Ladbrokes Tip: Don’t back a horse that ran worse than fourth in the lead-up to the Inglis Sires’
The ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes, referred to as simply the Inglis Sires’, is one of the four Group 1 highlights on the Doncaster Mile Day card at Royal Randwick Racecourse on the first Saturday in April*.
*In 2021 the Inglis Sires’ ran on the second Saturday of April with all race meetings of the autumn in Sydney from Slipper Day onwards postponed a week due to the weather.
The meeting makes up Day 1 of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival’s coveted The Championships and the other top level races on the card are the Doncaster Mile, TJ Smith Stakes and Australian Derby.
Open to two-year-olds and run at set weights, the ATC Inglis Sires’ offers $1 million in total prize money including $600,000 to the winning juvenile.
For the 2020 edition, the prizemoney was reduced to $500,000 with $287,000 for the winner due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but was elevated again in 2021.
Colts and geldings carry 56.5kg and the fillies 54.5kg over the 1400m. No lead-up races offer an ATC Inglis’ Sires’ Produce Stakes ballot exemption so the form coming into the classic is varied but the Golden Slipper Stakes traditionally provides the winner.
The Golden Slipper Stakes is the first leg of the Sydney Two-Years-Old Triple Crown followed by the Inglis Sires’ and then the Champagne Stakes. Pierro (2012) was the last juvenile to complete the coveted Autumn Triple Crown and joined just five other Australian turf champions in doing so.
More recently, King’s Legacy went on to win the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) next start after his upset victory in the 2020 Inglis Sires’.
The 2021 Inglis Sires’ winner Anamoe improved on a lead-up second in the Golden Slipper to win before a huge spring headlined by his Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) win and second in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) in Melbourne.
The next edition of the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes takes place on Saturday April 2, 2022.

ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes Betting
ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes betting is led by two-year-olds that ran top four in their final lead-up run with only one winner since 1990 having run worse than fourth in their last Group lead-up.
From 2006 – 2021 just four Inglis Sires’ favourites saluted for the punters when Camarilla (2007) and Sebring (2008) went back-to-back, Yankee Rose (2016) got the job done eight years later, and Anamoe (2021) won as the odds-on fancy.
Longer priced hopes in the Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes odds have a good record but until the huge 2018 upset by El Dorado Dreaming ($81) there had still only been one double figure winner in that time when Yosei scored the upset at $17 in 2010.
There was another upset in 2020 with King’s Legacy winning as a $19 chance in Inglis Sires’ betting for five-time winning trainer Peter Snowden.
Horses coming off a Golden Slipper Stakes lead-up dominate the markets and the feature juvenile’s race of the year has produced more ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce winners than any other event.
