Ladbrokes Tip: The Surround Stakes is a nice lead-up to the Coolmore Classic each autumn
The Surround Stakes is a Group 1 race for three-year-old fillies run at Royal Randwick Racecourse in early February each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival on Chipping Norton Stakes Day. The event was previously a Group 2 race, but gained Group 1 status for the first time in 2018.
The Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) is the headline race at the meeting, which also features a number of Group 2 support acts on the card.
Run over 1400m at set weights, the Surround Stakes now offers a lucrative $500,000 in prize money.
The race is named in honour of former champion filly Surround who took out the 1976-1977 Australian Champion Racehorse of the Year award. Fillies that run well in the Surround Stakes may back up and step up in class for a shot at the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill a fortnight later.
The latest edition of the Surround Stakes took place on Saturday March 2, 2019 as a support act to Winx winning her third Chipping Norton Stakes.

Surround Stakes Betting & Odds
Surround Stakes odds are released after the field is out on the Wednesday before the race.
In-form fillies coming off good lead-up runs in Sydney earlier in the autumn dominate the Surround Stakes betting markets. Favourites have a strong recent record in the Surround Stakes and the markets are led by Light Fingers Stakes graduates that ran in the first three last time out a fortnight before.
Since More Joyous (2010) completed the Light Fingers Stakes – Surround Stakes double, the only winners of the latter to finish worse than fourth in the lead-up were Thump (2014) who improved on a Light Fingers seventh to win and Shoals (2018) who atoned for a first-up eighth in the Group 3 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1600m) to post her second Group 1 success.

Surround Stakes Field
The Surround Stakes field features a line-up of the season’s best middle-distance fillies that are looking to step up to a mile or further over the autumn. Many fillies in the field come out of the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) held two weeks earlier, which is the traditional lead-up race to the Surround Stakes.
The last filly to complete the Light Fingers Stakes – Surround Stakes double was More Joyous (2010) and before her Gold Edition (2007).
Surround Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race with the final field of acceptances and barrier draw released on the Wednesday.
