Robert Sangster Stakes Betting

The Robert Sangster Stakes is a unique race on the Australian racing calendar as it is the only sprint race over 1200 metres for fillies and mares (three years and older) at Group One level.

Run under set weights conditions by the South Australian Jockey Club during the Adelaide Autumn Carnival in May, “The Sangster” was originally inaugurated in 1984 as a Listed race but has since been upgraded on multiple occasions and now holds elite Group One status.

Named after late global owner/breeder, the Sangster Stakes carries a purse of $600,000 with winning connections pocketing $384,000, $102,000 for second and $48,000 for third. Connections of horses placed down to tenth (10th) are rewarded with prizemoney also.

The ladies take centre stage on the first day of the Adelaide Autumn Carnival as the Sangster is run alongside the Australasian Oaks.

Many races from varying states are used as lead-ins to the Sangster. In South Australia, The RN Irwin Stakes, Redelva Stakes and Hills Railway Stakes can be used as preparative races.

Won by some excellent fillies and mares, the record books read names such as Alinghi and Shoals but none standout more than Black Caviar’s. She won the race in 2012 before conquering the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot.

The first three Group One editions of the Sangster were won by trainer Lee Freedman, who prepared Alinghi, Ellicorsam and Universal Queen to win in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

As a Group One, Damien Oliver has the most Sangsters; three.
