Kewney Stakes 2017

Saturday March 11, 2017

Ladbrokes Tip: The Kewney Stakes is a good autumn lead-up into the Vinery Stud Stakes

The A.V. Kewney Stakes is a Group 2 race run at Flemington Racecourse on ‘Super Saturday’ each March during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over 1400m the set weights feature is open only to three-year-old fillies and offers $200,000 in prize money including $120,000 to the Kewney Stakes winner and connections.

It is held at the same meeting as the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) and makes a nice lead-up to later autumn features in Sydney including the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) in April.

The latest edition of the Kewney Stakes takes place on Saturday March 11, 2017 .

Kewney Stakes Field

The Kewney Stakes field attracts a field of classy middle-distance performing fillies.

Many three-year-olds in the line-up come out of an earlier Flemington run in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) and the double was last achieved by Solicit (2014) who continued on to run second in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill next start.

The next year Wawail improved off a third in The Vanity to win the Group 2.

Another telling lead-up into the Kewney Stakes is the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Blue Diamond Stakes Day and the last filly to take out that race and the Flemington follow-up was Zarita (2008). Kewney Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race with the final field of acceptances and the barriers out on the Wednesday.
