Phar Lap Stakes 2019

Saturday March 16, 2019

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 takes place on Saturday March 16, 2019.

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 recently upgradted Group 1 Surround Stakes (1400m) a fortnight earlier. Trainer Chris Waller prepared three fillies to win in four years with superstar mare Winx (2015), Foxplay (2017) and Unforgotten (2018).

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.

Phar Lap Stakes Form Guide

The Phar Lap Stakes form guide lists crucial information like the jockeys, trainers, barriers and lead-up runs of the three-year-olds in the field. The Phar Lap Stakes form has stacked up in better autumn races in recent years including the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) for the fillies in April with the 2015 Phar Lap winner Winx running second in the Oaks two runs later.

That same year the Phar Lap Stakes runner-up Hauraki went on to win the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) before his second to Mongolian Khan in the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m). In 2009 Whobetgotyou was runner-up to Heart Of Dreams in the Phar Lap Stakes before running third in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) two starts later.

More recently Foxplay (2017) backed-up from her Phar Lap Stakes win two starts later to win Randwick’s Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m).
