Millie Fox Stakes 2020

Saturday February 22, 2020

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 $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.

The latest running of the Millie Fox Stakes took place on Saturday February 22, 2020 and saw Savatiano improve on her third from last year to beat the defending champion White Moss.
