The Underwood Stakes is a Group 1 weight-for-age race held annually each at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne during the Melbourne spring racing carnival in September. The race is run over a distance of 1800 metres and worth $400,000 in prizemoney. The 2015 Underwood Stakes was won by Mourinho from Fawkner with The Cleaner third.

The first weight-for-age middle distance event of the spring at Group 1 level in Melbourne, the the Underwood Stakes will be held alongside the Gr1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes for the 2015/2016 racing season.

2016 Underwood Stakes info
Date: Saturday 24th September 2016
Track: Caulfield racecourse, Melbourne
Distance: 1800 metres
Race Type: Weight-for-age
Status: Group 1
Prizemoney: $400,000
2015 Winner: Mourinho

The Underwood Stakes is run over an uncommon distance of 1800 metres and serves as a good race for those horses looking for longer than 1600 metres and also suits horses who will be stepping up to longer feature race distances around 2000m or 2400m in coming weeks.

Top class horses gallopers such as It's A Dundeel (2014), So You Think (2010), Weekend Hussler (2008), Elvstroem (2004), Northerly (2001-02), Octagonal (1996), Rubiton (1987) and Bonecrusher (1986) have all won the Underwood Stakes over the years and it is a good horse's race.

The Underwood Stakes is the first weight-for-age race of the spring in Melbourne that is longer than the metric mile and has proven to be a reasonable guide to the Caulfield Cup and WS Cox Plate in recent times.

Mourinho (2015) finished sixth in the Gr2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes over 1600m at Moonee Valley before finishing strongly to score a narrow victory in this event and recent Underwood Stakes winners include Foreteller (2015) and It's A Dundeel (2013).
