The Hall Mark Stakes is a sprint race for 3yo & upwards gallopers that generally attracts above average horses looking for some black type success for their resume, and more often than not they will have contested similar type races during the autumn.
Earlier carnival races at Rosehill such as the Gr3 Maurice McCarten Stakes and Gr3 Star Kingdom Stakes are handy lead up races to the Hall Mark Stakes and the winner of this race tends to be just a more than handy horse rather than a topliner.
Talenter gallopers Ego's Dare (2010), Winning Hand (1997), All Our Mob (1994) and Euclase (1991) have all won the Hall Mark Stakes over the years. Charlie Boy (5th in 2015) headed to Brisbane to win the Gr3 BRC Sprint at Doomben after finishing fifth in the Hall Mark Stakes.
Redzel (2017) ran second in the Gr1 The Galaxy over 1220m at Rosehill before scoring an impressive victory in this event and recent Hall Mark Stakes winners include Music Magnate (2016) and Our Boy Malachi (2015).
