Tulloch Stakes 2022

Monday March 28, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: The Tulloch Stakes is a good betting guide to the ATC Derby in Sydney each autumn

The Tulloch Stakes is a Group 2 support race on the Tancred Stakes Day card at Rosehill Gardens* on a Saturday in late March (early April in 2021) each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Two elite levels headline the bill with the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) run at weight-for-age and the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) for the three-year-old fillies.

*The 2022 Tulloch Stakes ran on Monday the 28th of March at Newcastle over 1850m following the abandoned Rosehill meeting the Saturday prior. 

Also run over the 2000m is the Tulloch Stakes for three-year-old colts and geldings that face off at set weights vying for $200,000 in total prize money. The Tulloch Stakes is a traditional lead-up race to the following weekend’s Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) over the mile and a half at Randwick during ‘The Championships’ and the double was last achieved by the likes of:  Starcraft (2004), Jon Snow (2017), Levendi (2018), Angel Of Truth (2019) and Quick Thinker (2000).

The latest edition of the Tulloch Stakes ran on Monday the 28th of March at Newcastle after being postponed from the abandoned Rosehill meeting on Saturday and was won by Godolphin’s Derby-bound Character ($4.60).

The Tulloch Stakes field attracts a quality line-up of three-year-old colts and geldings with staying ambition and potential.

It is run a week before the Australian Derby and is a last minute option for youngsters to make the Group 1 field over 400m further the following Saturday at Sydney’s other leading race track.

Many runners in the Tulloch Stakes field come off an earlier March run at the track in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m). In 2016 Old North ran fourth in the Phar Lap Stakes before his Tulloch Stakes win and the previous year Tulloch Stakes winner Hauraki (2015) came off a Phar Lap Stakes second. Hauraki also backed up to run second in the 2015 ATC Derby.

More recently, the 2020 Tulloch Stakes winner Quick Thinker improved on his lead-up third behind two Group 1 winning fillies – Funstar (1st) and Probabeel (2nd) – in the Phar Lap Stakes results.

The 2021 Tulloch Stakes winner Yaletown was also a Phar Lap Stakes graduate having run fourth the start before the key lead-up, while in 2022 Character won the Tulloch improving on a third placing in the Phar Lap the start prior.

Tulloch Stakes nominations are taken on the Monday before the race runs on the Saturday followed by the release of the final field and barriers on the Wednesday.

Tulloch Stakes Tips

Taking the three-year-olds coming off a top three run in the Phar Lap Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill a fortnight earlier is a top Tulloch Stakes betting tip.

The Phar Lap Stakes form has stacked up in the Tulloch Stakes a number of times in recent years and runners that finished top three in their lead-up run have a top strike-rate in the Group 2 feature.

Looking at locking in a three-year-old out of the Tulloch Stakes for a top three run in the following weekend’s ATC Derby is another tip that has paid dividends in recent years for punters.

  • To Win: #3 Character ($4.60 at time of publish) 

Character was good last time out in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes over the 1500m and think that form line looks pretty strong. Won prior to that fresh at Kembla Grange with a big weight and presents fit third-up for Godolphin. Has only won up to a mile before so the 2000m is a query, but he’s on the right trajectory in an open edition of the Tulloch and was second over 2200m in the Geelong Classic last prep in Melbourne.

Tulloch Stakes Form Guide

The Tulloch Stakes form guide details all the crucial information for punters like the saddlecloth numbers, jockeys, trainers, barriers and lead-up form to follow into the race.

Looking at the form guide for three-year-olds that finished first, second or third in their lead-up run in Sydney is important, and those higher up the markets have a good strike rate in the race.

The Tulloch Stakes form has stacked-up in other three-year-old staying races a number of times in recent years including the ATC Derby.

The Tulloch Stakes – ATC Derby double was completed four years on the trot from 2017-20 with Jon Snow (2017), Levendi (2018), Angel Of Truth (2019) and Quick Thinker (2000) all franking the Tulloch Stakes form in the Group 1 classic next start.
