The Spring Stakes is run at weight-for-age and typically attracts the best available local gallopers suited by the race conditions, while interstate horses may also make the trek to Adelaide in the hope of picking up an easier group race to add to their resume.
It's the only group race offered in Adelaide for the second half of the calendar year and the level weights conditions provide a decided advantage for the better gallopers. The race is run under the same conditions as the Group 3 RN irwin Stakes in March, but the Spring Stakes is an extra 100m in distance.
Some more than handy gallopers have saluted in this event over the years, including Super Elegant (2005), Flavour (2001), Will Fly (1998), Hero Wind (1994-95 & 1997) and brlliant sprinter Redelva in three consecutive years from 1988 to 1990.
Dalasan (2019) resumed from a spell to win this event in classy style for the Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas stable. The classy son of Dalakhani captured the Group 2 Danehill Stakes at Flemington at his next start.
Recent Spring Stakes winners include Dollar For Dollar (2018) and Mio Dio (2017).
