The 2018 Widden Stakes was won by Fiesta from Adamina with River Bird third.

|Date:||Saturday 2nd February 2019|
|Track:||Rosehill racecourse, Sydney|
|Race Type:||2yo Fillies - Set Weights + Penalty|
The Widden Stakes is the first group race of the autumn for two-year-old fillies and the set weights & penalty conditions give a clear advantage to the classier youngsters engaged, especially those 2yo gallopers who have already raced and shown proven ability.
History shows that the more talented gallopers will prove hardest to beat and the Widden Stakes provides the ideal lead up event to upcoming 2yo feature races such as the Gr2 Silver Slipper Stakes at Rosehill or the Gr2 Sweet Embrace Stakes at Randwick. Mossfun (2014) went on to claim the Widden Stakes & Sliver Slipper Stakes double after winning this event.
Some very smart two-year-olds have won this race over the years including Overreach (2013), Horizons (2009), Churchill Downs (2006) and Econsul (2004), while Mossfun (2014) resumed from a spell to win this race before going on to win the Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes in April
Fiesta (2018) scored a first-up victory in this event for the Chris Waller yard and recent Widden Stakes winners include Teaspoon (2017) and Honesty Prevails (2016).
