Concorde Stakes 2021

Saturday September 4th, 2021

Ladbrokes Tip: The Concorde Stakes is a good early lead-up into the $15 million The Everest.

The Concorde Stakes is a popular Group 3 short-distance sprint contested at Royal Randwick on Chelmsford Stakes Day in early September each Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. 

The set weights plus penalties showdown offers $160,000 in prize money and has been run and won since 1990. 

The Concorde Stakes now serves as a potential lead-up into the world’s richest turf race, the $15 million The Everest (1200m) taking place at the same track in October. 

In 2017 and 2018 the champion Redzel completed the Concorde Stakes – The Everest double twice on the trot and returned in 2019 to become a three-time Concorde Stakes hero. 

In 2020 the Concorde Stakes winner Gytrash ran a next-up third in that year’s The Everest results before taking out Rosehill’s $1 million Winners Stakes.

The 2021 Concorde Stakes winner Nature Strip finally saluted as the odds-on favourite in the event at his third attempt.

The latest edition of the Concorde Stakes took place on Saturday September 4th, 2021 and was won by Chris Waller’s $8 million earner Nature Strip.

Concorde Stakes Betting

Concorde Stakes betting markets are dominated by short-distance specialists with strong form over the 1000 – 1100m distance range.

2021 Concorde Stakes Tips

Our insider Concorde Stakes 2021 best bet will be published below the week of the race so stay tuned!

  • To Win: #3 Wild Ruler ($5 at time of publish)

Yes, Nature Strip is in the race, yes we’re betting against the odds-on $8 million earner. Wild Ruler is four-from-four at Randwick and better weighted for this. Nature Strip has a habit of being beaten odds-on and better price offered on Team Snowden’s first-up specialist. Form around Eduardo from the winter and can run a good race fresh.
