The Manfred Stakes is the first group race of the Melbourne autumn for three-year-old gallopers and provides a good hit out at group level for the better class races ahead during the upcoming autumn carnival. Some classy gallopers have won this race over the past few years including Mosheen (2012), Denman (2010), Nicconi (2009) and Haradasun (2007).
Capable three-year-olds engaged in this race might head on to the Group 2 Autumn Stakes at Caulfield on Group 1 CF Orr Stakes day, while fillies might look to the female only Group 3 Boronia Stakes on the same day, as they are raced under similar conditions. Denman (2010) was the last galloper to take out the Manfred Stakes & Autumn Stakes double. San Nicasio (4th in 2015) won the Autumn Stakes at his next start after running fourth in the Autumn Stakes.
Super Seth (2020) spelled after his outstanding Group 1 Caulfield Guineas during the spring racing carnival before resuming in strong style to win this event for trainer Anthony Freedman.
Recent Manfred Stakes winners include Tin Hat (2019) and Cliff's Edge (2018).
