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 .
