Kewney Stakes 2022

Saturday March 12, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: The Kewney Stakes is a good autumn lead-up into the Vinery Stud Stakes

The A.V. Kewney Stakes is a Group 2 race run at Flemington Racecourse on ‘Super Saturday’ each March during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over 1400m the set weights feature is open only to three-year-old fillies and offers $300,000 in prize money including $120,000 to the Kewney Stakes winner and connections.

It is held at the same meeting as the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) and makes a nice lead-up to later autumn features in Sydney including the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) in April. Faint Perfume (2010) was the last filly to complete the Kewney Stakes – Vinery Stud Stakes double.

The latest edition of the Kewney Stakes took place on Saturday March 12, 2022 and was won by The Vanity winning filly Barb Raider at $8.50.

Kewney Stakes Betting

Kewney Stakes odds favour fillies with proven winning form at least up to 1200m and experience at Flemington and the famous straight track.

Favourites have a poor recent record for the punters with upsets not uncommon so it is often worth looking further down the Kewney Stakes betting markets for fillies offering value. In 2018 however the equal favourite in Kewney Stakes betting Bella Martini ($5.50) saluted for the punters, followed by a win for the punters in 2020 with Rubisaki ($3).

Fillies coming off good runs in lead-up races like the Typhoon Tracy Stakes and Angus Armanasco Stakes traditionally sit high up the Kewney Stakes betting odds each Super Saturday. The Typhoon Tracy Stakes produced the 2018 winner Bella Martini who improved on a lead-up sixth in the Moonee Valley race as well as the 2019 Kenwey champ Spanish Whisper (2nd).

More recently the upset 2021 Kewney Stakes winner Starelle improved on a lead-up third in Flemington’s Group 3 The Vanity (1400m), while in 2022 Barb Raider became the latest filly to complete The Vanity – Kewney Stakes double.

The Kewney Stakes field attracts a field of classy middle-distance performing fillies.

Many three-year-olds in the line-up come out of an earlier Flemington run in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) and the double was last achieved by Solicit (2014) who continued on to run second in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill next start followed by Barb Raider (2022).

In 2015, Wawail also improved off a third in The Vanity to win the Group 2.

Another telling lead-up into the Kewney Stakes is the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Blue Diamond Stakes Day and the last filly to take out that race and the Flemington follow-up was Zarita (2008).

Graduates out of the Kewney Stakes field may back-up in the Group 2 Sunline Stakes (1600m) over the Moonee Valley mile on William Reid Stakes night and I Am A Star (2017) was the last to do the double.

Another potential easier next-up option for fillies out of the Kewney Stakes is a trip to Sydney for the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) and Rubisaki (2020) was the last to do the double.

Kewney Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race with the final field of acceptances and the barriers out on the Wednesday.

Kewney Stakes Tips

Kewney Stakes tips include looking for previous winners at Flemington and fillies with proven form over similar distance in Melbourne lead-up races especially The Vanity.

Laying the favourite if there is other in-form fillies with the right lead-up form is another good Kewney Stakes betting tip as double figure hopes have saluted many times in the past decade.

2022 Kewney Stakes Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ exclusive Kewney Stakes betting tis 2022 will be detailed below leading up to Super Saturday so bookmark this page to check out what fillies to back for the win this autumn.

  • To Win: #1 Yearning ($5.50 at time of publish) 

Tipping the Angus Armanasco form to be franked in the Kewney, but not by the first or second placed fillies. A first-up third in that key lead-up from Yearning was eye-catching, last year’s Thousand Guineas winner stripping fitter here and set to relish a return to a mile. Jye McNeil, barrier four and class all on her side. Doesn’t always get the best luck, but if she gets a clear run, she can win at a good price.

Kewney Stakes Form Guide

The Kewney Stakes form guide provides punters with all of the important information on the fillies in the field including their barriers, jockeys, trainers and lead-up form. The Vanity held at the track over the same distance earlier in the autumn is the most successful form race to follow into the Group 2 Kewney Stakes in recent years.

The Kewney Stakes form has also stacked up in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) in Sydney in recent years so taking the winner at Flemington to place in the Rosehill classic can prove a good punt.
