So, if it’s not time for the All Aged Stakes just yet, you can still get your fill or horse racing tips.

We want to wait until more information about each runner comes to light before providing our tips. Our experts will provide three tips for the All Aged Stakes; best bet, next best and best roughie.

Waiting, waiting! But while you wait, why don’t you check out our tips for the All Aged Stakes in 2024? Our expert went through each runner in the field, analysed their chances and nailed down their top three picks for the race. Check out the tips below:

All Aged Stakes Best Bet - Espiona

It’s a fairly open market for the All Aged Stakes in 2024, but I’ve landed on Espiona for my best bet. Espiona is the current narrow favourite, listed at $4.00 at the time of writing. The Chris Waller-trained mare has had a high-quality prep and I think now is her time to win her second Group 1. She was unlucky in the TJ Smith Stakes, encountering heaps of traffic.

If she can get a clean run this time, she’ll be difficult to stop. Even if she doesn’t get a clean run, I think she may be too good for the rest of the field! She loves Randwick and is primed for further improvement. She is in a wider barrier, which could just work to her liking.

All Aged Stakes Next Best -  Southport Tycoon

Southport Tycoon comes into the All Aged Stakes in a lot of form, after winning the Australian Guineas last time out. The form coming out of that race has stood up well, so that’s an even bigger tick in my books. Scratched from the Doncaster Mile, I think he gets everything he is looking for here, a kinder draw and not as heavy of a track.

He has had a couple of trials under his belt between runs and he is looking in good form. I think he has a genuine chance of winning the race on Saturday and you certainly can’t knock a runner in good form. Currently listed at odds of $6.00, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him shorten as we get closer to race day.

All Aged Stakes Best Roughie - Magic Time

Going with Magic Time as my best roughie, who is currently listed at odds of $9.00. She has put together a decent prep so far, running well in the Newmarket Handicap against the likes of Cylinder and Imperatriz, then another good (yet under the radar) performance in the TJ Smith Stakes.

I think the 1,400m is a great distance for her as she won the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes over the same distance in Spring last year. She has also run Espiona to a neck previously, so let’s see if she can do that again! I’ll be putting a little something on Magic Time to place in the All Aged Stakes.

In the beginning, there could be a lot of trial and error, so we think it is a good idea to try out a couple of different betting markets.

All Aged Stakes Field

We all want to see which runners will line up in the All Aged Stakes in 2025, but at this stage, we don’t know who will be gracing us with their presence. However, as we’ve come to expect over the years, we are pretty sure the field will be filled with quality runner after quality runner.

Along with the field, if the odds are available, we will list them below in our “Odds” section. It can be worthwhile checking out the odds because you’ll see which runners are more favoured in the market and therefore more likely to make an appearance in the All Aged Stakes.

In 2024, we saw a field of 14 runners line up for the All Aged Stakes. It's a big, quality field and we can’t wait for the race on Saturday! Before the race jump, we ended up seeing just one scratching, Golden Mile. As there were no emergencies listed for the All Aged Stakes, the final field race was cut to 13 runners.

You’ll find that scratchings happen a lot of the time in horse racing. It is annoying when the horse you bet on ends up getting scratched, but the good news is that you’ll get your stake back. A runner can get scratched for any number of reasons and it can happen at any time, so don’t forget to keep an eye on things.

Speaking of keeping an eye on things, something else you should look into when the final field is announced is the barrier draw. Some barriers have seen more success in the past than others. As well as this, certain runners will prefer a higher or lower barrier, depending on their racing style.

All Aged Stakes Form Guide

The All Aged Stakes has a long and rich history. Do you know what that means? Many, many pages worth of All Aged Stakes form guide data to go through! If that doesn’t excite you like it excites us here at OnlyRacing, that’s pretty understandable.

We love going through the All Aged Stakes form guide to find patterns that will hopefully point you in the direction of a winner. Over the years, we’ve found some key form indicators that have stuck out like a sore thumb and you can find all the important facts below!

One of the first things we do is look into the ideal lead-up races. We’ve found that the most common lead-up races are the Doncaster Mile, the TJ Smith Stakes and the Futurity Stakes.

In more recent years, it has been the TJ Smith Stakes that has been the most successful, with seven of the last nine winners coming from this race.

Like with many Group 1 races, it is pretty much essential that you only focus on runners that are coming into the All Aged Stakes in some form. Since 2004, we have only seen nine All Aged Stakes winners finish worse than second in the lead-up run.

When it comes to the most common age of winners, 3YOs have a healthy record, with 11 3YOs winning the All Aged Stakes since 2012. Fillies and mares also have a good record in the All Aged Stakes, winning on 10 occasions since 2000.

Since 2009, we’ve only seen five winners with a starting price of $5.00 or less. In the same timeframe, we’ve seen a total of four winners jump with a double-digit starting price. So, it’s a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to the results based on the odds!

All Aged Stakes Horses

There are many quality All Aged Stakes horses that have competed and won the race over the years. This section is dedicated to the best of the best horses that have not only won the All Aged Stakes but also left a lasting impression on the horse racing industry.

With a race that has been around for as long as the All Aged Stakes has, we found it difficult to cut down the horses we featured in this section to just a handful. We had to make some really tough decisions, but hopefully, you agree with the choices we have made! Check out some of the best All Aged Stakes horses to ever win the race below:

Wakeful - 1902

Wakeful was completely dominant in the early 1900s. She won countless races that are now classified as Group 1s including the Oakleigh Plate, the Doncaster Mile, the Sydney Cup and the Turnbull Stakes, just to name a few. She finished her career with a record of 44:25-12-4, which meant she was only unplaced in three races throughout her entire career!

Ajax - 1938-1940

Ajax won the All Aged Stakes three years in a row and each year he successfully beat his own record! He achieved many key race wins throughout his career and was honoured with a Group 2 race named after him, the Ajax Stakes as well as being inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in 2004.

Tulloch - 1958

The list of Tulloch’s major wins goes on and on, so it’s no surprise he has a Group 2 race named in his honour, the Tulloch Stakes. Some of the biggest races he won throughout his career included the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (three times), the Cox Plate, the Caulfield Cup and the Victoria Derby.

Wenona Girl - 1964

Wenona Girl had a long and successful career which included winning the 1964 All Aged Stakes. She had a career record of 68:27-19-7 and was victorious in races like the Sires Produce Stakes, the Rosehill Guineas, the Flight Stakes along with the King Charles III Stakes.

Sunline - 2000 & 2002

In her time, she was the world’s highest-earning mare, so Sunline certainly deserves a spot on this list! Bred and raced in New Zealand, Sunline crossed the ditch to give winning Australian Group 1 races a crack. She was the Australian Horse of the Year from 2000 to 2002 and won races like the Cox Plate, the Doncaster Mile and the Manikato Stakes.

Atlantic Jewel - 2012

The lightly raced Atlantic Jewel made a big splash in the races she did compete in! Her career record stands at 11:10-1-0, which means she never finished lower than second in any race she competed in. Some of her biggest wins included the Thousand Guineas, the Memsie Stakes as well as the Caulfield Stakes.

All Aged Stakes Odds

If you plan on betting on the All Aged Stakes, the odds are a vital piece of information you’ll need. You may think you’ve found a winner, but if the odds are something like $1.45, is there any real value there? The shorter the odds, the more likely the bookie thinks that outcome will eventuate. But remember, the favourite doesn’t win every single time!

Well before the All Aged Stakes is due to be run, all of the best horse racing betting apps will open markets for the race. However, at this stage, we are still a little too far away from the race, so PlayUp hasn’t released their odds just yet. We will keep an eye on things though and bring you the odds as soon as we can.

PlayUp hasn’t released their horse racing markets for the All Aged Stakes just yet, but we will showcase the odds soon! It is also a good idea to check what stage the market is in, if the market is listed as “Before Noms” it means that if the runner you bet on doesn’t make the final field, you’ll still get your stake back.

As the market hasn’t been released it is important to note that when the market is live, the odds for all runners will be changing, most likely multiple times a day. They will even likely be changing dramatically on the day of the race as well. Market moves are very common in horse racing and they can be fairly unpredictable.

While we don’t have the odds for the race in 2025, we’ve left up all the odds from the race in 2024, so you can see which runners were more favoured in the market below:

Runner:Odds:
Espiona$4.00
Sunshine In Paris$4.80

All Aged Stakes History

The first-ever All Aged Stakes took place in 1865 and was won by Falcon. Since then we have seen many quality editions of the race and it has certainly cemented itself as one of the best races during the Autumn Racing Carnival, which happens to be one of the biggest horse racing carnivals of the year.

The All Aged Stakes is now run over a distance of 1,400m, but that wasn’t always the case. Before 2004, the race was won at a distance of 1,600m before it was permanently moved to a distance of 1,400m. The most successful trainer in the All Aged Stakes history is none other than Gai Waterhouse, who has trained five winners.

Throughout the long history of the All Aged Stakes, it is Trapeze Artist (2018) who holds the race record of 1:20.33. The race in 2013 brought some drama with it when All Too Hard’s victory was overshadowed by a falling out between trainer Gai Waterhouse and owner John Singleton after More Joyous’ disappointing race.

A few years earlier, in 2011, we finally saw Hay List get his time at the top after regular competitor, Black Caviar, was absent from the race. How many times did Hay List go down to Black Caviar? Too many to count probably!

The Australian racing calendar is filled to the brim with quality Group 1 and key feature races. If you want to learn about more than just the All Aged Stakes, be sure to visit our Group One races list for more information.
