The Star Kingdom Stakes is a Group 3 open handicap race held annually each March at Rosehill racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $150,000 in prizemoney. The 2018 Star Kingdom Stakes was won by Spright from Dothraki with Bolero King third.
Run as the 'Sebring Stakes' in recent years, the Star Kingdom Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 1 The BMW on the final day of the three-day Golden Slipper Festival during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.

The Star Kingdom Stakes is an open handicap that typically attracts solid, in-form sprinters or horses who cannot run out a strong 1200m and tend to race best at the shorter distance of 1100 metres.
A race such as the Gr2 Challenge Stakes is a good lead up race to this event and the Star Kingdom Stakes is generally taken out by above average types rather than the elite. In recent times Master Of Design (3rd in 2012) went on to win the Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes after running third in this race.
Spright (2018) resumed from a spell to win this event in promising style and recent Star Kingdom Stakes winners include Jungle Edge (2017) and Malaguerra (2016).
