Track: Caulfield racecourse, Melbourne

Race Type: Fillies & Mares - Set Weights + Penalty
Status: Group 3
Prize Money: $150,000
2020 Winner: Sylvia's Mother

The Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes is a race for females only and the set weight & penalty conditions of the race advantages the better performed mares involved. Mares contesting this event may consider going on to similar mares races during the autumn, including the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes at Caulfield later in the month. Tycoon Tara (2015) is the last mare to win the Bellmaine Stakes & Mannerism Stakes double while Bonaria (3rd in 2014) won the Manneriism Stakes after finishing third in this race.

Generally not a race for superstars, the Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes typically assembles a more than handy field of mares, where the winner is simply a more than handy type, rather than anything special. Griante (4th in 2015) travelled to Sydney the following month to win the Group 3 Wenona Girl Handicap at Randwick during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.

Sylvia's Mother (2020) resumed from a 5-month spell to score a slashing victory in this event for the training combination of Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes. The talented Snitzel mare captured the Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes at Flemington at her next start.

Recent Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes winners include Princess Of Queens (2019) and Prussian Vixen (2017-2018).
