The Challenge Stakes is a Group 2 weight-for-age race held annually each March at Randwick racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales during the autumn racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1000 metres and worth $400,000 in prizemoney. The 2016 Challenge Stakes was won by English from Kinglike with Boss Lane third.

Held on on the same day as the Gr1 Randwick Guineas and Gr1 Canterbury Stakes, the Challenge Stakes is one of the better weight-for-age sprint events of the early autumn.

Challenge Stakes info
Date: Saturday 5th March 2016
Track: Randwick racecourse, Sydney
Distance: 1000 metres
Race Type: Weight-for-age
Status: Group 2
Prizemoney: $400,000
2016 Winner: English

The Challenge Stakes is a good quality sprint race run under weight-for-age conditions and generally sees a field of more than handy sprinters assembled. The better quality horses entered for the race have a decided advantage under the weight scale and more often than not the classier gallopers will figure in the finish.

Sprinters from this race may consider upping the ante and taking on the elite gallopers in the upcoming Gr1 The Galaxy on Golden Slipper day at Rosehill or the Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes on Doncaster day at Randwick.

English (2016) resumed fron a lengthy spell to win this event in classy style and recent Challenge Stakes winners include Miracles Of Life (2015) and Villa Verde (2014).
