VAIN STAKES QUICK FACTS

The Vain Stakes is a Group 3 race held in mid-August on P B Lawrence Stakes Day. The event is run over 1100m at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The race is named in honour of former champion Stallion, Vain, who won 12 out of the 14 races he competed in, and finished second in the other two. The race was first contested in 1992, over 1200m. Since then, the name of the race and the distance has changed a number of times. However, the distance has remained at 1100m since 2010. Only three-year-old colts and geldings are eligible for the race, run under set weights and penalties conditions.

Starspangledbanner won the race in 2009 before saluting in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas the following year. The Tony Vasil trained Haradasun is another champion stallion successful in the race. He won in 2006, before going on to claim Group 1 victories in the Queen Anne Stakes (at Royal Ascot in the UK in June 2008), George Ryder Stakes and Doncaster Handicap.
