Formerly a support race to the Group 1 Manikato Stakes, the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes horse race now has a day all to itself on the Melbourne Spring Racing calendar. The meeting, which features two Group 2 events, is named after Malaysian businessman Dato’ Tan Chin Nam, a long-time supporter of the Australian thoroughbred racing industry.
Tan had a long association with champion Aussie trainer Bart Cummings dating back to dual Melbourne Cup winner Think Big to multiple Group 1 victor Saintly and 2010 Cox Plate champion So You Think (before he raced overseas). Tan’s farm at Burradoo in NSW is named Think Big Stud, after his dual Melbourne Cup winner.
