The Silver Shadow Stakes is a Group 2 event for 3yo Fillies held at Randwick racecourse in Sydney each August. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $200,000 in prize money. The 2020 Silver Shadow Stakes was won by Dame Giselle from Thermosphere with Miss Canada third.
Taking place on Group 2 Winx Stakes day, alongside the male version of this race, the Gr3 Up And Coming Stakes, the Silver Shadow Stakes was upgraded to Group 2 status in 2013 and held at Randwick for the 2014/2015 racing season.

The Silver Shadow Stakes is raced over 1200 metres at set weights and is the perfect lead up race for fillies who are looking ahead to the bigger three-year-old filly races in coming weeks, such as the Gr2 Furious Stakes over 1400m and Gr2 Tea Rose Stakes over 1500m.
In recent years the race has generally been won by a more than handy filly rather than an out and out top liner, although the brilliant sprinter Gold Edition (2006) managed to win this before going on to bigger and better things. Samantha Miss (2008) was a high quality filly who won multiple spring features as a three-year-old before injury curtailed her career.
The race is a good guide to the upcoming Furious Stakes at Randwick and in recent times Speak Fondly (2015), Samantha Miss (2008), Mnemosyne (2005) and Victory Vein (2002) all won the Silver Shadow Stakes before winning the Furious Stakes next time out.
A number of more than handy fillies have either won or placed in both the Silver Shadow Stakes & Furious stakes, or vice versa, and most recently Dear Demi (3rd in 2012), Streama (3rd in 2011) and Melito (2nd in 2009) went on to win the Furious Stakes after placing in this event, while Pane In The Glass (2011) and Florentina (2nd in 2011) finished second and third in the Furious Stakes.
Libertini (2019) resumed from an autumn spell to score an ultra impressive citory in this evnt for the Anthony Cummings stable.
Recent Silver Shadow Stakes winners include Fiesta (2018) and Formality (2017).
