The Chelmsford Stakes is a the first weight-for-age race over a mile in the new racing season in Sydney and typically acttracts a more than handy field. The Group 1 Winx Stakes, held the previous month at Randwick, provides a good lead up race to this event, as it raced under the same race conditions and stepping stone from 1400m to 1600m is ideal. Champion mare Winx (2017) is the last galloper to win the Winx Stakes and Chelmsford Stakes double.
Generally attracting above average gallopers, the Chelmsford Stakes is considered a good lead up race to the Group 1 George Main Stakes over 1600 metres at Randwick. Classy gallopers Sacred Falls (4th in 2014) and Royal Descent (2nd in 2014) went on finish first and second in the George Main Stakes after contesting the Chelmsford Stakes.
A race such as the Gr2 Hill Stakes at Randwick could also be on the agenda for horses contesting this race, as it's a natural progression in distance, and Junoob (6th in 2014) claimed the Hill Stakes at hs next start. In recent times Moriarty (4th in 2013) and Glencadem Gold (8th in 2013) went on to finish first & second in the Hill Stakes at their next start, while Trusting (2011) took out the Hill Stakes after tasting success in this event.
Samadoubt (2019) captured the Winx Stakes over 1400m at Randwick before leading all the way to win this event in exciting fashion for Warwick Farm trainer Bjorn Baker.
Recent Chelmsford Stakes winners include Unforgotten (2018) and Winx (2017).
