Horse Racing | Belle Of The Turf Stakes

The Belle of the Turf Stakes is a Group 3 race held at the beautiful Gosford Racecourse during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. On the same day as the Gosford Gold Cup and the Takeover Target Stakes, The Belle of the Turf is for fillies and mares and is raced under Quality Handicap conditions. Given the distance is 1600m and it is held at Gosford, it suits horses which can get up on the speed and dash away down the short 245m straight.

Previously a Listed Race held in October, the Belle of the Turf Stakes was upgraded to Group 3 status for the 2013/2014 season and transferred to early January. It is a quality feature event, attractive because of its black type status and the $125,000 in stakes on offer. It is well-supported by leading city trainers with the likes of Gai Waterhouse, John Hawkes and Anthony Cummings saddling up successful ‘belles’.
