About the Vinery Stud Stakes

The Vinery Stud Stakes is one of the main Group One races that takes place during the Autumn Racing Carnival. We always see some of the best 3YO fillies step out for their chance at Group 1 glory. The Vinery Stud Stakes is known as the main lead-up race for the Australian Oaks, which is run two weeks later and is worth a cool $1 million.

Along with the Vinery Stud Stakes, the Tancred Stakes is also raced on the same day and racecourse. The Australian Cup is also raced on the same day, but it takes place at Flemington Racecourse. So, you’ve got lots of quality races on this day to tuck into.

Over the years, we’ve seen some of the best win the Vinery Stud Stakes, including the likes of; Verry Elleegant (2019), Mosheen (2012), Miss Finland (2007) and Research (1989). Later on this page, we will go into further detail about all the top horses to ever win the Vinery Stud Stakes.

The winner of the Vinery Stud Stakes is exempt from the ballot for the Australian Oaks, so there’s extra incentive to win the race. On top of this, the $750,000 on offer is another major incentive, that’s for sure!

Like with the Tancred Stakes in 2022, the Vinery Stud Stakes was temporarily moved to Newcastle Racecourse and run two days after the initial schedule as a result of poor weather. Both Rosehill and Newcastle Racecourse are among some of the top tracks in the country.

The team at OnlyRacing.com.au have put together this comprehensive look into the world of the Vinery Stud Stakes.

Tips, tips and more tips! While you wait, check out our 2024 Vinery Stud Stakes tips below:

Vinery Stud Stakes Best Bet - Orchestral

The clear favourite had to go on top for me. Orchestral is well-found in the market, currently listed at $1.60. Yes, she is very short, but she is very good and will likely put all these other runners to the sword easily. She is the most promising New Zealand runner that I’ve seen in quite some time.

The filly by Savabeel has been going from strength to strength since the beginning of the year and she comes into the Vinery Stud Stakes in pretty much perfect form. Her turn of foot is amazing and she gets the services of JMac. With all that on her side, I doubt any other runner will be catching her down the straight! Too short for me, but could play her in some multiples.

Vinery Stud Stakes Next Best - Zardozi

In any other race, Zardozi would be the favourite and I would be tipping her as my best bet, but she just comes up against one better - Orchestral. Her win in the Phar Lap Stakes was impressive, to say the least, and she is currently the clear second-favourite in the market, listed at $4.80 currently.

In the Phar Lap Stakes, she was completely dominant and put in a massive gap between herself and her rivals. Think she’ll love the 2,000m and she should give the favourite a bit of a run for her money, especially if she isn’t on her A-game come Saturday. For value an Exacta of Orchestral in first and Zardozi in second.

Vinery Stud Stakes Best Roughie - Autumn Angel

With the two front runners, I’ve tried to find some value but I’m going with Autumn Angel, who is currently listed at $7.00 in the market. The daughter of The Autumn Sun could be a great danger for the top two runners if she gets a little bit of luck on her side. 

Not the best value I’ve ever been able to find for the 2024 Vinery Stud Stakes, but she is the best chance of running top three I feel out of the rest of the field. Only had seven career stakes, but her Victorian form has been excellent and she put together a great win at Rosehill just last weekend. She just may upset the top runners, but we’ll have to wait and see!

In the 2024 Vinery Stud Stakes, we saw a total of 10 runners line up. In the end, there was just one scratching, Autumn Angel, so there were nine runners that jumped and fought it out for a Group 1 win.

Scratchings do happen from time to time and there are several reasons why. Even in races like the Vinery Stud Stakes where there is a lot of prize money at stake, scratchings still occur. While it is really annoying to find out the horse you bet on is scratched from the race, you will get your stake back, so you live to fight another day!

When it comes to the final field, another key piece of information to look into is the barrier draw. The barrier a runner starts from can have a major impact on race tactics and the end result. Certain barriers are more successful than others as well, so it’s a good idea to check out barrier stats.

Vinery Stud Stakes Form Guide

Ah, the Vinery Stud Stakes form guide! If you love going through pages upon pages of data, then you’ll love doing the form for the Vinery Stud Stakes. If you could think of nothing worse, then you’ve come to the right place!

The team at OnlyRacing love a bit of data and we’ve gone through it all for the Vinery Stud Stakes, pulling out the key pieces of information that will help point you in the right direction of a winner. That’s right, we’ve saved you some time (and your sanity)! So, why don’t we check out all the key form indicators below?

While it is uncommon for a runner to complete the Vinery Stud Stakes and Coolmore Classic/ Kembla Grange Classic double, those are the two ideal lead-up races you should investigate. Look for runners that may not have necessarily won the lead-up race, but showed great improvement and finishing speed. Even looking for runners that just had plain bad luck.

The 2,000m distance can be a challenge for fillies, so make sure you look for a runner who has proven experience around this distance. When it comes to the odds of the winner, it’s been a bit of a mixed bag with both favourites and longshots getting up in recent times. In the last 11 years, seven favourites have won.

The way Rosehill Racecourse is set up at the 2,000m mark, there is a long run into the first turn, which means those who are in a wider barrier have more time to overcome the issue. We’ve seen recently several winners from a wider barrier.

Pre-existing form is key for the Vinery Stud Stakes with seven of the last 14 winners also winning their lead-up race. This includes the likes of Orchestral (2024), Prowess (2023), Hungry Heart (2021), Verry Elleegant (2019), Montoya’s Secret (2017) and Single Gaze (2016).

Vinery Stud Stakes Horses

Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty amazing Vinery Stud Stakes horses win the Group 1. Horses that have accomplished many things throughout their careers. Many of the horses we’ve chosen to feature here have been inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame and have won many other Group 1 races.

While we only have a limited amount of space, we’ve had to make some tough decisions on who gets a spot on our list. If you want to see who has made the cut, just continue reading below. We’ve listed a handful of Vinery Stud Stakes horses to feature:

Research - 1989

Research was certainly an epic racehorse, in fact, she was the only filly to take out the Australian Derby and the Australian Oaks. In 1989, she was named the Australian Champion Racehorse of the Year thanks to the many wins she had that year. Throughout her career, she earned almost $2 million and had a record of 31:9-5-2.

Miss Finland - 2007

Miss Finland had a very successful career which included several Group 1 wins. In the end, she finished her career with almost $5 million in prize money thanks to a record of 26:11-5-1. Most notably, Miss Finland won the 2006 Golden Slipper, but other races she won included; the Memsie Stakes, the Thousand Guineas and the Australian Guineas.

Verry Elleegant - 2019

Verry Elleegant won several races throughout her career including the biggest race of them all, the Melbourne Cup. She had an impressive career record of 36: 16–7–3, which ensured she gained almost $15 million in prize money. Throughout the 2020/ 2021 season, she was named the Australian Racehorse of the Year.

Fangirl - 2022

At the time of writing, Fangirl is still racing and so far she has amassed almost $8 million in prize money. She has a career record of 25: 8-5-3, which includes a win in the 2022 Vinery Stud Stakes. So far, she has won a total of three Group 1s, the other two being the King Charles III Stakes and the Winx Stakes.

Vinery Stud Stakes Odds

When you bet on the Vinery Stud Stakes, you’ll see odds next to all the different markets. The shorter the odds, the more chance the bookie thinks that the bet will be successful. For example, if a runner is listed at $1.80 to win the race, that would almost certainly be the favourite in the race and bookies think they are most likely to win.

You’ll find all the best horse racing betting apps will have heaps of markets available for the Vinery Stud Stakes. So, when it comes to Vinery Stud Stakes odds, it can pay to shop around. You could even try out one of the many different horse racing markets

For the Vinery Stud Stakes specifically, the 2025 odds are not yet available with PlayUp. However, we don’t think it will be too long until they release their Win/ Place market for the race. This means if you want, you should be able to get your early bets on the race.

If you want to bet early, we think this is a good idea because if the market is listed as “Before Noms” you’ll get your stake back if you bet on a runner that doesn’t make the final field. The odds are always changing though, so be sure to keep your eye on the fluctuations.

While we wait for the 2025 Vinery Stud Stakes odds to become available, why don’t you check out the odds that were on offer for the race in 2024, just one day before the event:

Vinery Stud Stakes History

Let’s take a deeper look at the history of this great race! It doesn’t actually have as long of a history as some of the other races on the Australian racing calendar, but the first running of the Vinery Stud Stakes took place in 1979. The winner of the inaugural Vinery Stud Stakes was Impede.

These days the race is named after the New South Wales-based horse breeding operation, Vinery Stud. Although this wasn’t always the case, the race has been run under many names throughout its history:

  • 1979-1991 - Storm Queen Stakes
  • 1992-2001 -  Ansett Australia Stakes
  • 2002-2008 - Arrowfield Stud Stakes
  • 2009-Present - Vinery Stud Stakes

In terms of the race distance, it has almost always been at 2,000m, except for the first-ever Vinery Stud Stakes, which was run at a distance of 1,900m. It took until 1993 for the Vinery Stud Stakes to hold Group 1 status. In the beginning, the Vinery Stud Stakes was a Principal race and then it was upgraded to Group 2 status between 1980 and 1992.

The Vinery Stud Stakes takes place during the middle of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, which just happens to be one of the biggest horse racing carnivals of the year! There are so many other races in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and on the entire racing calendar. If you’d like to know more about any of the other races, check out our Group One races list.
