  • 2nd: #1 Manaal
  • 3rd: #9 Wave Breaker



The Widden Stakes is Group 3 race run at Rosehill Gardens in late January or early February during the end of the summer and start of the famous Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. The 1100m sprint is open to two-year-old fillies and is run at set weights plus penalties.

The Widden Stakes is currently one of three Group status races at the Rosehill meeting that is also host to the the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m), which is the colts & geldings’ equivalent of the Widden Stakes, and the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes (1200m). 

Fillies that run in the Widden Stakes field may be kicking off their careers first-up, or have run in the spring before in something like the Gimcrack Stakes (1100m) held at Randwick in September / October.

The Widden Stakes can serve as a lead-up into the world’s richest race for two-year-olds – the Group 1 $4.92 million Golden Slipper (1200m) run back at Rosehill Racecourse in March.

In 2020 the Magic Millions 2YO Classic winning filly Away Game took out the Widden Stakes and went on to run fourth in that year’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes in Melbourne and second in the Golden Slipper results.

The only fillies to date to complete the Widden Stakes – Golden Slipper Stakes double are Overreach (2013) and Mossfun (2014).

The 2022 Widden Stakes form was franked with the runner-up Revolutionary Miss going on to win the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) next-up before a second in Caulfield’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes in Melbourne. She also returned in the spring and was runner-up in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) that October.

The 2023 Widden Stakes winner Learning To Fly franked the form with next-up wins in the $2 million Inglis Millennium and Group 2 Reisling Stakes before losing her rider in that year’s Golden Slipper. 

The 2024 Widden Stakes ran on Saturday February 3rd, 2024 at Rosehill Gardens as an early Golden Slipper lead-up race and was won in a powerhouse performance by the well-backed favourite Lady Of Camelot ($1.60F) from the Waterhouse/Bott stable.

2024 Widden Stakes Tips

Stay tuned for our insider Widden Stakes 2024 Tips on the popular end-of-January showdown this season.

  • To Win: #1 Manaal ($5.50 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Intriguing clash of young guns, but savvy punters will find solace in the proven prowess of Michael Freedman’s Gimcrack Stakes victor. While untested talents abound, we favor the daughter of Tassort, a champion at debut . Underrated then, she exudes class and returns well-prepared after impressive trials. The three-kilo penalty is easily negated by her raw ability and experience. Trusty Tommy Berry retains the reins, adding another layer of confidence. Expect her to silence the unknowns and gallop to another well-deserved victory.

2024 Widden Stakes Field

The Widden Stakes field attracts a quality line-up of promising young fillies who are heading towards other similar races over the autumn in Sydney for two-year-olds including the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) held a month later at Royal Randwick and the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) in March before a Golden Slipper Stakes bid.

Learning To Fly (2023) was the last filly to complete the Widden Stakes – Reisling Stakes double

The official 2024 Widden Stakes field and barriers will be released by Racing NSW on the Wednesday of race week and will be published in full below.

The Widden Stakes 2024 final field features a solid line-up of untapped fillies with markets led by the rails-drawn Lady Of Camelot, a narrow fourth in the Group 3 Gimcrack on debut in a blanket finish, from the Waterhouse/Bott stable who has been huge winning her lead-up trials by sizable margins.

Widden Stakes History

The Widden Stakes is named after Widden Stud, home to some of the country’s premier stallions and sires. It was inaugurated in 1943 as a 1000m Principal Race. It has been run over its current 1100m distance during 2005-07 and since 2009 onwards. The event gained Listed status in 1979 – 2013 before being upgraded to a Group 3 autumn feature from 2014.

There have been three racecourses to host the Widden Stakes – Randwick, Rosehill Gardens and Warwick Farm.

Plenty of notable fillies have won the event and some of the best Widden Stakes winners in recent years include Triscay (1989), Dynasty (1993), Satin Shoes (2011), subsequent Golden Slipper winner Overreach (2013), Mossfun (2014), Fiesta (2018), and that year’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Away Game (2020).

In 2020 Away Game became the first filly in over 20 years to carry more than 56.5kg to victory in the Widden Stakes.
