The Group 1 Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) takes place at Royal Randwick Racecourse annually in April and is part of Sydney’s Juvenile Triple Crown.

The two-year-old set-weights race takes place on the third to last week of the Sydney Autumn Carnival and is one of four Group 1 races on the card.

Other races on the day include the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap (1600m), Group 1 T J Smith Stakes (1200m), Group 1 AJC Australian Derby (2400), Group 2 Chairmans Handicap (2600m), Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m), Group 3 AJC Carbine Club Stakes (1600m), Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) and the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m).

Glencoe won the inaugural Sires Produce Stakes in 1867 when the race was run over one mile.

Although the race was originally run over one mile and is currently run over 1400m, from 1905 to 1908 the Sires Produce was a six furlong race.

The race now forms part of the two-year-old Triple Crown which includes the Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m), Sires Produce Stakes, and Champagne Stakes (1600m).

With $1 million in prizemoney the Sires Produce Stakes is a natural progression for Golden Slipper runners that can stretch out to beyond a sprinting distance.

Winners of the Sires Produce Stakes have also gone on to compete in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes held at Royal Randwick two weeks later.

Notable winners of the Sires Produce Stakes include: Robinson Crusoe (1876), Chester (1877), Ajax (1937), Shannon (1944), Tulloch (1957), Baguette (1970), Luskin Star (1977), Octagonal (1995), Sebring (2008), Pierro (2012) and Guelph (2013).

Randwick is the largest racetrack in New South Wales and all races are run in a clockwise direction. It is a sweeping track with a rise from the 300m mark to the winning post in the home straight.

As well as the main track, Randwick Racecourse contains a second track known as Kensington. Due to large rainfall in the area, Kensington has been reconstructed using the Strathayr racing surface which is similar to Moonee Valley.

Strathayr is a turf cover over a base of sand, this means it is a free draining track which can take a substantial amount of rain without affecting the rating.


Originally known as the ‘Sandy Course,’ Randwick Racecourse was first used in 1833 where a private match race between two horses was held. 

In 1840 the track was abandoned as a racecourse and used for training purposes before the Australian Jockey Club (AJC) moved its headquarters to Randwick and held a meeting in 1860. 

The Queen Elizabeth II stand was opened to the public on August 4, 1969, and in 1992, Queen Elizabeth II visited Randwick and opened the new $30 million Paddock Grandstand. 

The Australian Derby (2400m) remains one of the longest standing races to be held at Randwick after its inaugural running took place in 1861.

Randwick hosts some of Australia's most iconic Group 1 races throughout the year, during both the spring and autumn carnivals in Sydney.

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Doncaster Mile and TJ Smith Stakes are some of the elite races taking place at Randwick during the prestigious The Championships during the autumn.
