The Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes is a race for females only and the set weight & penalty conditions of the race advantages the better performed mares involved. Mares contesting this event may consider going on to similar mares races during the autumn, including the Gr3 Mannerism Stakes at Caulfield later in the month. Tycoon Tara (2015) is the last mare to win the Bellmaine Stakes & Mannerism Stakes double while Bonaria (3rd in 2014) won the Manneriism Stakes after finishing third in this race.
Generally not a race for superstars, the Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes typically assembles a more than handy field of mares, where the winner is simply a more than handy type, rather than anything special. Griante (4th in 2015) travelled to Sydney the following month to win the Gr3 Wenona Girl Handicap at Randwick during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.
Princess Of Queens (2019) ran fourth in the Gr2 Australia Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley for the Mick Price stable before proving too classy for her rivals in this event.
Recent Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes winners include Prussian Vixen (2017-2018) and Tuscan Sling (2016).
