The BMW was previously known as the ‘The Tancred Stakes and takes place the week after the Golden Slipper Day and a week before “The Championships”.
The BMW is the premier distance race of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival over 2400m and the assembled field is generally of high quality, with New Zealand horses often making their presence felt. The race is run at weight-for-age and has grown into one of the most anticipated races on the Australian racing calendar each year during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
Many classy gallopers have won The BMW including outstanding mare Makybe Diva (2005), Ethereal (2002), Tie The Knot (1999-2000), Might And Power (1998), Octagonal (1996-97) and New Zealander Our Poetic Prince (1989).
In recent times the Group1 Ranvet Stakes has been a reasonable guide to this race, with Silent Achiever (2014), Manighar (2012), Tuesday Joy (2008), Eremein (2006) and Tie The Knot (2000) all winning the Ranvet Stakes & BMW double in the same year.
