Summoned Stakes

The Summoned Stakes is a Group 3 race for mares held each November at Sandown racecourse in Melbourne. The race is run over a distance of 1500 metres under set weights & penalties and worth $150,000 in prizemoney. The 2017 Summoned Stakes was won by Long Time Ago from Mrs Gardenia with Oregon's Day third.

Taking place on Group 2 Sandown Classic day, one week after the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival ends at Flemington, the Summoned Stakes achieved Group 3 status for the 2013/2014 racing season.

2017 Summoned Stakes info

Date: Saturday 18th November 2017
Track: Sandown racecourse, Melbourne
Distance: 1500 metres
Race Type: Mares - Set Weights + Penalty
Status: Group 3
Prizemoney: $150,000
2017 Winner: Long Time Ago

The Summoned Stakes is the only group race for mares only on Sandown Classic day, which is the final day of group racing during the Melbourne spring racing carnival, and provides mares with their last chance to get some black type success on their resume.

A large field of gallopers will generally assemble for the Summoned Stakes and Horse Racing Info recommend you look for any mares looking to drop back in class from the stronger female only races held earlier in the carnival, as they will find this an attractive proposition.

The Gr3 Ladies Day Vase on Gr1 Thousand Guineas day at Caulfield may be worth keeping an eye on when doing the form as it is raced under similar conditions. Hi Belle (2011) managed to take out the Ladies Day Vase & Summoned Stakes double in recent times.

The weighted conditions of the race gives the more talented mares an advantage, although most of the time the field will simply be made up of more than handy types who are always competitive in these types of events.

It's worth noting that Solicit (2015) and Politeness (2014) came via the Gr1 Myer Classic on Derby Day at Flemington during the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Long Time Ago (2017) resumed from a spell to win this race in narrow fashion and recent Summoned Stakes winners include Silent Sedition (2016) and Solicit (2015).
