The Vinery Stud Stakes (formerly Arrowfield Stud Stakes 2000m) takes place at Rosehill Racecourse annually in April and is a premier staying race for three-year-old fillies.

The staying event takes place on Golden Slipper Stakes Day during the Sydney Autumn Carnival and is one of three Group 1 races on the card.

Other feature races on the prestigious day include the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m), Group 1 BMW (2400m), Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m), Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes (1200m), T. L. Baillieu Stakes (1400m) and the Group 3 Neville Selwood Stakes (2000m).

The race distance was elevated to 2000m in 1980 and run at Group 2 level between 1980 and 1992 before inheriting its current Group 1 status in 1993.

The $400,000 prizemoney attracts the country’s best staying three-year-old fillies with many on their way to the prestigious $1 million Australian Oaks (2400m) held two weeks later at Royal Randwick Racecourse.

There are a number of lead-up races prior to the Vinery Stud Stakes, including the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Classic (1500m) and the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m).

Rosehill Racecourse consists of four long sweeping turns and horses that have drawn an inside gate are advantaged. 

It is difficult to lead all the way when the rail is in the true position, but when the rail is out 4 metres or more, all runners are provided an even opportunity.


Rosehill hosts nine Group 1 races throughout the year, during both the spring and autumn carnivals in Sydney.

The Golden Slipper sees the best two-year-old descend on Rosehill chasing one of Australia's most prized races.

Founded in 1947, the Rosehill Racecourse is home to the richest two-year-old race in the world, the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes. 

First held in 1957 the juvenile sprint was won by Todman by an impressive 8 length margin. 

The prestigious The BMW (2400m) is also held at Rosehill and has been won by champion racehorses such as: Hyperno (1978), Kingston Town (1980), Bonecrusher (1986) and Octagonal (1996 & 97).

The track is approximately 23 kilometres to the west of Sydney's city centre and offers quality viewing for punters having modern three tiered stands with bars, restaurants and betting facilities.
