COOLMORE CLASSIC HISTORY & GUIDE

The Group 1 Coolmore Stud Classic (1500m) takes place at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse annually in March during the Sydney Autumn Carnival and is a premier race for fillies and mares. 

The Coolmore Stud Classic is one of two Group 1 races for fillies and mares during the Sydney Autumn Carnival, with the other being the Queen of the Turf Stakes which is held on AJC Australian Oaks Day at Randwick.

With $600,000  in prizemoney, it attracts the best mile/middle distance horses from Australia and and is part of a fantastic day of racing that includes the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m), Group 2 Todman Slipper Trial (1200m), Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) and the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m).

The registered name of the race is Thomas Arthur David (TAD) Kennedy Stakes and was named after former horse trainer and Sydney Turf Club Committeeman Thomas Kennedy.

It was first run in 1973 when won by Miss Personality and has grown in stature to become one of the Sydney Autumn Carnival’s most revered races.

The Coolmore Stud Classic is run under handicap conditions over and is open to fillies and mares aged three years and upward.

The winner of the race is exempt from ballot for the Doncaster Handicap (1600m) held at Randwick Racecourse three weeks later.

The most reliable lead-up race to the Coolmore Stud Stakes is the Group 2 Surrround Stakes (1500m) at Warwick Farm run two weeks earlier on Chipping Norton Stakes Day.

Some classy female gallopers have won the race, including Vicenza (1975), Emancipation (1984), Skating (1993), Sunline (2000 & 2002), Tuesday Joy (2007), Typoon Tracy (2009) and more recently, Appearance in 2013.

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.
