2017 Carbine Club Stakes info

Date: Saturday 4th November 2017
Track: Flemington racecourse, Melbourne
Distance: 1600 metres
Race Type: 3yo - Set Weights + Penalty
Status: Group 3
Prizemoney: $200,000
2017 Winner: Levendi

The Carbine Club Stakes is a mile event for three-year-old gallopers that can herald the onset of a topliner such as Saintly (1995), who announced himself to the racing world with a spectacular victory, but more often than not it simply attracts handy types who may go on to races like the Gr2 Sandown Guineas later in the spring. Mahuta (2015) was the last three-year-old to win the Carbine Club Stakes & Sandown Guineas double.

Three-year-olds who are strong at the end of 1400m or have performed well over 1600m are suited to this event. The Carbine Club Stakes usually kicks off proceedings on Derby Day to set the Melbourne Cup four-day carnival into action.

Levendi (2017) finished an unlucky sixth in the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas over 1600m at Cauldield before finisning strongly to win this event and recent Carbine Club Stakes winners include Comin' Through (2016) and Mahuta (2015).
