The Magic Night Stakes is run seven days before the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes and gives two-year-old fillies their last chance to qualify for the Slipper, as the winner of this race is exempt from any Slipper ballot. Kiamichi (2019) is the last filly to win the Magic Night Stakes & Golden Slipper Stakes double.
Two-year-old fillies contesting this race may come via the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes at Randwick two weeks earlier, while those planning to run in the Golden Slipper may use this event as their final lead up race. The Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes for colts & geldings is the male equivalent of this race and is held on the same day. Both races take place on Group 1 Rosehill Guineas Day at Rosehill.
Any quality fillies might consider a rise in distance to a race like the Group 1 ATC Sires Produce Stakes against the males at Randwick. Peggy Jean (2nd in 2014) won the Sires at her next start after finishing runner-up in the Magic Night Stakes.
Kiamichi (2019) ran fourth in the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes over 1200m at Randwick before cruising to a comfortable all the way victory in this event for the James Cummings stable.
Recent Magic Night Stakes winners include Sunlight (2018) and Tulip (2017).
