The CS Hayes Stakes is a Group 3 race for three-year-old colts & geldings that takes place in February each year at Flemington racecourse in Melbourne during the Melbourne autumn racing carnival. The race is run under set weights & penalty conditions over a distance of 1400 metres with prizemoney of $150,000. The 2017 CS Hayes Stakes was taken out by Hey Doc from Malaise with Land Of Plenty third.
Formerly known as 'The Debonair', the CS Hayes Stakes is named after legendary South Australian trainer Colin S. Hayes and is held on Gr1 Lightning Stakes day, alongside the female equivalent of this race, the Gr3 The Vanity Stakes for fillies.
The CS Hayes Stakes generally attracts above average three-year-olds and the set weights & penalty conditions of the race typically favours the better performed gallopers going around during the autumn. Colts & geldings contesting this race may consider going on to stronger 3yo races like the Gr1 Australian Guineas on Super Saturday of Racing at Flemington or the Gr2 Alister Clarke Stakes at Moonee Valley, both races held in March.
Dash For Cash (2002) was the last galloper to win the CS Hayes Stakes & Australian Guineas in the same year while Lieutenant (2005) took out the most recent CS Hayes Stakes & Alistair Clarke Stakes double. Palentino (2011) went on to win the Australian Guineas after finishing runner-up in this race.
Tavaci (2016) won a BM70 race over 1200m at Pakenham before winning this event and recent CS Hayes Stakes winners include Wandjina (2015) and Hucklebuck (2014).
