Track: Randwick racecourse, Melbourne
Distance: 1400 metres
Race Type: 3yo Fillies - Set Weights + Penalty
Status: Group 3
Prize Money: $150,000
2019 Winner: Laburnum

The James HB Carr Stakes is a race for fillies only and the set weights & penalty conditions gives the better performed three-year-olds an advantage over their rivals.

Most of the time the winner of this race will simply be an above average galloper who will hold her own in similar type races without rising to any great heights, although now and then a classy type will come along and prove much too good on the day.

Earlier three-year-old fillies races during the carnival like the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes provide a good lead up race to this event. Smart mare Red Tracer (2011) was the last galloper to take out the PJ Bell Stakes & James HB Carr Stakes double, while Catkins (2nd in 2013) won the PJ Bell Stakes before finishing second here.

Laburnum (2019) finished unplaced in the PJ Bell Stakes over 1200m at Randwick before scoring a stylish on pace victory in this event for the James Cummings stable.

Recent James HB Carr Stakes winners include Moss Trip (2018) and Raiment (2017).
