Ladbrokes Tip: Don’t back a horse that ran worse than fourth in the lead-up to the Inglis Sires’.
The ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes, referred to as simply the Inglis Sires’, is one of the four Group 1 highlights on the Doncaster Mile Day card at Royal Randwick Racecourse on the first Saturday in April.
The meeting makes up Day 1 of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival’s coveted The Championships and the other top level races on the card are the Doncaster Mile, TJ Smith Stakes and Australian Derby.
Open to two-year-olds and run at set weights, the ATC Inglis Sires’ offers $1 million in total prize money including $600,000 to the winning juvenile. Colts and geldings carry 56.5kg and the fillies 54.5kg over the 1400m. No lead-up races offer an ATC Inglis’ Sires Produce Stakes ballot exemption so the form coming into the classic is varied but the Golden Slipper Stakes traditionally provides the winner.
The Golden Slipper Stakes is the first leg of the Sydney Two-Years-Old Triple Crown followed by the Inglis Sires’ and then the Champagne Stakes. Pierro (2012) was the last juvenile to complete the coveted autumn Triple Crown and joined just five other Australian turf champions in doing so.
The latest edition of the ATC Sires Produce Stakes took place on Saturday April 1, 2017.

ATC Sires Produce Stakes Odds & Betting
ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes betting is led by two-year-olds that ran top four in their final lead-up run with only one winner since 1990 having run worse than fourth in their last Group lead-up. From 2006 – 2017 just three Inglis Sires’ favourites saluted for the punters when Camarilla (2007) and Sebring (2008) went back-to-back and Yankee Rose (2016) got the job done eight years later.
Longer priced hopes in the Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes odds have a good record but there was still only one double figure winner in that time when Yosei scored the upset at $17 in 2010.
Horses coming off a Golden Slipper Stakes lead-up dominate the markets and the feature juvenile’s race of the year has produced more ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce winners than any other event.
