Triscay Stakes History

The Triscay Stakes has been run since 1995 making it a relatively new race on the Australian Racing Calander. It is hosted by the Australian Turf Club (ATC) and is named after former star filly Triscay who completed the 1991 Queensland Guineas – Queensland Oaks double. It has been known by a number of different names including the Triscay Fillies and MAres Quality Handicap (1995) and the Triscay Fillies and Mares Quality Stakes (1996 – 2005).

The event started as a Listed race before gaining its current Group 3 status in 2014. It has been run at Royal Randwick since 2014 and was previously held at Rosehill Gardens, Canterbury Park and Warwick Farm Racecourse.

Notable Triscay Stakes winners include Victory Vein (2004), Hot Danish (2008) and Thump (2015).
