|2017 Winner:||In Her Time|
The Millie Fox Stakes is a nice little race for fillies and mares only that generally attracts the better class females going around. The Gr2 Breeders Classic held earlier in the carnival at the same track is generally a good guide to this race as it is raced under the same weighted conditions, but for mares only. In Her Time (2017) and Catkins (2015) are the most recent winners of the Breeders Classic & Millie Fox Stakes double, while Red Tracer (2013) ran second in the Breeders Classic before winning this race at her next start.
Fillies & mares contesting this event will most likely have their eye on the premier race for females during the autumn, the Gr1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes in April. Neroli (2009) was the most recent galloper to take out the Millie Fox Stakes & Queen Of The Turf Stakes double in the same year, while Red Tracer (2013) managed to finish second in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes after victory in the Millie Fox Stakes.
The Gr1 Coolmore Stud Classic held the following month at Rosehill may also be on the radar for those better females up to the challenge, while a race like the Gr3 Wenona Girl Handicap at Randwick may suit some of the lesser lights. A Time For Julia (2nd in 2014) took out the Wenona Girl Handicap at her next start after finishing second in the Millie Fox Stakes.
Smart mare Red Tracer won this race in three consective years in 2012, 2013 and 2014, while Montana Flyer won it in successive years in 2010 and 2011.
In Her Time (2017) took out the Gr2 Breeders Classic over 1200m at Randwick before scoring the easiest of victories in this event and recent Millie Fox Stakes winners include Catkins (2015) and Red Tracer (2012-14).
