HDF McNeil Stakes info
Date: Saturday 30th August 2014
Track: Caulfield racecourse, Melbourne
Distance: 1200 metres
Race Type: 3yo - Set Weights + Penalty
Status: Group 3
Prizemoney: $125,000
2013 Winner: Fast 'n' Rocking

The HDF McNeil Stakes is held on Memsie Stakes day and is an above average 3yo event that attracts a wide variety of three-year-olds who may go on to the bigger sprint or distance races over the spring against their own age.

This McNeil Stakes can often produce winners who go on to become outstanding racehorses with horses such as Starspangledbanner (2009), Scenic Blast (2007), Miss Finland (2006), Bel Esprit (2002), Theatre (1998), Gold Ace (1995) and Sequalo (1993) all having won this race.

More often than not the winner is just a more than handy galloper who will go on to be more than competitive in stronger or similar type events.

Fast 'n' Rocking (2013) finished runner-up in the Gr3 Vain Stakes over 1100m at Caulfield on the way to comfortable victory in this event and recent HDF McNeil Stakes winners include Lady Of Harrods (2012) and Golden Archer (2011).

Spring Carnival Guide
The HDF McNeil Stakes has proven to be an interesting form guide to future spring events over the past few years. Satin Shoes (8th in 2011) ran third behind classy colt Sepoy in the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington and Sistine Angel (2010) ran second in the Gr3 Thousand Guineas Prelude at Caulfield before taking out the Gr2 Edward Manifold Stakes at Flemington.

Both Yosei (4th in 2010) and Shamrocker (7th in 2010) went on to Group 1 success, with Yosei winning the Thousand Guineas at Caulfield later that spring, while the following autumn Shamrocker won the Australian Guineas at Flemington and the ATC Oaks at Randwick.

Starspangledbanner (2009) claimed the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas later in the spring, while Scenic Blast (2007) went on to have a great spring of that year with a second in the Danehill Stakes before a top third in the Coolmore Stud Stakes.
