Phar Lap Stakes 2017

Saturday March 11, 2017

Ladbrokes Tip: The Phar Lap is a good guide to both the ATC Oaks and ATC Derby during The Championships

The Phar Lap Stakes is one of two Group 2 races run at Rosehill Racecourse on a Saturday in mid-March as part of Coolmore Classic Day during the annual Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

The Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) for fillies and mares is the meeting’s highlight race, while the Phar Lap Stakes is another major feature on the card. Run over the same 1500m distance as the Group 1, the Phar Lap Stakes is an open gender race for three-years-old run at set weights with colts and geldings carrying 56.5kg and the fillies allocated 54.5kg.

The Phar Lap Stakes offers $200,000 in total prize money including $115,000 to the winner and connections. The race is a good lead-up for three-year-olds looking to step out over more distance in races like the Group 1 ATC Oaks and ATC Derby run over 2400m at Randwick Racecourse later in the autumn.

The latest edition of the Phar Lap Stakes took place on Saturday March 11, 2017 .

Phar Lap Stakes Tips

Fillies have a great recent record over the boys in the Phar Lap Stakes and make good tips in the race especially those coming out of the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) a fortnight earlier.

In 2015 Supara ran second in the Surround Stakes and then third to Winx in the Phar Lap Stakes. Taking in-form hopefuls at single figures is also a good Phar Lap Stakes betting tip with those at longer odds rarely successful.
