The Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes is a Group 2 race run under weight-for-age conditions each September at Moonee Valley racecourse during the Melbourne spring racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1600 metres and worth $250,000 in prizemoney. The 2015 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes was won by The Cleaner from Bagman with Dibayani third.

From 1984 to 2004 the race was known as the ‘John F. Feehan Stakes’, before being changed to the ‘Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes’ from 2005 onwards, and is held on the same day as the Gr2 McEwen Stakes.

The Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes takes place at the tight Moonee Valley race track over 1600 metres early in the spring and generally attracts quality milers and often some top class horses on the way to bigger and better things. The race has grown in stature in recent times and many of our best horses now compete in this race and have then gone on to victory in some of our biggest feature races of the spring.

The Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes has been a great guide to spring feature races over the past few years, with winners and placegetters providing Melbourne Cup and Caulfield Cup winners and a high percentage of WS Cox Plate winners.

Three-time Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva (2nd in 2004-2005) was twice a runner-up in this event on her way to her last two Cup wins, while Green Moon (2nd in 2012) went on to claim the 'race that stops a nation' after running second in this event. Dual Cox Plate winners Fields Of Omagh (2002), Northerly (2001) and Sunline (2000) were all winners of this race.

Other classy horses to win the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes include Whobegotyou (2009-2010), El Segundo (2007) and Better Loosen Up (1990), and the race is generally taken out by a quality galloper who may go on to record more feature race wins throughout the spring.

The Cleaner (2014-15) finished runner-up in the Gr2 PB Lawrence Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield before leading all the way to win this event for the second year in a row and recent Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes winners include Fiorente (2013) and Happy Trails (2012).

Spring Carnival Guide
Mourinho (6th in 2015) and Foreteller (3rd in 2014) both won the Gr1 Underwood Stakes at Caulfield at their next start. Crackerjack King (8th in 2014) finished third in the Underwood Stakes and Gris Caro (7th in 2014) took out the Gr3 Naturalism Stakes.

Fiorente (2013) went on to finish third in the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley before winning the Melbourne Cup at Flemington on the first Tuesday in November.

Happy Trails (2012) managed to win the Gr1 Emirates Stakes during the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington after winning this race while runner-up Green Moon (2nd in 2012) went on to win the Gr1 Turnbull Stakes at Flemington before taking out the Melbourne Cup at the same track.

Rekindled Interest (2011) went on to run third in both the WS Cox Plate at Moonee Valley and Gr1 Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington after winning this race, before returning to run third in this race the following year.

Valley specialist Whobegotyou (2009-10, 3rd in 2011) twice won this race before finishing third in his hat-trick attempt. He went on to win races such as the Gr1 Underwood Stakes and Gr1 Caulfield Stakes during a wonderful career, which also included a third placing in the 2012 WS Cox Plate.

The Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes has been a pivotal race of the spring in the past few years and it may pay to keep a close eye on horses who perform well in this year's event.
