The HobartVille Stakes is a thrilling and exciting group 2 race that is held in late February every year at the Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales. The 1400m race is for three year old horses and is worth $200,000 in prize money. The HobartVille Stakes is run under set weight conditions and it normally attracts a good number of three year old quality horses in Australia.
The 2014 winner in the race was the Dissident with Atlante and Savvy Nature taking second and third respectively. The HobartVille Stakes takes place on the same day with a number of exciting races that include the Group 2 Silver Slippers Stakes and the Group 3 Millie Fox Stakes. The HobartVille Stakes is considered a good three year olds build up event for other bigger races in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
The best progression race for the HobartVille Stakes is the group 1 Randwick Guineas and over the last few years, the race has provided some of the most high quality racing. Horses that do well in the HobartVille Stakes are lined up for other events including the Group 3 Phar Lap Stakes and the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas in March. In 2013, the HobartVille Stakes provided a number of group 1 winners in later races in the Carnival. Pierro for example won the HobartVille Stakes on course towards victory in both the Canterbury Stakes and the George Ryder Stakes.
It’s A Dundeel also was one of the horses that used the HobartVille Stakes as a spring board towards future success in the Sydney carnival. After finishing fourth in the HobartVille Stakes last year, the mare would go one to win the ATC Australian Derby and The Rosehill Guineas. Recent winners in the HobartVille Stakes include Pierro in 2013, Wild and Proud and the Dissident this year.
