|CF Orr Stakes odds|
The CF Orr Stakes is a quality weight-for-age race that always attracts well above average gallopers and the honour roll over the years has seen many a top class horse on the winner's list, including champion mares Black Caviar (2012) and Typhoon Tracy (2009-10).
Other top class gallopers to win the CF Orr Stakes include All Too Hard (2013), El Segundo (2007), Lonhro (2004), Redoute's Choice (2000), Saintly (1997) and three-time winner Vo Rogue (1988-90), to show the quality of horse to salute in this event.
The Gr2 Australia Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley in January is a good lead up race for the CF Orr Stakes as the step up to 1400m of this race is a natural progression, It also suits those gallopers aiming to contest upcoming longer races such as the Gr2 St George Stakes over 1800m at Caulfield.
Any capable three-year-olds contesting the CF Orr Stakes will generally head on to the Gr1 Australian Guineas at Flemington in March. Cox Plate winner Shamus Award (3rd in 2014) went on to win the Australian Guineas after running third in this race.
Manuel (2019) finished unplaced in the Australia Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley before scoring an upset victory in this event for the Tony McEvoy stable.
Recent CF Orr Stakes winners include Hartnell (2018) and Black Heart Beart (2017).
