The How Now Stakes is a Group 3 race for mares raced under set weights and penalty conditions each year in September at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $150,000 in prize money. The 2020 How Now Stakes was won by Felicia from Broadwayandfourth with Fiesta third.
This race was ran as the 'Odds Boost Stakes' last season and is a more than handy mares race during the early stages of the Melbourne spring racing carnival.

The How Now Stakes is a mares only race over the sprint distance of 1200 metres and most of the time attracts above average females where the weighted conditions of the race means the better mares engaged have a decided advantage over their rivals.
Females contesting the How Now Stakes may have previously tackled similar mares races like the Gr3 Cockram Stakes or Gr3 Lets Elope Stakes and may consider tackling better quality mares races like the Gr2 Rose Of Kingston Stakes at Flemington on Turnbull Stakes day.
Classy mare Mosheen (5th in 2012) went on to win the Rose of Kingston Stakes at her next start after running fifth in this race and the How Now Stakes has been won by talented mares such as Sister Madly (2011), Velocitea (2009) and Lovely Jubly (2003) over the years.
Manicure (2019) resumed from a spell to win this event in classy style for trainer James Cummings.
Recent How Now Stakes winners include Winter Bride (2018) and Savanna Amour (2017).
