The 1400m showdown gained Black-Type status in 2005 and has held Group 3 status since 2013.

It takes place on Newcastle Gold Cup Day which is also host to the Group 3 $300,000 Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) for spring cup-bound stayers and the Group 3 $250,000 Cameron Handicap (1500m) for Epsom Handicap hopefuls.

The Tibbie Stakes now offers $250,000 in prize money and is run at set weights plus penalties.

Four-year-old mares may also back-up out of the Tibbie Stakes and contest the now $10 million Golden Eagle (1500m) in October, an event the 2022 Tibbie Stakes winner Hope In Your Heart ran fourth in.

The latest edition of the Tibbie Stakes ran on Friday September 15, 2023 as part of Broadmeadow Racecourse’s popular Newcastle Gold Cup Day card and saw Banana Queen ($17) post an impressive 1.5 length upset.

  • To Win: #6 Mirra View ($8 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Nice price offered on the in-form Mirra View for Team Snowden. The five-year-old daughter of More Than Ready returned to her best last start for a confidence-boosting Black-Type win when defeating a quality field in the Listed Mona Lisa Stakes at Wyong. She presents fitter for the run second-up on Friday with an imposing record two runs in (4:3-0-1). Ticks plenty of other boxes too including three placings from as many starts at Newcastle and a lovely record at the distance (5:3-1-0). Okay weight-wise and looks overs.
