Tristarc Stakes 2020

Saturday October 17, 2020

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).

The latest edition of the Tristarc Stakes ran on Saturday October 17, 2020 and was won in an upset by Madam Rouge.
