Ladbrokes Tip: The Tea Rose Stakes is a key guide to the Flight Stakes

The Tea Rose Stakes is a Group 2 race for three-year-old fillies held at Royal Randwick Racecourse in September on George Main Stakes Day during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

The day’s racing is headlined by the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m), which is supported by two Group 2 events: The Shorts (1100m) for the spring sprint stars and the Tea Rose Stakes. Part of the Princess’ Series of races, the Tea Rose Stakes is contested over 1400m at set weights plus penalties and offers a total of $200,000 in total prize money.

It is a traditional lead-up to the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick in October and recent fillies to complete the double include Funstar (2019), Alizee (2017), First Seal (2014), Guleph (2013), Streama (2011), More Joyous (2009) and Samantha Miss (2008).

In 2020 Dame Giselle made it a hat-trick of Princess Series wins taking out the Silver Shadow – Furious – Tea Rose Stakes triple.

The latest edition of the Tea Rose Stakes ran on Saturday September 19, 2020 and was won by the flying Dame Giselle.

Tea Rose Stakes Field

The Tea Rose Stakes field attracts the season’s best middle-distance fillies heading towards a run in the Flight Stakes over a mile back at the track a fortnight later. The fillies that line-up in the Tea Rose Stakes field each spring can come off a number of earlier fillies’ only races including the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) the month before, which Kimberly Star ran second in before her third in the 2015 Tea Rose Stakes two runs later.

In 2017 the Tea Rose Stakes winner Alizee had earlier run second in the Silver Shadow Stakes.

The other popular lead-up run that is also part of the Princess’ Series for 3YO fillies is the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m). In 2014 the Furious Stakes winner Winx went on to run second in both the Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes. She would later win a host of Group 1s including the 2015 and 2016 Cox Plate. That same year Blue Diamond winner and Golden Slipper runner-up Earthquake ran third in both the Furious Stakes and Tea Rose Stakes.

More recently the Furious Stakes produced three of the four Tea Rose Stakes winners from 2016-19 with Foxplay (1st) doing the double, Alizee (4th) and Miss Fabulass (6th).

The Furious Stakes also produced the 2013 Tea Rose – Flight Stakes winner Guelph (2nd). That year the Furious Stakes winner Bound For Earth went on to run third in both the Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes.

Tea Rose Stakes graduates traditionally back-up in the Flight Stakes. In 2015 Honesta ran second in both races and later went on to cross second twice more in Melbourne including in the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington.

The Tea Rose Stakes – Flight Stakes double has been achieved many times in the past decade, most recently by Funstar (2019), Alizee (2017) and First Seal (2014).

First Seal also went on to cross second in that year’s Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m), while Alizee would win features including the Queen Of The Turf (2018) and Futurity Stakes (2019) later in her career.

Plenty of Tea Rose Stakes winners also go on to place in the Flight Stakes trifecta.

In 2020 Dame Giselle won the Silver Shadow – Furious Stakes – Tea Rose Stakes hat-trick.
