CS Hayes Stakes 2022

Saturday February 19, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: The CS Hayes Stakes has a long history of producing Australian Guineas winners

The CS Hayes Stakes is a Group 3 race run and won over 1400m at Flemington Racecourse on Black Caviar Lightning Day each Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

A key support act on the card that is headlined by the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) for sprinters, the CS Hayes Stakes also runs on the same day as the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) for fillies.

Open only to three-year-old colts and geldings, the set weights plus penalties race offers $200,000 in prize money and was first contested in 1987.

The event is named in honour of the late, great South Australian-based trainer Colin Hayes who, alongside TJ Smith and Bart Cummings, holds Legend status in the Australian Racing Hall of Fame.

The CS Hayes Stakes serves as a key lead-up into the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) back at the track over a mile and and Alligator Blood (2020) was the last to complete the double.

The latest edition of the CS Hayes Stakes ran on Saturday February 19, 2022 at Flemington Racecourse and was won by the undefeated Enver Jusufovic-trianed .

CS Hayes Stakes Tips

CS Hayes Stakes tips include backing the proven Group performers, looking for those with a good Flemington strike-rate and watching for past elite level winners in the mix. For example, the 2021 CS Hayes Stakes winner Tagaloa had won the previous year’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) as a juvenile. 

Looking at the form on the rails-drawn runner is also a good CS Hayes Stakes tip as barrier one has produced three recent winners: Hucklebuck (2014), Alligator Blood (2020) and Tagaloa (2021). 

2022 CS Hayes Stakes Tips

Our expert CS Hayes Stakes 2022 tips will be available below the week of the race so stay tuned.

  • To Win: #2 Forgot You ($9.50 at time of publish)

Good value on offer in this season’s CS Hayes and first-up Forgot You looks a nice price at close to $10. The Savabeel colt was good in the spring winning the Moonee Valley Vase before at fifth in the Derby where the 2500m found him out. Twice placed when resuming and while he’ll be better over further, the 1400m at the start of his campaign in an open race should be okay.
