Sheraco Stakes 2020

Saturday September 12, 2020

Ladbrokes Tip: The Sheraco Stakes is a good lead-up to the Golden Pendant

The Sheraco Stakes, named in honour of 1982 Australian Oaks winner Sheraco, is a Group 2 race offering $200,000 in prize money that takes place at Rosehill Racecourse in mid-September.

Part of The Run To The Rose Stakes Day, which is headlined by the Group 2 Run To The Rose for Golden Rose hopefuls, the Sheraco is a 1200m sprint open to fillies and mares.

First run in 1998 the event is contested at set weights plus penalties and serves as a good lead-up into the Group 2 $400,000 Golden Pendant. Mizzy (2019) was the last mare to complete the Sheraco Stakes – Golden Pendant race double.

This year the Sheraco Stakes ran on Saturday September 12, 2020 and was won by the Chris Waller-trained Haut Brion Her.
