Tristarc Stakes 2019

Saturday October 19, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: The Tristarc Stakes is a traditional Empire Rose Stakes lead-up in the spring

The Tristarc Stakes is a Group 2 support race on the Caulfield Cup Day card at Caulfield Racecourse in mid-late October each Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The meeting is headlined by the Group 1 $5 million Caulfield Cup (2400m) and along with the Tristarc Stakes the other Group 2 feature on the program is the Caulfield Sprint (1000m). Run over 1400m under set weights plus penalties, the Tristarc Stakes is open only to mares aged four-years-old and above and offers $300,000 in total prize money.

The Tristarc Stakes makes a nice lead-up into the Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. The last mare to complete the Tristarc Stakes – Myer Classic double was Red Tracer (2013).

Our Ladbrokes’ insider Tristarc Stakes 2019 betting tips will be detailed below the week of the race so bookmark this page for the mares to back and sack in the Caulfield Cup Day support act this season.

  • Best Roughie: #1 Invincibella ($14) 

With all the favourites drawing wide in this year’s Tristarc Stakes, a rails draw from the Chris Waller-trained Invincibella puts this always honest six-year-old right in the mix at a nice price. She won the Dane Ripper – Group 1 Tatt’s Tiara double in Brisbane over the winter and is second-up here. Fresh she put in a good effort when fourth in the Group 2 Golden Pendant in Sydney, form that can stack-up here in Melbourne.

Tristarc Stakes Field

The Tristarc Stakes field attracts a collection of the season’s top middle-distance mares many eyeing a Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (formerly known as the Myer Classic) run over the mile on Derby Day a fortnight later.

The traditional lead-up into the Tristarc Stakes field is Flemington’s Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) run over the same distance two weeks earlier. La Passe (2015) was the last mare to complete the Blazer Stakes – Tristarc Stakes double. That same year Jessy Belle ran third in both races.
