Kindergarten Stakes

The Kindergarten Stakes is a Group 3 race for two-year-olds that takes place in April at Randwick racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales. The race is run over a distance of 1100 metres under set weight conditions and worth $200,000 in prize money. The 2019 Kindergarten Stakes was won by Bivouac from Libertini with Athiri third.

Following the revamp of the Sydney autumn racing carnival the Kindergarten Stakes is now one of a number of feature races on the first day of The Championships, with the main race of the day being the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap.

Date: Saturday 4th April 2020
Track: Randwick racecourse, Sydney
Distance: 1100 metres
Race Type: 2yo - Set Weights
Status: Group 3
Prize Money: $200,000
2019 Winner: Bivouac

The Kindergarten Stakes is a race for two-year-olds only and suits speedy youngsters who may not be able to run a strong 1200m. Horses who may have contested the premier 2yo event of the autumn, the $3.5Million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes the previous week at Rosehill may consider backing up in this event.

Races like the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes for fillies and Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes for colts & geldings held earlier in the carnival at Rosehill are ideal lead-up events as they are run under similar conditions, although both of those races are over 1200m, while the Kindergarten Stakes is only 1100m.

In recent years the Kindergarten Stakes has provided multiple group race winners with Wanted (2009) winning Flemington's premier autumn sprint, the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap the following year, and Solar Charged (2010) taking out the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes at Caulfield later in the spring.

Bivouac (2019) finished fourth in the Group 2 Todman Stakes over 1200m at Randwick before scoring a comfortable win in this event for the James Cummings stable.

Recent Kindergarten Stakes winners include Paquirri (2018) and Property (2017).
