Ladbrokes Tip: The Millie Fox Stakes makes a good lead-up to the Queen Of The Turf Stakes later in the autumn
The Millie Fox Stakes for fillies and mares is one of three Group 2 races run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Hobartville Stakes Day in February each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
Run over 1300m under set weights plus penalties conditions the race offers $200,000 in total prize money including just under $110,000 to the Millie Fox Stakes winner. Fillies and mares may come into the race via a run in the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) a fortnight earlier and it is a key lead-up to some top autumn features.
Group 1 races could be on the agenda next for the fillies and mares coming out of the Millie Fox Stakes including the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) back at the track the following month and Randwick’s Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) in April during The Championships.
In 2018 Daysee Doom became the latest mare to complete the Millie Fox Stakes – Coolmore Classic double. Neroli in 2009 was the last Millie Fox winner to go on to take out the Queen Of The Turf Stakes that is now run as the Coolmore Legacy Stakes.
The latest edition of the Millie Fox Stakes took place on Saturday February 19, 2022 and was won by the Mark Newnham-trained favourite Expat ($2.60F).

The Millie Fox Stakes field features a collection of the season’s best middle distance performing fillies and mares. The traditional lead-up to the Millie Fox Stakes is the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) two weeks earlier and In Her Time (2017) and Catkins (2015) are the latest to complete the double.
After a run in the Millie Fox Stakes field the better performers could back-up in a race like the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) over the same distance on Randwick Guineas Day. In 2020 the Millie Fox Stakes winner Savatiano backed-up to run second in the Canterbury Stakes results that autumn.
If not the Canterbury Stakes, the Group 3 Aspiration Quality (1600m) over the mile on the same day is another nice next-up option for Millie Fox Stakes graduates.
Millie Fox Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race before the final field and barrier draw on the Wednesday, which is when betting markets open.

- To Win: #2 Rocha Clock ($5 at time of publish)
Wide-open race and a small field makes this a tough one for the punters. Like Rocha Clock at $5 first-up to kick off her autumn with a win. She isn’t a noted fresh performer, but she ended last prep in style with back-to-back seconds in the $1 million The Invitation and Group 1 Hot Danish Stakes stakes at the Rosehill track and think she can beat this field.
