The Ranvet Stakes is worth $500,000 and last year the title was won by The ForeTeller. Fiveandahalfstar and Mucky Day took second and third respectively.

Over the years the Ranvet Stakes has displayed a number of classy middle distance horses. The event is the perfect lead up test for the BMW and in fact, The Ranvet Stakes is the first 2000M weight-for-age race in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

In recent years, a number of mares have used the Ranvet Stakes as a spring board on their way towards victory in the Group 1 BMW race. Manighar In 2012 took the Ranvet Stakes and The BMW titles in the same year. Other horses that have also managed to achieve this include the Eremien in 2006, The Tuesday Joy in 2008 and the Thesio in 2009.

The Chipping Norton Stakes is a nice lead up race to the Ranvet Stakes and over the last few years, horses that have performed well in the Chipping Norton Stakes have also done very well in the Ranvet Stakes. The Ranvet Stakes is surely one of the biggest annual events in the Australian Horse Racing Calendar. In this year’s event, horse racing fans can expect fireworks at the Rosehill racecourse as some of the best horses in Australia fight it out for the 2014 Ranvet Stakes title.
