The Manfred Stakes is the first group race of the Melbourne autumn for three-year-old gallopers and provides a good hit out at group level for the better class races ahead during the upcoming autumn carnival. Some classy gallopers have won this race over the past few years including Mosheen (2012), Denman (2010), Nicconi (2009) and Haradasun (2007).
Capable three-year-olds engaged in this race might head on to the Gr2 Autumn Stakes at Caulfield on Gr1 CF Orr Stakes day, while fillies might look to the female only Gr3 Boronia Stakes on the same day, as they are raced under similar conditions. Denman (2010) was the last galloper to take out the Manfred Stakes & Autumn Stakes double. San Nicasio (4th in 2015) won the Autumn Stakes at his next start after running fourth in the Autumn Stakes.
Tin Hat (2019) took out a BM70 race over 1200m at Sandown before winning this event in classy style for the James Cummings stable.
Recent Manfred Stakes winners include Cliff's Edge (2018) and Legless Veuve (2017).
