Yes Yes Yes Stakes 2020

Saturday October 31, 2020

The Winners Stakes – run in 2020 as the Yes Yes Yes Stakes – is one of the newest feature races held over the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival running at Rosehill Gardens on The Golden Eagle Day in early November as part of the revamped Everest Carnival that offers over $46 million in total prize money!

The $7.5 million Golden Eagle for four-year-olds now rivals Melbourne’s Victoria Derby Day action on the Saturday prior to the Melbourne Cup for the punters’ attention and is now supported by the $1 million Winners Stakes, run in 2019 as the Redzel Stakes and in 2020 as the Yes Yes Yes Stakes.

The other feature race added to the Rosehill race card at the meeting is the $500,000 Rosehill Gold Cup (2000m), the trio of Special Condition races boosting the overall prize money to $9 million on offer across the day.

The Winners Stakes is a 1300m middle-distance sprint race offering $1 million in prize money run under set weight and penalty conditions.

Each Sydney Spring Racing Carnival the Winners Stakes will be renamed in honour of the previous year’s The Everest winner. Accordingly, the inaugural edition of the race was known as The Redzel Stakes 2019.

Redzel (2017, 2018) won the opening two editions of the world’s richest turf race – The Everest but failed in his attempt at the three-peat in 2019.

The 2020 Winners Stakes was known as the Yes Yes Yes Stakes after Chris Waller’s gun three-year-old won the 2019 The Everest and was won by the favourite Gytrash.

Next spring, the Winners Stakes in 2021 will be run as the Classique Legend Stakes after a brilliant 2020 The Everest win by the classy grey.

The 2020 edition of the Winners Stakes ran as the Yes Yes Yes Stakes on Saturday October 31, 2020 and was won by The Everest third-placegetter Gytrash.

Yes Yes Yes Stakes Betting

Betting on the Yes Yes Yes Stakes in the spring is led by in-form sprint types coming off nice form in lead-up races in Sydney.

Good events to keep an eye on that will likely impact Winners Stakes betting each season include the Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) at Randwick in mid-September and of course the $15 million The Everest (1200m) held a fortnight before.

The inaugural Winners Stakes winner was Pierata who took out the 2019 Redzel Stakes on the back of a fifth in The Everest.

The following year the Winners Stakes (run as the Yes Yes Yes Stakes) was won by the favourite in betting Gytrash who was backing-up from a third in The Everest race.

Winners Stakes betting on The Everest graduates and Rosehill track specialists will be firm, especially on local hopes opting to stay in Sydney over a trip to Melbourne for the Cup Carnival Group 1s at Flemington that same week.

Yes Yes Yes Stakes Field

The Winners Stakes field attracts sprinters and middle-distance runners alike chasing the lucrative prize money on offer in Sydney. Many of these horses may previously have targeted the following Saturday’s Group 1 VRC Classic (1200m) down the Flemington straight, but the Winners Stakes field now provides horses better suited to the Rosehill track a shot at a nice feature race win without having to race over the ‘Straight Six’ in Melbourne.

Sprinters out of The Everest field the month before may also opt to back-up in the Yes Yes Yes Stakes field, which will suit horses with form over 1200m – 1400m as opposed to the genuine short-distance runners. The Everest – Winners Stakes double becomes a new feature for connections to target and for punters to enjoy a spring bet on.

The Winners Stakes field boasts a capacity 16 starters.

  • To Win: #1 Gytrash ($2.90 at time of publish) 

Hard to knock the favourite even from the wider draw (12), which shouldn’t be too much of an issue here over the 1300m. Comes off that nice third in The Everest and has been the picture of consistency at the top level of racing this past season. Needs to get out in distance but can do it on class alone.
