Furious Stakes Betting

The Silver Shadow Stakes has produced more Furious Stakes winners than any other race so is the form-line to follow into the second leg of the Princess Series.

Locally-trained Sydney fillies, those proven over 1400m and top performers from the previous season as two-year-olds also feature prominently in Furious Stakes betting.

Libertini ($1.18 in 2019) followed by Dame Giselle ($3.80 in 2020) are the latest favourites in Furious Stakes betting to salute for the punters. Both fillies also completed the Silver Shadow Stakes – Furious Stakes double.

The Furious Stakes race field features the season’s best middle-distance three-year-old fillies.

The majority of the runners in the field come off an earlier run at Royal Randwick in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m).

Speak Fondly (2015), Formality (2017), Libertini (2019) and Dame Giselle (2020) are the most recent fillies to complete the Silver Shadow Stakes – Furious Stakes double. Speak Fondly also went on to run second in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) next start before also winning the Flight Stakes that spring.

Most fillies coming out of the Furious Stakes field go onto run in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) back at Randwick a fortnight later. In 2014 Winx won the Furious Stakes before seconds in the Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes, that double achieved by First Seal. The year before, the 2013 Furious Stakes winner Bound For Earth finished third in the Tea Rose and Flight Stakes.

More recently, Foxplay (2016) and Dame Giselle (2020) both completed the Furious Stakes – Tea Rose Stakes double.

Other recent Furious Stakes winners to place in the Flight Stakes include North Star Lass (3rd in 2022), Dear Demi (3rd in 2012), Streama (1st in 2011) and More Strawberries (2nd in 2010).
