2018 Light Fingers Stakes info

Date: Saturday 17th February 2018
Track: Randwick racecourse, Sydney
Distance: 1200 metres
Race Type: 3yo Fillies - Set Weights
Status: Group 2
Prizemoney: $200,000
2018 Winner: Alizee

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 Gr3 Millie Fox Stakes at Rosehill or the Gr2 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 Gr1 ATC Australian Oaks at Randwick later in the carnival.

Alizee (2018) resumed from a spell to win this event in quality style and recent Light Fingers Stakes winners include Global Glamour (2017) and Perignon (2016).
