The Boronia Stakes tends to attract more than handy types rather than the elite and provides a good springboard for three-year-old fillies looking to the bigger races ahead during the during the Melbourne autumn racing carnival. The set weight + penalty conditions gives the better gallopers an advantage and typically the classier females will prevail.
A race like the Group 3 Manfred Stakes held earlier in the carnival provides a good lead up to the Boronia Stakes, while the upcoming Group 2 The Vanity Stakes at Flemington and Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes at Caulfield may be next on the agenda for fillies looking for better races over more distance. Sabatini (2015) and Spirits Dance (2014) have both gone on to take out the Boronia Stakes & Angus Armanasco Stakes double in recent years.
How Womantic (2020) captured the VOBIS Gold Carat over 1200m at Moonee Valley prior to scoring a stylish victory in this event for the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace stable.
Recent Boronia Stakes winners include Crack The Code (2019) and Booker (2018).
