Track: Flemington racecourse, Melbourne

2018 Winner: Khulaasa

The Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes is a race for two-year-old fillies that is run down the Flemington 'Straight Six' 1200m course which is a straight track with no turns involved and suits some horses more than others. Some two-year-olds can find the long straight a bit challenging if it is their first attempt at the course and any 2yo with experience down the straight has a decided advantage.

Fillies may tackle this race after competing in the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield in February and the winner is typically just a handy filly who will most likely go on to be more than competitive in similar type races against her own age.

Khulaasa (2018) ran second in the Listed Talindert Stakes over 1100m at Flemington before scoring a classy victory in this event and recent Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes winners include Shoals (2017) and Thyme For Roses (2016).
