Star Kingdom Stakes

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 prize money. The 2020 Star Kingdom Stakes was won by Vegadaze from Manicure with Kementari third.

Run as the 'Sebring Stakes' in recent years, the Star Kingdom Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 1 Tancred Stakes on the final day of the three-day Golden Slipper Festival during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.

Date: Saturday 28th March 2020
Track: Rosehill racecourse, Sydney
Distance: 1200 metres
Race Type: Open Handicap
Status: Group 3
Prize Money: $150,000
2020 Winner: Vegadaze

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 Group 2 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 Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes after running third in this race.

Siren's Fury (2019) finished unplaced in the Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes over 1400m at Randwick before scoring a narrow victory for Warwick Farm trainer Jason Coyle.

Recent Star Kingdom Stakes winners include Spright (2018) and Jungle Edge (2017).
