Track: Randwick racecourse, Sydney

The Percy Sykes Stakes is the major autumn sprint for two-year-old fillies during The Championships at Randwick. It suits those fillies who may have previously competed in female only races like the Gr2 Magic Night Stakes earlier in the carnival. Classy fillies who tackled the Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes might consider heading to this race in search of an easier black type race to add to their resume.

The rise in prizemoney to $500,000 for the Sydney autumn racing carnival is sure to attract many quality fillies in years to come and the Percy Sykes Stakes is sure to grow in stature along the way to become a prestigous autumn event for fiillies.

Pure Elation (2018) scored in a 2YF Maiden race over 1100m at Warwick Farm prior to her victory in this event and recent Percy Sykes Stakes winners include Shoals (2017) and Missrock (2016).
