Where to bet on the Tattersall’s Tiara
Tattersall’s Tiara History and Guide
The Tattersall’s Tiara, formerly known as the Winter Stakes, is the final Group 1 race of the season in Australia and takes place in June each year.
Held on the last day of the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival, the weight-for-age conditions race carries a prize fund of $500,000 and is limited to fillies and mares aged three-years-old and upwards. It is run over the distance of 1400m.
The race was first held in 1989 when introduced as the listed Winter Stakes before being upgraded to a Group 3 contest in 1996 and Group 2 status a decade later. It was quickly made up into a Group 1 and became the Tattersall’s Tiara in 2012 when taking on the name of the Tattersall’s Racing Club who run and organise the race meeting.
The list of star fillies and mares to have won the Tattersall’s Tiara include inaugural winner La Posette (1989), Piper’s Belle (1990), Zetoile (1994), Mamzelle Pedrille (1995), Tripping (1996), Dane Ripper (1997), Bonanova (2000 and 2001), Mon Mekki (2003), Miss Potential (2004), Nova Star (2007), Russeting (2009), Melito (2010), Yosei (2011), Red Tracer (2013), Cosmic Endeavour (2014) and Srikandi (2015).
The path to the Tattersall’s Tiara is traditionally via the Group 3 Lady Of The Turf Stakes, which takes place over 1350m at Doomben Racecourse during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, and the Group 3 Dane Ripper Stakes, which is staged over 1400m on Stradbroke Handicap Day two weeks before the Tattersall’s Tiara.
Joining the Tattersall’s Tiara on the schedule are the Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup and the Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes.
The name of the Winter Stakes continues to be used in Australian racing as Warwick Farm stages a listed race of the same name each July.
