All Aged Stakes Tips - Who does history point towards winning the All Aged Stakes at Randwick?

  • The T.J.Smith Stakes has been a good guide to this race in recent times
  • Chris Waller yet to record a win in the All Aged Stakes
  • Sunline was a two time winner
Dissident won the All Aged Stakes in 2016

The All Aged Stakes (1400m) has a rich history and despite the fact that it is not a part of The Championships at Randwick, it is one of the better races going around on the Australian Calendar, as it always attracts the top gallopers. 

Recent winners include the 2014 horse of the year, Dissident, who defeated Chautauqua, while All Too Hard (2013), Atlantic Jewel (2012) and Hay List (2011) are other recent winners. 

Sunline claimed the All Aged Stakes in 2000 and 2002, while other famous names to feature on the honour roll include the three-time winner, Ajax, as well as Tulloch, Tobin Bronze and Wakeful. 

This year’s edition has attracted a classy field of gallopers and if we look at the trends of the race since 2004, when the distance of the All Aged Stakes was reduced from 1600m to 1400m, there are a few things to consider when it comes to picking a winner. 

The 1400m feature has been a reasonably good one for favourite backers with seven of the past 14 winners scoring as the popular elect, including All Too Hard, Atlantic Jewel in and Hay List in 2011. English won as a $6 chance in 2016. 

Tivaci caused an upset by winning as a $31 pop last year, while Dissident and Hana's Goal (2014) won at the odds of $10. But generally, it has been shorter priced contenders that have come to the fore. The average price of the winning horses has been just $5.70. 

This year, the last start T.J.Smith Stakes (1200m) winner, Trapeze Artist, heads the market at $2.20. Others in the field of 13 that are under $10 are Brave Smash at $7.50, Le Romain at $8.50 and Hartnell at $9. 

 The punters favourite (or laughing stock, depending how you look at it), Tom Melbourne, is at $10, while Showtime heads the rest at $12.  

Trapeze Artist and Showtime are among four horses that are aged three in the race. The others are The Mission and Muraaqeb. Horses aged three to have won the All Aged Stakes in the past 12 years include English (2016), All Too Hard (2013), Atlantic Jewel (2012) and Paratroopers (2006).  

The most successful age group in the time period since 2004 has been the five-year-olds, accounting for five of the winners. Le Romain and Brave Smash are the five-year-olds in this year's field.

Gai Waterhouse won the All Aged Stakes with English in 2016 and in 2007 with Bentley Biscuit, while Shamekha took out the race for her in 2005. This year, she is without a runner. 

The All Aged Stakes has always been at the tail end of the Sydney carnival and has attracted a tantalizing mix of sprinters and milers from races such as the T.J.Smith Stakes (1200m), the Doncaster (1600m) and the George Ryder Stakes (1500m). 

Six of the winners since 2004 have had their previous run in the T.J.Smith and Trapeze Artist will be looking to run the double, just like Hay List in 2011. Le Romain (4th), The Mission (5th) and Brave Smash (7th) also come out of the rich Group 1 for the sprinters. 

The Doncaster Mile, the George Ryder Stakes and the Futurity Stakes (1400m) have provided two winners each since 2004. Tom Melbourne ran 5th in the Doncaster. 

Finally, it is interesting to note that in this race, it has been a slight advantage to draw out as eight of the 14 winners since 2004 have drawn in the outer three barriers. This year, Hartnell, Red Cardinal and Le Romain occupy those spots.
