who instead runs in the Cameron Handicap earlier in the day. Updated Tibbie Stakes markets have Pohutukawa as the firming favourite first-up for Godolphin, the mare last seen running second in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara in Brisbane.

Tibbie Stakes History

The Tibbie Stakes was inaugurated in 1990 and quickly became an important target for fillies and mares across New South Wales. Originally named the Tibbie Plate, the race received an upgraded name when its status was lifted to Listed in 2005. In 2013, the Tibbie Stakes was upgraded again to Group 3. Along with a prize increase this meant the Tibbie Stakes would now be a prime target for Sydney-stabled horses.

Notable Tibbie Stakes winners include More Strawberries (2011) and She’s Clean (2015). The Tibbie Stakes results and winning times since 2001 are below.
