After the two The Championships meetings that proceed it, All Aged Stakes Day is headlined by the namesake race and the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) for two-year-olds.

Other races of note on the card include the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m), Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m), and the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m).

Offering $1.5 million in total prize money as of 2023 the All Aged Stakes winner takes out $870,000 for connections. For 2020 the All Aged Stakes prize money was cut to $480,000 to help cope with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic before being elevated back to $600,000 in 2021 and then increased to $1.5 million ahead of the 2023 edition.

The weight-for-age classic is a middle distance sprint contested over 1400m and a key lead-up into the race is the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) run at the Randwick track a fortnight earlier.

Trapeze Artist (2018) became the first horse since Bentley Biscuit (2007) to win the TJ Smith Stakes – All Aged Stakes double.

In 2023 Giga Kick became the first three-year-old All Aged Stakes winner since Trapeze Artist (2018) to win his first race since the previous spring’s $15 million The Everest event – a race now worth $20 million in prize money.

The latest edition of the All Aged Stakes took place on Saturday April 20, 2024 on a Heavy (10) Randwick track and was won in a big late charge by Grahame Begg’s now two-time Group 1 winning mare Magic Time ($6.50).

All Aged Stakes Betting

All Aged Stakes betting markets are usually led by horses coming off a top two finish in a Group 1 Sydney lead-up earlier in the autumn.

From 2004 – 2024 just nine All Aged Stakes winners ran worse than second in their lead-up runs most recently Magic Time (2024) who improved on a 7th in the TJ Smith Stakes.

The Futurity Stakes – All Aged Stakes double was achieved just a couple of years earlier by three-year-old All Too Hard (2013).

Favourites have an excellent recent record in the race with eight of the 18 winners from 2006 – 2024 jumping as the punters’ pick, most recently Trapeze Artist (2018) and fellow three-year-old Giga Kick ($2.90 in 2023).

Prior to the 2020 success of Tofane ($12), the last double figure winner was back in 2001 when El Mirada ($31) scored an upset over third placed favourite Sunline, who won the editions either side in 2000 and 2002.

Three-year-olds have a recent good strike rate with four of the eight winners from 2012 – 2024 with Giga Kick (2023) the last.

Mares have also more than held their own with eight wins since 2000 (most recently Magic Time in 2024) plus the filly Atlantic Jewel getting the job done of the boys in 2012 and English saluting as a three-year-old filly in 2016.

All Aged Stakes Field

The All Aged Stakes race field features a collection of the season’s best weight-for-age performers however the race hasn’t attracted capacity line-ups in recent years. The largest All Aged Stakes field since 1983, when 15 starters took to the stalls, is 14 in both 1999 and 2009.

Under 10 starters gathered for nine of the 12 editions from 2005 – 2016. The smallest All Aged Stakes field in the past 30 years or so was just five in 1984 when Emancipation won.

All Aged Stakes Tips

All Aged Stakes tips favour proven Group 1 performers in Sydney coming off Autumn features like the Doncaster Mile a fortnight earlier at the track over 200m further or Melbourne’s Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) held in February.

The Doncaster Mile – All Aged Stakes double hasn’t been achieved however since Sunline (2002). In 2021 the Doncaster Mile winner Cascadian ran a brave third in the All Aged Stakes results before returning in 2022 to atone for his Doncaster ninth to win the All Aged in an upset at 10/1.

Cascadian also ran in the 2023 All Aged Stakes as an eight-year-old trying to defend his title and was far from disgraced finishing third.

Sprinters stepping up from the 1200m of the TJ Smith Stakes during The Championships have a good recent record and make a nice All Aged Stakes tip.

  • To Win: #10 Sunshine In Paris ($4.80 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Open edition of the All Aged Stakes, but going with the gun mare Sunshine In Paris who presents fit third-up and ready to fire.

Right credentials, form lines, and time in her campaign to get behind her with confidence now.
