The Newcastle Spring Stakes is the feature three-year-old race held during the two day Newcastle spring carnival and quite often attracts good quality gallopers who may bypass the bigger 3yo races on offer at Rosehill and Randwick for an easier group race to tackle.
Some more than handy gallopers have won this event over the years including Clangalang (2002), Universal Prince (2000), Shogun Lodge (1999) and Encounter (1997).
Previous winners and placegetters of the Spring Stakes have gone on to perform well in the Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes over the years and also the listed Dulcify Quality to a lesser extent.
In recent times Sousa (2008), Hotel Grand (2005), Universal Prince (2000), Coronation Day (1992) and Imprimatur (1986) all managed to go on and win the Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick on Epsom Handicap day after winning the Spring Stakes, while Darci Be Good (2011) finished runner-up to Doctor Doom.
Proisir (2012) won a BM69 event over 1400m at Rosehill on his way to winning this event and recent Newcastle Spring Stakes winners have been Darci Be Good (2011) and Ilovethiscity (2010).
Newcastle Track Map Newcastle race track is a flat track which has a circumference of 2000m and horses race in a clockwise direction. The track surface is turf and the straight length is 415m.
