Ladbrokes Tip: The Talindert Stakes is the best guide to the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes

The VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, formerly the Henry Bucks Sires’ Produce Stakes, is a Group 2 support act on ‘Super Saturday’ at Flemington Racecourse during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Open only to two-year-olds and run over 1400m at set weights, the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes runs on a Saturday in early March and takes place at the same meeting as the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m).

The race offers a total of $200,000 in prize money including $120,000 to the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes winner. It was demoted from a Group 1 race to a Group 2 event in 2005 and remains the first two-year-old Group-status race over further than 1200m during the autumn carnival season.
