The ATC Sires Produce Stakes is a classic event for two-year-olds that gives young horses their first test at greater than 1200m in a group race during the autumn. Any 2yo galloper who contested the Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes at Rosehill two weeks earlier will most likely be aimed at this event, and the race suits horses who run on strongly in the Slipper where the extra distance of this event may assist.

It's a race that is usually taken out by a very good galloper who will quite often go on to bigger and better things. Quality gallopers Pierro (2012), Samantha Miss (2008), Dance Hero (2004), Victory Vein (2002), Encounter (1997), Octagonal (1995) & St Covet (1994) all won this race as a two-year-old.

This race has been a great guide to the Gr1 Champagne Stakes over 1600m on the final day of the Randwick autumn carnival and in recent times Guelph (2013), Pierro (2012) and Helmet (2011) have all won the Sires Produce Stakes & Champagne Stakes double. Skilled (2nd in 2010), Samantha Miss (2nd in 2008) & Meurice (2nd in 2007) went on to win the Champagne Stakes, while Dance Hero (2004), Hasna (2003), Victory Vein (2002), Viscount (2001), Assertive Lad (2000) all managed to win both races.

Pierro (2012) won the Golden Slipper the previous week at Rosehill on his way to taking out the Golden Slipper & Sires Produce Stakes double, he then won the Gr1 ATC Champagne Stakes at Randwick to claim the Sydney autumn 2yo triple crown for Gai Waterhouse.

Invader (2017) finished runner-up in the Gr2 Todman Stakes over 1200m at Randwick before winning this event and recent Sires Produce Stakes winners include Yankee Rose (2016) and Pride Of Dubai (2015).
