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 prizemoney. The 2018 Kindergarten Stakes was won by Paquirri from Legend Of Condor with Lean Mean Machine 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 6th April 2019|
|Track:||Randwick racecourse, Sydney|
|Race Type:||2yo - Set Weights|
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 Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes the previous week at Rosehill may consider backing up in this event.
Races like the Gr2 Magic Night Stakes for fillies and Gr2 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 Gr1 Newmarket Handicap the following year, and Solar Charged (2010) taking out the Gr3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes at Caulfield later in the spring.
Paquirri (2018) finished unplaced in the Gr2 Todman Stakes over 1200m at Randwick before scoring in this event at big odds and recent Kindergarten Stakes winners include Property (2017) and El Divino (2016).
