Vamos Stakes 2022

Wednesday February 23, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: The Vamos Stakes can serve as a nice autumn lead-up into Adelaide’s Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes!

The Vamos Stakes is a Group 3 weight-for-age race for fillies and mares taking place during the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival on Launceston Cup Day on a Wednesday in mid to late February.

Racing at the meeting is headlined by the Group 3 $250,000 Ladbrokes Launceston Cup (2400m) with the Vamos Stakes – run over 1400m – the key support act on the card.

Offering $150,000 in prize money, the event was first run in 2007 and has held Group 3 status since 2014.

Many of the female gallopers out of the Vamos Stakes may head to Adelaide to target the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) later that year in May.

The latest edition of the Vamos Stakes ran on Wednesday February 23, 2022 on Launceston Cup Day and was won by Bill Ryan’s Take The Sit at 13/1.

Vamos Stakes Betting

Vamos Stakes betting markets traditionally open after the field is announced on the Friday prior to the event running at Launceston Racecourse during the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival. 

Fillies and mares with previous Group 3 or higher winning form, those that performed well the previous spring perhaps interstate in similar grade races and the proven Launceston runners traditionally dominate Vamos Stakes odds.

The older mares are usually better fancied in the Vamos Stakes markets with Deroche (2020) the first three-year-old filly to win since 2006.

Vamos Stakes Field

The Vamos Stakes field attracts a quality line-up of fillies and mares each summer/autumn racing season, many of which may have had a lead-up run in Hobart’s Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy (1200m) a fortnight earlier. 

Plenty of mares have won both races over their careers, but Lady Lynette is the last to do the Bow Mistress Trophy – Vamos Stakes double in the same year. 

Take The Sit (8th in 2022) meanwhile is the last Vamos Stakes winner to come off an run in the Bow Mistress. 

Another potential lead-up is Launceston’s Magic Millions 3YO & 4YO Classic held at the same track / distance the Saturday prior and in 2020 Deroche won both races three days apart as the odds-on favourite in each.

Vamos Stakes Tips

Vamos Stakes tips include backing the proven Group winners in the field, looking for those with a good Launceston strike-rate and avoiding the fillies who have a poor record against the older mares in the event.

Another solid Vamos Stakes betting tip is backing the runners under double-figures with those under $10 in betting dominating the Vamos Stakes results.

Our expert Vamos Stakes 2022 tips will be available below the week of the race so stay tuned.

  • To Win: #6 Boom Dot Com ($13 at time of publish)

Going for a bit of value at $13 with Boom Dot Com who looks to be knocking on the door. Third-up and fit, this five-year-old daughter of Spirit Of Boom has strong form at the track (9:3-2-2) and is also a three-time winner over the distance. Beaten under two lengths when fourth last time out in the Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy and she’s the best out of that race backing-up here. Tipping that form to stack-up.

Vamos Stakes Form Guide

The Vamos Stakes form guide details all of the must know info like the jockeys, trainers and lead-up form of the fillies and mares in the field along with the official Vamos Stakes barrier draw. 

The Vamos Stakes form has gone on to hold up in plenty of stronger grade over the years including in 2021 when the winner Still A Star went on to win that spring’s Group 2 Rose Of Kingston Stakes at Flemington. 

Still A Star also ran in that year’s $5 million The All-Star Mile (1600m), which she had already secured a start in prior to her impressive Vamos Stakes victory.
