The CF Orr Stakes is a Group 1 Weight-for-age race held annually each February at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne during the the Melbourne autumn racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1400 metres with prizemoney of $500,000. The 2017 CF Orr Stakes was won by Black Heart Bart from Turn Me Loose with Ecuador third.
CF Orr Stakes day is the second biggest race day of the autumn for the Melbourne Racing Club, second only to Blue Diamond Stakes day a fortnight later at the same track.
The CF Orr Stakes is a quality weight-for-age race that always attracts well above average gallopers and the honour roll over the years has seen many a top class horse on the winner's list, including champion mares Black Caviar (2012) and Typhoon Tracy (2009-10).
Other top class gallopers to win the CF Orr Stakes include All Too Hard (2013), El Segundo (2007), Lonhro (2004), Redoute's Choice (2000), Saintly (1997) and three-time winner Vo Rogue (1988-90), to show the quality of horse to salute in this event.
The Gr2 Australia Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley in January is a good lead up race for the CF Orr Stakes as the step up to 1400m of this race is a natural progression, plus it suits those gallopers wanting to contest upcoming longer races such as the Gr2 St George Stakes over 1800m at Caulfield.
Any capable three-year-olds contesting the CF Orr Stakes will generally head on to the Gr1 Australian Guineas at Flemington in March. Cox Plate winner Shamus Award (3rd in 2014) went on to win the Australian Guineas after running third in this race.
Black Heart Bart (2017) finished runner-up in the Gr2 Australia Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley before his impressive victory in this event and recent CF Orr Stakes winners include Suavito (2016) and Dissident (2015).
