The Light Fingers Stakes is a level weights race for 3yo fillies that usually attracts more than handy females on their way to the bigger races on offer in coming weeks. Fillies only events like the upcoming Group 3 Millie Fox Stakes at Rosehill or the Group 2 Surround Stakes at Warwick Farm are likely races on the agenda for fillies tackling this event.
Classy types Sea Siren (2012), More Joyous (2011), Gold Edition (2007), Assertive Lass (1997), Skating (1993) and Joanne (1990) have all won this race and more often than not the winner of this race will be an above average type.
Top galloper Dear Demi (3rd in 2013) won the Surround Stakes after running third in this race, before running second in the Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks at Randwick later in the carnival.
Flit (2020) resumed from a spring spell to score a classy on pace victory in this event for the John Thompson stable.
Recent Light Fingers Stakes winners include Nakeeta Jane (2019) and Alizee (2018).
