The Todman Stakes is a Group 2 race for two-year-old colts & geldings that takes place each March at Randwick racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres under set weight conditions and worth $300,000 in prizemoney. The 2018 Todman Stakes was won by Aylmerton from Ef Troop with Tchaikovsky third.
Held on the same day as the Group 1 Randwick Guineas, the winner of the Todman Stakes is exempt from ballot for the Golden Slipper Stakes.

The Todman Stakes is a race for two-year-old colts & geldings only and is generally used as a lead up race to the Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes, which is held later in the month over the same distance at Rosehill. Vancourver (2015) and Pierro (2012) are the most recent winners of the Todman Stakes & Golden Slipper Stakes double. Pierro also took out the Gr1 ATC Sires Produce Stakes the following month at Randwick.
Prior to that, Phelan Ready (2nd in 2009) went on to win the 2009 Golden Slipper Stakes after finishing second in this event, while Real Saga (2009) ran fourth in the Slipper. Talented colt Capitalist (2nd in 2016) captured the Golden Slipper following his second placing here.
The Todman Stakes typically attracts 2yo males on their way to the Slipper, and being run at level weights it generally suits the classier types engaged. The winner of this race has the luxury of being exempt from the Golden Slipper ballot, which ensures a run is guaranteed in the $3.5 million race.
Colts & geldings tackling this race may have previously run in the Gr2 Skyline Stakes earlier in the carnival at Warwick Farm, and they also have the option of heading to the Gr2 Pago Pago Stakes the following week at Rosehill, before running in the Slipper.
Aylmerton (2018) scored in a 2YO Maiden race over 1200m at Canterbury before proving too strong for his rivals in this event and recent Todman Stakes winners include Gunnison (2017) and Kiss And Make Up (2016).
