Tulloch Stakes 2021

Saturday April 3, 2021

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.

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 Saturday April 3, 2021 and was won by all-the-way champion Yaletown for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott.

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.

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.

  • To Win: #6 Favreau ($4.40 at time of publish)

An open edition of the Tulloch Stakes with plenty of different form lines to follow into the Derby lead-up. Going with Favreau, John Sargent’s Tavistock gelding facing his acid test here on the back of two lead-up wins in easier grade. Last time out carried 58kg to a big 2.3 length win over the mile at Kembla Grange. Was credible when fifth at big odds in last year’s Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes, but looks to have improved and matured since there.
