The VRC Sires Produce Stakes is a classic event for two-year-olds that gives young horses their first test at greater than 1200m in a group race during the autumn. Youngsters who have previously contested the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield a couple of weeks earlier are best suited to tackle this event.
The race suits horses who run on strongly in the Blue Diamond Stakes which indicates the extra distance of this race may be of benefit. The VRC Sires Produce Stakes is typically won by an above average galloper and interestingly enough, Shamus Award (2nd in 2013) went on to win the Gr1 WS Cox Plate during the Melbourne spring racing carnival as a maiden three-year-old.
The Sydney autumn racing carnival can often be on the agenda for 2yo gallopers competing in this event and Von Costa De Hero (2008) managed to run second in the Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes at Rosehill in April after winning this race.
Classy gallopers Rostova (2009) & All Too Hard (2012) finished third & second respectively in the Gr1 ATC Sires Produce Stakes at Randwick after taking out this race, while Yosei (3rd in 2010) managed to win the ATC Sires Produce Stakes after finishing third in this event. Willow Creek (2nd in 2010) won the Gr2 Magic Night Stakes at Rosehill after running second here.
Not A Single Cent (2018) ran fifth in a 2YO Handicap race over 1200m at Caulfield before winning this event and recent VRC Sires Produce Stakes winners include Sircconi (2017) and Seaburge (2016).
