The Flight Stakes is the only Group 1 race for 3yo fillies held during the Sydney spring carnival and it attracts some of the best young females looking for elite race glory. The Gr2 Furious Stakes or Gr2 Tea Rose Stakes are traditional guides to this race, especially the Tea Rose, where winners or placegetters have provided more than 75% of Flight Stakes winners over recent years.

First Seal (2014), Guelph (2013), More Joyous (2009), Samantha Miss (2008), Cheeky Choice (2006), Ha Ha (2001) and Unworldy (2000) all won the Tea Rose & Flight Stakes double, while Fashions Afield (2005) and Unearthly (2003) both ran placings in the Tea Rose Stakes before winning this race.

A number of fillies have won ran placings in both the Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes and the Tea Rose form holds up extremely well for this race.

Streama (2011), Samantha Miss (2008), Unworldly (2000), Danglissa (1999), Sunline (1998) all managed to win the Furious Stakes - Tea Rose Stakes - Flight Stakes treble while Samantha Miss (2008) and Angst (1993) are the only two gallopers to win the Priincess Series of races, Silver Shadow, Furious Stakes, Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes.

Some top fillies have been successful in this event and none better than the mighty Sunline (1998), while other good winners have been More Joyous (2009), Samantha Miss (2008), Assertive Lass (1996), Angst (1993), Triscay (1990), Research (1988) and Bounding Away (1986).

Global Glamour (2016) finished sixth in the Tea Rose Stakes over 1400m at Randwick before proving too powerful for her rivals here and recent Flight Stakes winners include Speak Fondly (2015) First Seal (2014).
