Horse Racing | Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes

The Group 3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes is one of the premier sprint races held on CF Orr Stakes Day in mid-February. The event is restricted to mares and is run over 1200m at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse. The set weight and penalty conditions of the race favour experienced and talented mares over their younger counterparts.

The Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes tends to be used by mares as a lead up race to similar events later in the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival, such as the Mannerism Stakes, a Group 3 held at the same course on Blue Diamond Stakes Day. In 2014, Bonaria ran an impressive third behind A Time For Julia and Danestroem in this event before going on to take out the Mannerism Stakes a fortnight later. Other notable winners of this event include Beaded (2011), Beautiful Gem (2006) and Glamour Puss (2005).
