Horse Racing | Boronia Stakes

Held on CF Orr Stakes Day is the Boronia Stakes, a Group 3 race run at Melbourne’s iconic Caulfield Racecourse. The event, also known as the Kevin Hayes Stakes, is restricted to three-year-old fillies. It is contested at set weights and penalties. These conditions tend to favour the better gallopers, and typically the classier females prevail. The race is run over the distance of 1200m and is often used by gallopers who may tackle bigger events later in the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

These targets include the Group 3 Vanity Stakes, a similar race held on Black Caviar Lightning Day at Flemington, or the Angus Armanasco Stakes, a $200,000 Group 2 traditionally held at Caulfield the following week. In 2014, a gutsy filly from the Peter Moody stable named Spirits Dance took out the Boronia Stakes before backing up a fortnight later to take out the Angus Armanasco Stakes. Other top shelf winners of the Boronia or Kevin Hayes Stakes include; Typhoon Tracy (2009) and Hollow Bullet (2005).
