ATC Carbine Club Stakes 2022

Saturday April 2, 2022

The ATC Carbine Club Stakes is a Group 3 mile race for three-year-olds held at Randwick Racecourse in early April on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’.

Not be confused with the VRC Carbine Club Stakes held in the spring, the event runs alongside a bumper autumn racing line-up in Sydney including the Doncaster Mile and TJ Smith Stakes.

Run at set weights plus penalties, it offers $200,000 in prize money and was first conducted in 1981 but did not gain Group 3 status until 2011.

The race is named in honour of former champion thoroughbred from the 19th century Carbine whose victories included the 1890 Melbourne Cup and back-to-back wins in the Sydney Cup (1889-1890).

The latest edition of the Carbine Club Stakes (ATC) ran on Saturday April 2, 2022 on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’ at Randwick and was won by the Chris Waller-trained favourite Straight Arron ($2.15).
