The Summoned Stakes is the final race of Sandown Classic Day and brings down the curtain on the Melbourne Spring Carnival. It is a Group 3 race for mares under set weights and penalty conditions, run over 1200m. It is the sole group race for ‘mares only’ on Sandown Classic Day and provides owners and breeders one last opportunity to grab some black type success.
It was first run as a Listed Race back in 1996. In 2013, Floria’s victory heralded the first Summoned Stakes run at Group 3 level, with connections collecting a purse of $90,000. The Peter Moody trained mare started at prohibitive odds ($1.50) and had to fight hard to stave off Hi Belle and Wistful.
