The Premiere Stakes is a Group 2 weight-for-age race held each year in October at Rosehill racecourse in Sydney. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $175,000 in prizemoney. The 2012 Premiere Stakes was won by Red Tracer from Satin Shoes with Emotional Circus third.
Typically held in early August over the years, the Premiere Stakes has been moved to the same day as the Gr1 Epsom Handicap in early October for the 2011/2012 racing season with a total of seven group races on the program, including four Group 1 races.
The Premiere Stakes is a more than handy sprint race that generally attracts very capable types and the level weights playing field favours the classier types. Those horses who previously contested similar weight-for-age races like the Gr3 Missile Stakes at Randwick or Gr2 Warwick Stakes at Warwick Farm are well suited to this event
Some talented gallopers have saluted in the Premiere Stakes including brilliant mare Hot Danish (2010), Triple Honour (2008), Spark of Life (2004), Mr Innocent (1999-2000) & Joanne (1991-92) and it's a race that generally assembles above average sprinters.
Red Tracer (2012) resumed from a spell to win this event and recent Premiere Stakes winners include Neeson (2011) and Hot Danish (2010).
