Is Previous Form in the Coolmore Stud Stakes a Good Indicator of Future Success?
Like any race, the form and success of a horse entering the Coolmore Stud Stakes is important. Considering the Coolmore Stud Stakes is a three year old sprint, other races that fix this criteria are always good to keep an eye on in the lead up to this race.
Races such as the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes at Caulfield, the Group 2 Danehill Stakes at Flemington, the Listed Poseidon Stakes at Flemington, the Group 3 Blue Sapphire Stakes at Caulfield and the Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes at Moonee Valley, are all good indicators.
Traditionally, horse owners have targeted the Coolmore Stud Stakes with colts, due to its reputation for being a stallion-making race. This reputation is derived from colts dominating the longer history of this race.
However, in recent years fillies have come into their own with six fillies winning the race between 2004 and 2020, including Alinghi in 2004, Gold Edition in 2006, Headway in 2009, Nechita in 2012, Sunlight in 2018 and September Run in 2020.
More often than not, weight is an important factor that must be considered before making a bet on any race. However, the Coolmore Stud Stakes is an exception to this suggestion, as it is a set weight event.
Age is also another distinctive factor in determining a winner of any race in Melbourne’s Spring Carnival, however the Coolmore Stud Stakes is the only Group 1 sprint race on the Victorian racing calendar that is exclusively restricted to three-year-olds.
