The Tristarc Stakes is a mares only race over the middle sprint distance of 1400m and generally attracts above average females on their way to the Gr1 Myer Classic on AAMI Victoria Derby day or the Gr2 Matriarch Stakes on Emirates Stakes day, or any of the better quality mares races still to come.
The set weights conditions of the race means that the better mares in the race have a distinct advantage over their rivals and those females with higher average prizemoney and better race records are typically the ones to beat.
Generally taken out by a more than handy mare, in recent times outstanding mares More Joyous (2011) and Typhoon Tracy (2009) have both won this race.
Shumookh (2018) ran fourth in the Gr3 Angst Stakes over 1600m at Randwick in Sydney before making the journey to Melbourne to score a stylish victory in this event for the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott stable.
Recent Tristarc Stakes winners include Global Glamour (2017) and First Seal (2016).
Mares from this race will most likely continue on to other set weight mares events or one of the major 1600m races such as the Myer Classic over the carnival period. Recent Tristarc Stakes placegetters have gone on to enjoy success during the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington.
More recently, Shillelagh (2017) took on and beat the males in the Gr1 Cantala States at Flemington on Derby Day after finishing third here.
Red Tracer (2013) took out the Myer Classic at Flemington after winning the Tristarc Stakes and Fire Up Fifi (4th in 2013) ran third in the same race before travelling to Perth to run third in the Gr1 Railway Stakes at Ascot.
Prior to that Typhoon Tracy (2009) went on to win the the Myer Classic on Derby day, while Mimi Lebrock (2008) ran run third in the Myer Classic later that spring with Absolutelyfabulous (3rd in 2008) finishing runner-up in the same race.
Tan Tat De Lago (2nd in 2008) ran second in the Matriarch Stakes on Emirates Stakes day.
