The Stan Fox Stakes is a good quality set weights event for three-year-olds and has a history of providing winners that go on to be fairly good horses. Outstanding gallopers such as Denman (2009), Lonhro (2001), Kenwood Melody (1998), General Nediym (1997), Octagonal (1995) and Show County (1989) have all been successful in this race.
The Gr1 Golden Rose at Rosehill or Gr3 Spring Stakes at Newcastle are typical lead up races to this event and three-year-olds contesting this race might consider going on to tackle the Gr2 Roman Consul Stakes on the final day of the Randwick carnival.
Better quality gallopers may head to the Melbourne spring racing carnival in Victoria to tackle the big prizemoney races on offer. Both Press Statement (2015) and Shooting To Win (2014) managed to win the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas at Caulfield after taking out this race.
Tarka (2018) took out a 3YO BM66 race over 1600m at Warwick Farm before scoring a narrow victory in this event for Rosehill trainer David Payne.
Recent Stan Fox Stakes winners include Gold Standard (2017) and Impending (2016).
