Sires' Produce Stakes

ATC SIRES' PRODUCE STAKES HISTORY

  • The Sires Stakes is regarded as a sires-making race with such winners as Pride Of Dubai, Pierro, Helmet, Manhattan Rain and Sebring all to graduate in recent years from the racetrack to become leading stallions at stud in Australia.
  • Trainers Peter Snowden and Gai Waterhouse have dominated the Sires this century, winning the race five times and seven times respectively since 2000.
  • The first running of the race as a Group 1 was in 1980, when won by Shaybisc.
  • The race distance of 1400m has remained since 1973.
  • Early champions to win the Sires were Ajax (1937), Tulloch (1957), Wenona (1960), St Covet (1994) and Octagonal (1995).
  • The Sires and Champagne Stakes double has been achieved recently by Guelph (2013), Pierro (2012) and Helmet (2011).
  • Pierro was unbeaten as a juvenile and won the Triple Crown of the Golden Slipper, Sires and Champagne Stakes.
