Boronia Stakes

The Boronia Stakes is a Group 3 race for three-year-old fillies only that takes place in February each year at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne during the Melbourne autumn racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres under set weight & penalty conditions and offers $150,000 in prizemoney. The 2018 Boronia Stakes was won by Booker from Leather'n'lace with See Me Exceed third.

Upgraded to Group 3 status for the 2013/2014 racing season, the Boronia Stakes is held on Gr1 CF Orr Stakes day at Caulfield and has been run as the 'Kevin Hayes Stakes' in recent years.

Boronia Stakes info

Date: Saturday 9th February 2019
Track: Caulfield racecourse, Melbourne
Distance: 1200 metres
Race Type: 3yo Fillies - Set Weights + Penalty
Status: Group 3
Prizemoney: $150,000
2018 Winner: Booker

The Boronia Stakes tends to attract more than handy types rather than the elite and provides a good springboard for three-year-old fillies looking to the bigger races ahead during the autumn carnival. The set weight + penalty conditions gives the better gallopers an advantage and typically the classier females will prevail.

A race like the Gr3 Manfred Stakes held earlier in the carnival provides a good lead up to the Boronia Stakes, while the upcoming Gr2 The Vanity Stakes at Flemington and Gr2 Angus Armanasco Stakes at Caulfield may be next on the agenda for fillies looking for better races over more distance. Sabatini (2015) and Spirits Dance (2014) have both gone on to take out the Boronia Stakes & Angus Armanasco Stakes double in recent years.

Booker (2018) led all the way to win this race first-up from a spell and recent Boronia Stakes winners include Fuhryk (2017) and Risque (2016).
