The Autumn Stakes is a good quality three-year-old race in the autumn and serves as a good lead up event to the Gr1 Australian Guineas on Super Saturday at Flemington the following month. Heart Of Dreams (3rd in 2009) went on to win the Guineas after placing in this event.
A number of quality gallopers have won this race over the years including Denman (2010), Apache Cat (2006), Special Harmony (2004), Titanic Jack (2003), Dignity Dancer (1999) and St Covet (1995).
The set weight plus penalty conditions of the Autumn Stakes gives an advantage to the classier three-year-olds engaged and more often than not the best horse in the race will typically make his presence felt and prove a tough nut to crack.
Hawkshot (2019) won the VOBIS Gold Carat over 1200m at Moonee Valley before scoring an outstanind all the way victory in this event for the David & Ben Hayes & Tom Dabernig stable.
Recent Autumn Stakes winners include Holy Snow (2018) and Oak Door (2017).
