In recent years, Manfred Stakes Day has become a must-attend event early in the New Year on the Australian Racing Calendar. Taking place during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival at Sandown Racecourse, the event includes a couple of handy group races, including the Group 3 Manfred Stakes.
It offers $900,000 in prize money across the day and attracts some of the better horses from across the state. The two main events on Manfred Stakes Day are for sprinting youngsters in the two-year-old and three-year-old age groups.
