The Furious Stakes is a Group 2 set weights race for three-year-old fillies held annually at Randwick racecourse in Sydney during the Sydney spring racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $200,000 in prizemoney. The 2018 Furious Stakes was won by Pure Elation from Fiesta with Pretty In Pink third.
Taking place on the same day as the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes and Group 2 Concorde Stakes, the Furious Stakes was upgraded to Group 2 status for the 2013/2014 racing season and the race distance was reduced from 1400m to 1200m.

|Race Type:||3yo Fillies - Set Weights|
|2018 Winner:||Pure Elation|
The Furious Stakes is raced at level weights for fillies only which favours the better gallopers engaged. This race is generally contested by females who may have went around in the Gr2 Silver Shadow Stakes at Warwick Farm the previous month. Formality (2017) is the last filly to win the Silver Shadow Stakes and Furious Stakes double.
Any fillies competing in this race will most likely head on to the Gr2 Tea Rose Stakes the following month at Rosehill before contesting the major Group 1 fillies race of the spring, the Flight Stakes over 1600m at Randwick on Epsom Hcp day.
The Silver Shadow Stakes has been a great guide to the Furious Stakes in recent times and Speak Fondly (2015), Samantha Miss (2008), Mnemosyne (2005) and Victory Vein (2002) all won the Silver Shadow Stakes before winning this race. Streama (2009) finished third in the Silver Shadow before winning this event at her next start. She then went on to win the Tea Rose Stakes & Flight Stakes later in the carnival.
A number of horses have either won or placed in both the Silver Shadow Stakes and Furious Stakes and vice versa over the years and it pays to cast a keen eye on the Silver Shadow when assessing the form for this race.
Of late, Streama (2011), Samantha Miss (2008), Mnemosyne (2005), Prisoner Of Love (2004), Shamekha (2003), Victory Vein (2002) all won the Tea Rose stakes after winning this race and Samantha Miss (2008) and Angst (1993) are the only two gallopers to win the Princess Series of races which consists of the Silver Shadow Shakes, Furious Stakes, Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes.
Pure Elation (2018) resumed from a spell to win this event in comfortable style for the Peter & Paul Snowden stable at Randwick. The well bred I Am Invincible filly captured the Group 2 Percy Sykes Stakes at Randwick prior to her spell.
Recent Furious Stakes winners include Formality (2017) and Foxplay (2016).
