The Roman Consul Stakes is a Group 2 set weights race for three-year-olds held annually at Randwick racecourse during the Sydney spring racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $175,000 in prizemoney. The 2012 Roman Consul Stakes was won by Jolie Bay from Knight Exemplar with Your Song third.
The Roman Consul Stakes is a quality three-year-old event that is raced under set weight conditions and favours the classier three-year-olds engaged. The race has been won by many good gallopers throughout the years.
Top three-year-olds Exceed and Excel (2003), Encounter (1997), Anthems (1996) and Our Maizcay (1995) have all won this race and it has been a stepping stone to better things for many a good three-year-old.
In recent times, Shellscrape (2009) went on to run third in the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes on Derby day in Melbourne after winning this event.
Joile Bay (2012) won a Class 1 event over 1000m at Hawkesbury on her way to winning this event and recent Roman Consul Stakes winners have been Foxwedge (2011) and Buffering (2010).
