2018 Winter Stakes info

Date: Saturday 23rd June 2018
Track: Gold Coast racecourse, Gold Coast
Distance: 1400 metres
Race Type: Fillies & Mares - Weight for age
Status: Group 1
Prizemoney: $500,000
2017 Winner: Tycoon Tara

The Tatts Tiara is a good quality race for fillies & mares only and the weight-for-age race conditions provide a distinct advantage to the better performed females contesting the event. More often than not the best filly or mare will greet the judge in first place.

Some classy mares have won the Tatts Tiara over the years including the likes of Red Tracer (2013), Melito (2010), Dane Ripper (1997), Tripping (1996) and Mamzelle Pedrille (1995).

Any female gallopers who contested the Gr3 Lady Of The Turf Stakes at Doomben earlier in the carnival or the Gr2 Dane Ripper Quality at Eagle Farm are most likely to go on and tackle the Winter Stakes, as they are both run under similar conditions for fillies & mares only. In recent times Red Tracer (2013) and Cosmic Endeavour (2014) borh claimed the Dane Ripper Quality & Winter Stakes double.

Tycoon Tara (2017) ran seventh in the Gr2 Dane Ripper Quality over 1350m at Doomben before scoring an upset victory in this event and recent Winter Stakes winners include Miss Cover Girl (2016) and Srikandi (2015).
