Robert Sangster Stakes History and Guide

The Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) takes place at Adelaide’s Morphettville Racecourse annually in April or early May during the Adelaide Racing Carnival.

The race was held in February prior to 2006 and is a weight-for-age sprint race for fillies and mares aged three years and upward.

With $1 million in prizemoney, the Robert Sangster Stakes has traditionally been targeted by the best local fillies and mares but since the race took on Group 1 status in 2005, it has attracted a classier field. 

The race is held alongside the Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m) on what is known as South Australia’s richest day of racing.

Other races on the day include the Group 2 Queen of the South Stakes (1600m), Group 3 SA Chairmans Stakes (2000m) and the Group 3 DC McKay Stakes (1100m).

There is no consistent lead-up race to the Robert Sangster and only two horses in recent years (Platelet 2013 & Universal Queen 2007) have had lead-up Stakes runs in Adelaide before winning the Group 1 event.

First run in 1983, the race was won by Ranee’s Palace when it was named the Swettenham Stud Stakes and was run as a Special race.

High-quality mares that have won the Robert Sangster, such as Platelet 2013 and Black Caviar 2012, have the option of backing up two weeks later in the Group 1 Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville.

Other famous horses to win the race include: Dantelah (1999), Our Egyptian Raine (2003), Alinghi (2005), Bel Mer (2009) and Rostova (2010).

MORPHETTVILLE RACECOURSE TRACK DESCRIPTION

Since the tracks resurfacing in 2002, it has been rated as the best racecourse in the Southern Hemisphere. With its wide and open course, Morphettville remains one of the fairest circuits for horses to race on.

Morphettville Racecourse History

Morphettville Racecourse is South Australia’s largest and premier race track and plays host to up to 70 days of racing action throughout the year.

Located less than 10km from the Adelaide CBD, Morphettville’s race meetings are split between its two tracks; the Morphettville course proper and the Morphettville Parks circuit.

The Parks was official opened in June 2009 and being the inside circuit it has a smaller diameter and is narrower than the course proper.

The SAJC created a world first when installing a retractable winning post with hydraulics that enables the flexibility to alternate the running of races with minimal damage to both tracks.
