Euclase Stakes 2020

Saturday May 2, 2020

Ladbrokes Tip: The Euclase Stakes winner can go on to run in Group races during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival later in the year

The Euclase Stakes is a Group 2 event run at Morphettville Racecourse on Robert Sangster Stakes Day on a Saturday in early May during the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival and is named in honour of the race’s 1991 winner Euclase.

The meeting is headlined by two elite level features with the fillies and mares facing off in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) and the three-year-old staying fillies running in the Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m). Once offering $500,000 in total prize money, the set weights Euclase Stakes is run over 1200m and is open only to three-year-olds.

Prize money for the Euclase Stakes was recently reduced to $250,000 and for 2020 offered only $175,000 in stakes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The best three-year-olds out of the Euclase Stakes often back-up at Morphettville a fortnight later in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m), but their strike rate in the latter feature is poor.

The latest edition of the Euclase Stakes took place on Saturday May 2, 2020 and was narrowly won by class filly Xilong.

Euclase Stakes Odds & Betting

Euclase Stakes betting opens soon after the release of the final field the week of the race and is dominated by in-form local three-year-olds. Runners with proven form at the track and distance usually dominate the Euclase Stakes odds.

Well performing graduates from lead-up races during the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival like the Listed Manihi Classic (1050m) and Listed Redelva Stakes (1050m) are also usually shorter in markets for the Group 2.

In 2014 Miracles Of Life ran second in both the Manihi and Redelva before her Euclase Stakes win. With an increase in prize money to half-a-million-dollars, the quality of Euclase Stakes runners has increased and many interstate raiders now make the trip to Adelaide and feature high-up the markets on the Group 2 sprint.

One of the biggest upsets in the race’s history saw the filly I’ll Have A Bit salute in 2018 at Euclase Stakes odds of $151!

More recently in 2020 Xilong improved on a lead-up fourth in the Redelva Stakes to defeat her last start conqueror Garner in the Euclase Stakes results.

The Euclase Stakes field attracts mainly local three-year-olds that have been racing well over the previous weeks in South Australia. On occasion interstate runners make the trip for the Group 2 sprint and in recent years a number of visitors including Nicoscene (2015) and Sweet Sherry (2017) have been successful in beating home the locals.
