Tancred Stakes 2024

Ladbrokes Tip: The Ranvet Stakes – Tancred Stakes is a popular Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival betting double.

The HE Tancred Stakes, formerly known as The BMW, is a Group 1 race held during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival on a Saturday in late March at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. Offering an incredible $1.5 million in prize money the weight-for-age feature runs over 2400m and is open to horses aged three-years-old and above.

The mile and a half classic is one of two top level events on the Tancred Stakes Race Day card along with the Vinery Stud Stakes. The Tancred Stakes winner is exempt from ballot from the autumn’s richest race the Group 1 $5 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes as well as the Group 1 Sydney Cup run over two miles during The Championships in April.

Horses traditionally come into the Tancred Stakes field via an earlier Rosehill autumn run in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) held over 400m shorter, which from 2012- 2017 produced three winners of the then The BMW including Silent Achiever (2014).

The Ranvet Stakes – Tancred Stakes double was then achieved again in 2019 by the Godolphin galloper Avilius, while Verry Elleegant improved on a lead-up Ranvet second before her 4.3 length win in the 2020 Tancred Stakes results. She went on to run second in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes before a huge spring that included a Caulfield Cup victory.

In 2021 the Ranvet Stakes form again held in the Tancred with the fourth placed Sir Dragonet improving on the quick turnaround to win the latter.

The next year the 2022 Tancred Stakes winner Duais backed up from a win in Flemington’s Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) becoming the first to complete the double since Preferment (2016).

The latest edition of the Tancred Stakes ran on Saturday March 30, 2024 at Rosehill Gardens and was won in a brave performance by Kris Lees’ 30/1 outsider Kalapour.
