The All Aged Stakes is a thrilling weight-for-age race run over a distance of 1400M. The group 1 race takes places in April every year at the Randwick Racecourse in Sydney. The All Aged Stakes attracts a number of exciting mares from Australia and there is $400,000 worth of prize money in this year’s event. All too Hard took the title last year with Rain Affair and Fiorente taking second and third respectively.
The All Aged Stakes will feature on the last day of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival along with a number of exciting races such as the group 1 ATC Champaign Stakes. The event is seen by many horse trainers and jockeys as an ideal sprint race in the Sydney autumn. The set weight conditions have over the years attracted strong and high profile horses.
The All Aged Stakes is also a perfect progression from the TJ Smith Stakes which is run over a distance of 1200M. Winning the All aged Stakes and the TJ Smith double isn’t easy yet a number of mares in recent years have managed to do that. In 2007, Bentley Biscuit took the double with Shamekha also replicating this success in 2005. In its rich history, the All Aged Stakes has seen some of the best horses in Australia.
Some of the notable mares include the Hay List in 2007, Sunline in 2000 and 2002 as well as the Rough Habit in 1993. Other breathtaking mares to feature in the All Aged Stakes are; All Too Hard in 2013, Shaftesbury Avenue in 1991, and the Intergaze in 1999. The All Aged Stakes is among some of the most thrilling races held at the Randwick racecourse in Sydney.
