The RN Irwin Stakes is a Group 3 weight-for-age race for sprinters that takes place each year in April at Morphettville racecourse in Adelaide, South Australia during the Adelaide autumn racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1100 metres and worth $120,000 in prizemoney. The 2017 RN Irwin Stakes was won by Viddora from Illustrious Lad with I Am Gypsy third.
Held on the same day as the Group 3 Auraria Stakes, the RN Irwin Stakes is the only weight-for-age group race of the Adelaide autumn carnival.
The RN Irwin Stakes tends to attract above average gallopers due to the level weights playing field and has been won by some nice sprinting types over the years including Avenue (2011), Here De Angels (2008), Bomber Bill (2003), Sports (1999), Street Ruffian (1992), Jet Fighter (1989) and champion SA galloper Redelva (1988).
Sprinters contesting this event may go on to races such as the Gr3 DC Mckay Stakes or the feature Adelaide autumn sprint, the Gr1 Goodwood, later in the carnival. Essay Raider (4th in 2014) went on to win the DC Mckay Stakes after running fourth in this race, while Blahnik (3rd in 2009) finished third in both the Irwin Stakes and Mckay Stakes.
Classy Gai Waterhouse trained sprinter Driefontein (2014) managed to go on and win the Gr1 Robert Sangster Stakes after winning this event, claiming the Irwin Stakes & Sangster Stakes double in the process.
Classy mare Platelet (2nd in 2013) finished runner up in this race before claiming both the Sangster Stakes and Goodwood at her next two starts, she then returned in 2014 to finish second behind Driefontein (2014) in both the Irwin & Sangster Stakes.
Viddora (2017) ran second in the Listed Manihi Stakes over 1100m at Morphettville before taking out this event and recent RN Irwin Stakes winners include Nostradamus (2016) and Daytona Grey (2015).
