Winx Stakes – Sydney Racing Tips
The newly named “Winx Stakes” heralds the first Group 1 of the Sydney Spring Racing Tips Carnival despite kicking off in the last month of winter. Formerly known as the “Warwick Stakes” the race was renamed in honour of the Champion mare in 2018 and upgraded to Group 1 status in the process. It will be the focus of our Sydney Racing tips form sheet with our in house analyst Blaazing Ben Perkins. The Winx Stakes is a cracking field to launch our Saturday Racing Tipsmeeting at Randwick racecourse.
The Winx Stakes has been a race that has grown quickly in its stake money over the last few years being worth just $175,000 in 2014 to be $500,000 today. The Winx Stakes is a Group 1 run over 1400m normally run at Warwick Farm however in 2019 will be run at Royal Randwick.
Winx Stakes – won 3 times by Winx
Winx won this race 3 years straight (2016-2018) indicating the class that is needed to win. It is a weight for age event that generally attracts a real balance between the hard fit winter horses and the new fresh horses at the start of a long spring campaign.
Winx Stakes – previous winners
Previous horses to win this race include Lohnro, Sunline, Super Impose, Racing To Win, and Filante really pressing home it’s a serious weight for age race. The topliners out of this race will press on to a race l the Sydney Spring Racing Tips Group 1 George Main Stakes. Those just below may head to a race like the Group 2 Sydney Spring Racing Tips Tramway Stakes.
Winx Stakes – Betting Odds
Three horses in Avilius $3.30, Very Elleegant $4 and Happy Clapper $4.20 dominate the betting in the 10 horse field for the Winx Stakes. We then go out to Unforgotten and Kings Will Dream at $12 for the big race.
Group Races – Winx Stakes Day
Winx Stakes Day also features the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes and 3 other Group 3 races (Up and Coming Stakes, Toy Show Quality, Show County Quality). The Silver Shadow Stakes is for the 3 year fillies run over 1200m at set weights and penalties and provides a nice lead into some of the richer fillies races in the weeks to come. These races are the Sydney Spring Racing Tips Group 2 Furious Stakes (1400M) and the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m).
The “male” division of the 3YO is also run on this day in the Group 3 Up and Coming Stakes. This race is run over 1300m under quality conditions and really signals the return of some of the boom 3 year olds for that season to participate in the Sydney Racing Tips Autumn Carnival.
The honour roll is littered with class (Fastnet Rock, Testa Rossa, Genral Nediym, Exceed and Excel). Essentially this is a good horses race and will be a great guide to the lead in for upcoming 3 year old races like the Sydney Spring Racing Tips Group 1 Golden Rose.
The other two feature races run on the Saturday Racing Tips meeting at Randwick racecourse are the Group 3 Toy Show Quality run over 1300m for Fillies and Mares under Quality Handicap conditions. The handicap conditions of this race can make it a nightmare for punters as the class gallopers will carry the full allocated weight against some up and comers that still have upside.
The other race run at Group 3 level on the same day is the Group 3 Sydney Spring Racing Carnival Tips Show Quality Handicap. This is generally contested by horses that run below the topliners who will be in the Group 1 Winx Stakes at Randwick racecourse. However some of the more progressive types can progress to a race like the Sydney Spring Racing Tips Group 2 Tramway Stakes.
