Frances Tressady Stakes 2022

Saturday March 5, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: Runners out of the Frances Tressady Stakes often head to Sydney for the Coolmore Classic

The Frances Tressady Stakes is a Group 3 race for fillies and mares conducted at Flemington Racecourse in late February or early March on Australian Guineas Day.

A key support act on the card headlined by the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m), the Frances Tressady Stakes takes place over 1400m and is run at set weights plus penalties.

Offering $200,000 in prize money the event was first run in 1975.

The race is named in honour of former star filly Frances Tressady who claimed the 1923 Victoria Derby – Victorian Oaks double before a fifth over the two miles in the Melbourne Cup.

The event also serves as a lead-up into bigger and better autumn races including Sydney’s Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) held at Rosehill a fortnight later.

Typhoon Tracy (2009) and Aloha (2011) are the latest mares to have completed the Frances Tressady Stakes – Coolmore Classic interstate double.

Typhoon Tracy (2009) is one of the most famous Tressady Stakes winners throughout history winning the event at just her fourth career start. The mare, who would sadly die in 2012 following the birth of her first foal, went on to win six subsequent Group 1 races.

The latest edition of the Frances Tressady Stakes ran on Saturday March 5, 2022 on Flemington’s Australian Guineas Day card and saw the favourite Annavisto ($4.80F) salute first-up for the autumn.

Frances Tressady Stakes Tips

The best Frances Tressady Stakes tips are to look for a single-figure chance with form at HQ coming out of a good lead-up run in a race like the Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes. 

Another good Frances Tressady Stakes betting tip is to back the runners drawn closer to the inside as barrier one has produced three winners since 2009 and in that time just two have jumped from wider than gate eight. 

2022 Frances Tressady Stakes Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider Frances Tressady Stakes 2022 betting tips online will be available right here a day or so out from the Flemington autumn showdown so stay tuned for the fillies and mares to back and sack in the Group 3 this season.

  • To Win: #2 Electric Girl ($10 at time of publish) 

Going for value in this Hawkes Racing-trained five-year-old having her first look at the HQ track. She’s four-from-ten at the distance and was eye-catching at a blowout price when third first-up in the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) in Sydney behind Snapdancer. Think she can frank that form in Melbourne here with improvement to come. Surprised fresh and can surprise a few again in an open race.
