Hot Danish Stakes 2019

Saturday November 9, 2019

The Hot Danish Stakes is one of the lucrative races added to the six week The Everest Carnival by Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club (ATC) as their war to win the punters’ attention over the spring continues with Melbourne.

Contested on the second Saturday in November, the same day Flemington hosts Mackinnon Stakes Day on the final day of the coveted Melbourne Cup Carnival, Sydney now has their own feature race meeting that includes the $500,000 Hot Danish Stakes.

The headline event on the program is the $1 million Golden Gift (1100m) for two-year-olds, with the Hot Danish Stakes the key support act on the Rosehill race card.

Named in honour of $2.3 million earner Hot Danish who won the 2010 Group 1 All Aged Stakes – Doomben 10,000 double, The Hot Danish Stakes is open only to fillies and mares.

The Special Conditions event was previously known as the Group 2 Breeders Classic and run in late February over 1200m by mares aged four-years-old and over. The Breeders Classic was run from 1996 – 2019 as a lead-up to the Coolmore Classic during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Later in 2019 after the final edition of the Breeders Classic was won by Champagne Cuddles, the event was boosted as part of the $1 million Golden Gift program in November. The race distance was increased from 1200m to 1400m and the prize money increased from $200,000 to $500,000.

The 2019 edition of the Hot Danish Stakes runs at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday November 9, 2019.
