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.

In 2020 the Tibbie Stakes winner All Saints’ Eve went on to run fourth in that year’s $7.5 million The Golden Eagle race.

The 2021 Tibbie Stakes ran on Friday September 17, 2021 and was won by track specialist Madam Legend.

2021 Tibbie Stakes Nominations

Nominations for the Tibbie Stakes are taken the Monday leading-up to Newcastle Gold Cup Day.

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), She’s Clean (2015) and Sweet Deal (2019). The Tibbie Stakes results and winning times since 2001 are below.
