The Research Stakes is a fillies and mares handicap sprint race that more often than not will attract females who may have run in the listed Sheraco Stakes held earlier in the carnival at Rosehill. The brilliant More Joyous (2012) took out the Sheraco Stakes on her way to success in this event at her next outing.
The race is named after former outstanding mare Research. It tends to assemble more than handy fillies and mares who are best suited to the conditions of the race, especially those gallopers on the rise, and any who may be down in the weights getting under the handicapper's guard.
Quality mare Hot Danish (2009) won this race lumping 61 kilograms and talented gallopers such as Judged (2008), Spinning Hill (2000) and Dantelah (1998) have all won this event.
Shumookh (2018) ran second in the Listed Mona Lisa Stakes over 1350m at Wyong before leading all the way to win this event for the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott stable.
Recent Research Stakes winners include Daysee Doom (2017) and Tycoon Tara (2016).
