Run on Tancred Stakes Day, it offers $250,000 in prize money and competes alongside prestigious races like the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) and Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).

This 1200m handicap race serves as a springboard for horses targeting Group 1 glory later in the autumn or the upcoming Brisbane Winter Carnival.

First contested in 1979, it gained Group 3 status in 1988 and has been won by plenty of nice types over the years.

The latest edition of the Star Kingdom Stakes ran on Saturday March 30, 2024 on Tancred Stakes Day at Rosehill and saw the Danny Williams-trained Bandi’s Boy ($15) win in a close upset.

Star Kingdom Stakes Betting

Star Kingdom Stakes odds are usually dominated by in-form sprinters coming via earlier Group lead-up runs over the autumn from local Sydney stables.

There’s been a number of recent upsets with Gem Song ($21 in 2022) and Bandi’s Boy ($15 in 2024) winning at long Star Kingdom Stakes odds.

Star Kingdom Stakes Field

The Star Kingdom Stakes race field attracts a host of good sprinters with form over the 1200m distance with many coming out of similar grade races earlier during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

The Group 3 Maurice McCarten Stakes (1100m) makes a nice lead-up into the Star Kingdom Stakes field each season.

Hoystar (2008) was the last galloper to complete the Maurice McCarten Stakes – Star Kingdom Stakes double.

Following a run in the Star Kingdom Stakes field some horses may test their stamina by stepping up in distance for the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick in April. Jungle Edge, the 2017 winner, placed third in the All Aged Stakes trifecta at his next start.

Star Kingdom Stakes nominations close the Monday of race week with the final field and barrier draw released on the Wednesday.

Our Ladbrokes’ exclusive Star Kingdom Stakes 2024 betting tips will be detailed right here a day or so out from the event so stay tuned for the Star Kingdom Stakes best bets.

  • To Win: #7 Zou Tiger ($10 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Open and intriguing edition of the Star Kingdom with a number of good runners resuming including Zou Tiger who looks lovely value fresh at $10. The John O’Shea-trained Zoustar four-year-old is yet to win at the Rosehill track but has come close on a couple of occasions (4:0-2-1). The 1200m looks just short of his preferred distance, but he was good back in late February winning the Listed Carrington Stakes over 1400m with ease and has trialled well here in the interim. Can surprise.
