The Kewney Stakes is the premier three-year-old fillies event held at Flemington during the autumn racing carnival and the race tends to attract the better class fillies going around. The weighted conditions of the race favours the more talented fillies and they will generally figure in the finish.
Fillies only races like the Gr3 Vanity Stakes at Flemington and Gr2 Angus Armanasco Stakes at Caulfield are excellent lead up races to this event. Solicit (2014) is the last filly to capture the Vanity Stakes & Kewney Stakes double while Zarita (2008) is the most recent winner of the Angus Armanasco Stakes & Kewney Stakes double.
The upcoming Sydney autumn racing carnival & Adelaide racing carnival could be on the horizon for fillies contesting the Kewney Stakes. Faint Perfume (2010) went to Sydney to take out the Gr1 Storm Queen Stakes at Rosehill before going on to run second in the Gr1 ATC Oaks at Randwick.
Gallica (2009) won the Gr1 Australasian Oaks at Morphettville after winning this race and the Kewney Stakes often produces fillies who go on to better things at the highest level.
Spanish Whisper (2019) ran second in the Gr3 Typhoon Tracy Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley before taking out this event for the Lindsay Park stable of David & Ben Hayes & Tom Dabernig.
Recent Kewney Stakes winners include Bella Martini (2018) and I Am A Star (2017).
