Up and Coming Stakes info

Date: Saturday 22nd August 2020
Track: Randwick racecourse, Sydney
Distance: 1300 metres
Race Type: 3yo C&G - Quality
Status: Group 3
Prize Money: $150,000
2020 Winner: North Pacific

The Up and Coming Stakes provides the ideal follow up race from the Gr3 San Domenico Stakes run earlier in the new season at Rosehill. It suits those three-year-olds looking for a step up in distance after the shorter trip of the San Domenico. Manawanui (2011) went on to win the $1,000,000 Group 1 Golden Rose at Rosehill after winning this race.

Always a good returning race for talented three-year-olds gearing up for a spring campaign, the race is often often won by a classy 3yo, as evidenced by the honour roll of past winners.

Top class gallopers Fastnet Rock (2004), Exceed and Excel (2003), Testa Rossa (1999) and the flying General Nediym (1997) have all won this race and each of these gallopers went on to become genuine stars of the turf.

Competitors from this event might head on the other 3yo races held during the spring including the Gr3 Spring Stakes at Newcastle or the Gr3 Gloaming Stakes at Rosehill, which both take place in September.

True Detective (2019) finished runner-up to Misteed in a 3&4YO BM70 race over 1200m at Randwick before scoring a classy viuctory in this event for the Chris Waller stable.

Recent Up And Coming Stakes winners include Master Ash (2018) and Dracarys (2017).
