The Ranvet Stakes is held at Rosehill Gardens in March each year. It is a premier weight-for-age race that attracts middle-distance staying types.

The race carries $700,000 in prizemoney which ensures that it attracts some of the highest quality gallopers from Australia and New Zealand. 

Staged on Golden Slipper Day, there are five Group 1s run on the program. They are the Ranvet Stakes, George Ryder Stakes (1500m), Rosehill Guineas (2000m), The Galaxy (1100m) and the Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) itself which is worth $3.5 million, making it the richest two-year-old race in the world.

Supporting the Group 1 races are the Group 3 Epona Stakes (1900m), Group 3 NE Manion Cup (2400m) and Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m).

Great Scot (1903) won the inaugural running of the race when it was known as the Rawson Stakes and run over a distance of 1800m. 

Originally a Principal race, the Ranvet Stakes received its current Group 1 status in 1980 and has grown in popularity since.



The Ranvet Stakes is run under weight-for-age conditions and is open to horses three years old and upwards.

Gai Waterhouse is the most successful trainer in the race’s history and has produced seven winners – Stony Bay (1995), Electronic (1996), Grand Armee (2005), Desert War (2007), Tuesday Joy (2008), Theseo (2009-10).

The winner of the Ranvet Stakes is exempt from ballot for The BMW (2400m) held at the same track one week later. 

One race stands head and shoulders above the rest when looking at the best lead-up race. The Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) held at Warwick Farm three weeks earlier is the key indicator for the Ranvet.

Breaking it down, 12 of the past 18 Ranvet Stakes winners have come via the Chipping Norton with five of them winning while another five ran second or third leading into the Ranvet.

The United States is the most recent winner of the Ranvet and he broke the trend by racing in Melbourne prior to his victory in 2016. 

Some classy gallopers have won the race, including Poseidon (1908), Nightmarch (1930), Lough Neagh (1933 & 1936-37), Peter Pan (1935), Bernborough (1946), Redcraze (1957), Tulloch (1958), Sky High (1962-63), Gunsynd (1971 & 1973), Hyperno (1981), Better Loosen Up (1990), Super Impose (1991), Veandercross (1993), Tie The Knot (2000-01), Grand Armee (2005), Eremein (2006), Desert War (2007), Manighar (2012) and Silent Achiever (2014).
