Ladbrokes Tip: The Sir John Monash Stakes is a nice lead-up into the Bletchingly Stakes.
The Sir John Monash Stakes is one of the final Group races of the season run on a Saturday in early July at Caulfield Racecourse during the Melbourne Winter Racing Carnival. The weight-for-age sprint is contested over 1100m and offers a total of $160,000 in total prize money.
It is the sole Black-Type race on the Caulfield card at the end-of-season meeting and can serve as a nice lead-up race into the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) run back at the track a fortnight later. A number of horses won both events during their careers, but Rubitano (2002) was the last horse to take out the Sir John Monash – Bletchingly Stakes double in the same year.
Many of the best Sir John Monash Stakes horses may also progress onto tougher assignments during the upcoming Sydney and Melbourne Spring Racing Carnivals.
The latest edition of the Sir John Monash Stakes ran on Saturday July 10th, 2021 and was won by Group 1 performer Red Can Man.

Our insider tips on the Sir John Monash Stakes 2021 will be listed here the week of the race so stay tuned for the winter sprinter to back in the Group 3 this season.
- To Win: #1 Viridine ($6 at time of publish)
Open edition of the short-distance Group 3 sprint, with Viridine still at a good price and looking the class horse in the mix. Group 1 placed during his career and still in consistent form. Third in Randwick’s June Stakes at the same distance with more weight last time out, narrowly beaten. Out to break a notable drought going back to last August’s Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) at the Caulfield track, but looks a big chance to get back to winning form.
