The Sunline Stakes is a Group 2 Fillies & Mares Weight-for-age race that takes place annually each March at Moonee Valley racecourse in Melbourne during the Melbourne autumn racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1600 metres with $200,000 in prizemoney. The 2017 Sunline Stakes was won by I Am A Star from French Emotion with First Seal third.
Held on a Friday night under lights, the Sunline Stakes and was formerly known as the 'Diamond Jubilee Stakes' and is held on the same night as the Gr1 William Reid Stakes during the Moonee Valley autumn racing carnival.
The Sunline Stakes is a good class race for fillies & mares that is raced under level weight conditions and typically attracts above average types, rather than the elite. The level weight conditions of the race gives the better performed females a decided advantage over their rivals and more often than not the classier types will fight out the finish.
Mares contesting this event may have previously raced in similar type races such as the Gr3 Mannerism Stakes at Caulfield or the Gr3 Frances Tressady Stakes & Gr3 Matron Stakes at Flemington, which are all races for mares. Noble Protector (2015) claimed the Matron Stakes & Sunline Stakes double when she led all the way to win this race.
Classy mare Lights Of Heaven (2nd in 2013) travelled to Sydney to win the Gr3 Neville Sellwood Stakes over 2000m at Rosehill following her second place finish in this event.
I Am A Star (2017) won the Gr2 Kewney Stakes over 1400m at Flemington before leading all the way to win this race in outstanding fashion and recent Sunline Stakes winners include Miss Rose De Lago (2016) and Noble Protector (2015).
