Angst Stakes 2023

Ladbrokes Tip: The Angst Stakes serves as a nice lead-up into the Group 1 mares’ races later in the spring.

The Angst Stakes is a Group 3 race for mares run and won at Royal Randwick in mid-October on The Everest Day each Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

The race is contested over a mile, was first held in 1994, gained Group 3 status in 2013 and currently offers $250,000 in prize money.

The Angst Stakes is named in honour of the ill-fated filly Angst who won the  Silver Shadow Stakes, Furious Stakes, Tea Rose Stakes and the Flight Stakes in 1993 before passing away during larynx surgery later that year as a three-year-old.

The Angst Stakes is held on the same day as the $20 million The Everest slot race, which is the world’s richest race run on turf.

Other key events on the card include the Group 1 $5 million King Charles III Stakes (1600m) which was formerly known as the George Main Stakes, the $2 million The Kosciuszko (1200m) slot race for country-trained horses, four-year-old Golden Eagle hopefuls facing off in the $1 million Silver Eagle (1300m), the Group 3 $2 million Sydney Stakes for sprinters that failed to first gain a start in The Everest field, and the Group 3 $500,000 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) for Spring Champion Stakes-bound three-year-olds.

The Angst Stakes serves as a potential lead-up into Flemington’s Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The latest edition of the Angst Stakes ran on Saturday October 14, 2023 as part of Randwick’s The Everest Day race card and saw the Bjorn Baker-trained Renaissance Woman ($6) come with a great late run to win.

An open edition of the Angst Stakes with plenty of value to be had backing the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Mirra View at 10/1. The five-year-old daughter of More Than Ready needs to stretch out to a mile, but she is fit third-up and has been racing well in similar grade. Fresh she won the Listed Mona Lisa at Wyong before a Group 3 Tibbie Stakes third at Newcastle. Comes back in weight, gets a good gate again, has been kept fresh for this and if she runs the 1600m she can salute.
