The Winners Stakes is a 1300m race held at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney. It has set weights plus penalties and a total prize pool of $1 million. It is named after whichever horse won The Everest the year prior, so in 2020 it will be called the Yes Yes Yes Stakes, and will be run on Saturday, October 31.
The 2019 edition of the Winners Stakes, which was named the Redzel Stakes, was won by the Gregory Hickman-trained Pierata. Trekking ran second for James Cummings, with Le Romain rounding out the placings. Pierata entered the race after finishing fifth in The Everest and after claiming victory didn’t race again in 2019.

The Winners Stakes is yet another effort from Racing NSW to strengthen their Spring Racing Carnival. It is raced on the same day as the Golden Eagle and Winners Stakes and takes place two weeks after The Everest. In 2019, a number of horses who either ran in The Everest, but failed to win, or missed out on a slot, then went on to compete in the Winners Stakes. That trend is expected to continue over the coming years.

Pierata clocked 1:16.59 to win the 2019 Winners Stakes, and although he won the race by a length, the time was still over two seconds behind the 1300m Rosehill track record. That honour belongs to Trapeze Artist, who ran 1:14.19 in early 2019.
