The All Aged Stakes is a is a classy sprint race that usually attracts top quality horses due to the weight-for-age conditions giving classier gallopers a decided advantage. The 1400m distance of this race makes it the ideal progression from the Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes which is run over 1200m under the same conditions earlier in the carnival at Randwick.
In recent times Trapeze Artist (2018), Bentley Biscuit (2007) and Shamekha (2005) have all claimed the TJ Smith & All Aged Stakes double, while Hot Danish (2010) and Melito (2nd in 2010) reversed positions from the TJ Smith on their way to running one-two in the All Aged Stakes at their next start.
Some classy gallopers have greeted the judge in the All Aged Stakes over the years with All Too Hard (2013), Hay List (2011), Sunline (2000/2002), Intergaze (1999), All Our Mob (1997), Rough Habit (1992-93) and Shaftesbury Avenue (1991) all winners of this race.
Ill-fated mare Hot Danish (2010) travelled to Brisbane to claim the Gr1 Doomben 10,000 at Doomben after winning this race and Melito (2nd in 2010) finished runner-up in the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap before taking out the Gr1 Winter Stakes for fillies & mares on the final day of the Brisbane winter carnival at Eagle Farm.
Trapeze Artist (2018) captured the TJ Smith Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill before scoring a thrilling victory in this event and recent All Aged Stakes winners include Tivaci (2017) and English (2016).
