The Chipping Norton Stakes is the first Group 1 race of the Sydney autumn racing carnival and generally takes place at Warwick Farm. It is raced under weight-for-age conditions, providing a decided advantage to the better class gallopers engaged.

Top class gallopers Winx (2016), Shoot Out (2012-13), Lonhro (2003), Octagonal (1997), Juggler (1996) and Super Impose (1991-92) have all won this race, while Tie The Knot was good enough to greet the judge first on four consecutive occasions, from 1999 to 2002.

The Group 2 Apollo Stakes has been a good guide to this race in recent years with Winx (2016), Contributer (2015), Grand Armee (2005) and Tuesday Joy (2009) all taking out the Apollo Stakes & Chipping Norton Stakes double, while multiple gallopers have won or placed in both races.

A race such as the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill may be next on the cards for staying types and Theseo (2010), Grand Armee (2005) and Tie The Knot (2000-01) all managed to take out the Chipping Norton Stakes & Ranvet Stakes double in recent times. Talented John O'Shea trained import Hartnell took out the Group 3 Sky High Stakes after finishing runner-up in the Chipping Norton Stakes beforehand.

Winx (2016-2018) resumed from a spell to score another easy victory in this event and recent Chipping Norton Stakes winners prior to the great mare include Contributer (2015) and Boban (2014).
