The Percy Sykes Stakes is the major autumn sprint for two-year-old fillies during The Championships at Randwick. It suits those fillies who may have previously competed in female only races like the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes earlier in the carnival. Classy fillies who tackled the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes might consider heading to this race in search of an easier black type race to add to their resume.

The rise in prize money to $500,000 for the Sydney autumn racing carnival is sure to attract many quality fillies in years to come and the Percy Sykes Stakes is sure to grow in stature along the way to become a prestigous autumn event for fiillies.

Anaheed (2019) ran sixth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill before scoring an impressive on-pace victory in this event for the Peter & Paul Snowden stable.

Recent Percy Sykes Stakes winners include Pure Elation (2018) and Shoals (2017).
