Matriarch Stakes

The Matriarch Stakes is a Group 2 race for mares held at Flemington racecourse annually during the Melbourne spring racing carnival in November. The race is run over a distance of 2000 metres and worth $300,000 in prizemoney. The 2018 Matriarch Stakes was won by Kenedna from Miss Siska with Luvaluva third.

Run as the 'Momentum Energy Stakes' in recent years, the Matriarch Stakes is held on Emirates Stakes day on the final day of the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival. Feature races include the Group 1 Emirates Stakes & Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic.

Matriarch Stakes info

Date: Saturday 10th November 2018
Track: Flemington racecourse, Melbourne
Distance: 2000 metres
Race Type: Mares - Set Weights + Penalty
Status: Group 2
Prizemoney: $300,000
2018 Winner: Kenedna

The Matriarch Stakes is a race for females only and attracts handy mares rather than the elite. The set weight & penalty conditions of the race favours the classier mares engaged and those gallopers with higher prizemoney and better strike rates are typically the ones to beat.

Typically speaking the race is not a great guide to anything in particular moving forward. Winners and placegetters may decide to go on to either the Gr2 Sandown Classic or Gr3 Eclipse Stakes at Sandown the following week, if still racing after the Flemington carnival. Interestingly enough, Lucia Valentina (2015) came via the Gr1 Caulfield Cup to win this race.

Kenedna (2018) finished unplaced in the Gr1 Myer Classic over 1600m at Flemington before pulling out all stops to win this event for leading trainer Darren Weir.

Recent Matriarch Stakes winners include Savapinski (2017) and Jessy Belle (2016).
