Ladbrokes Tip: The Furious Stakes – Flight Stakes double is popular with punters each spring

The Furious Stakes is a Group 2 race for three-year-old fillies held on Chelmsford Stakes Day at Randwick Racecourse in early September during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. There are three Group 2 races held at the meeting in total with the Furious Stakes joined by the Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) for George Main Stakes hopes and the Tramway Handicap (1400m).

Offering $200,000 in total prize money, the Furious Stakes is run over 1200m at set weights and is part of the Princess Series. The opening leg of the 3YO Fillies’ Princess Series is the Silver Shadow Stakes in August followed by the Furious Stakes, Tea Rose Stakes and finally the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) on Epsom Handicap Day in October.

The Furious Stakes – Flight Stakes double has been achieved most recently by Speak Fondly (2015), Streama (2011) and Samantha Miss (2008).

The latest edition of the Furious Stakes took place on Saturday September 5, 2020 and was won by last start Silver Shadow winner Dame Giselle.

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 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 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) completed the Furious Stakes – Tea Rose Stakes double.

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

Furious Stakes nominations close on the Monday before the race with the field and barrier draw out on the Wednesday.
