The Vamos Stakes is a fillies & mares only race that was first run in 2007, and the recent spate of good quality fields has resulted in the race being upgraded in line with its above benchmark ratings over the past few years.

Classy Tasmanian mare Lady Lynette is a three-time winner of this race, scoring her first victory in 2009, before scoring back-to-back wins in 2011 & 2012.

The best lead-up race for the Vamos Stakes is the Gr3 Bow Mistress trophy at Hobart earlier in the month and Lady Lynette was the last mare to win both races in 2011.
