The Tea Rose Stakes is a Group 2 set weights event for three-year-old fillies that takes place each September at Randwick racecourse during the Sydney spring racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1400 metres and worth $200,000 in prizemoney. The 2017 Tea Rose Stakes was won by Alizee from Champagne Cuddles with Cellargirl third.
This event takes place on the same day as the Group 1 George Main Stakes and was reduced in distance from 1500m to 1400m for the 2013/2014 racing season.

The Tea Rose Stakes is a 3yo fillies event over 1400 metres that is the perfect lead up race to the premier race of the spring for three-year-old fillies, the Gr1 Flight Stakes at Randwick on the final day of the carnival.
This race will attract fillies that previously contested the Gr2 Furious Stakes earlier in the carnival at Randwick and provides the ideal tune for the 1600m of the Flight Stakes on Gr1 Epsom Handicap day. The Furious Stakes has provided more than 75% winners of this race over the past few years while fillies who contest this event have provided more than 80% of recent Flight Stakes winners.
In recent times Foxplay (2016), Streama (2011), More Strawberries (2010), Samantha Miss (2008), Mnemosyne (2005), Prisoner Of Love (2004), Shamekha (2003) and Victory Vein (2002) have all won the Furious Stakes before going on to win this race.
Nearly every year the placegetters from this race will figure in the finish of the Flight Stakes on the final day of the spring racing carnival at Randwick and history shows the Tea Rose Stakes is the best form guide to premier Group 1 fillies race of the spring in Sydney.
Of late, Alisee (2017), First Seal (2014), Guelph (2013), Streama (2011), More Joyous (2009), Samantha Miss (2008), Cheeky Choice (2006), Ha Ha (2001) and Unworldy (2000) have all won the Tea Rose & Flight Stakes double, while Fashions Afield (2nd in 2005) went on to win the Flight Stakes.
Streama (2011), Samantha Miss (2008), Unworldly (2000), Danglissa (1999), Sunline (1998) all managed to win the Furious Stakes/Tea Rose Stakes/Flight Stakes treble.
Samantha Miss (2008) and Angst (1993) are the only two fillies to win the Princess Series of races, the Silver Shadow Stakes, Furious Stakes, Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes.
Alizee (2017) ran fourth in the Furious Stakes over 1200m at Randwick before storming home to win this event in exciting fashion and recent Tea Rose Stakes winners include Foxplay (2016) and Pearls (2015).
