The ATC Carbine Club Stakes is a Group 3 race held at the famous Royal Randwick Racecourse during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. The Carbine Stakes is part of Day 1 of The Championships and staged alongside other prominent Group 3 races including the PJ Bell Stakes, the Kindergarten Stakes and the Adrian Knox Stakes. A race for three-year-olds at set weights plus penalties, the Carbine Club Stakes is run over a distance of 1600m and offers $200,000 in prize money. Starting off as a Listed Race in 1986, it soon gained momentum and became a Group 3 in 2011.
The race name is in honour of Carbine, a dual Sydney Cup winner who also made a huge impact on breeding in Australia and England. The Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes is a handy lead up race for this event, while many of the contenders go on the race in the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate and even the Group 1 ATC Derby (2400m) or Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m). Handy horses to win the ATC Carbine Club Stakes include; Toydini (2013), Belmonte (2006), Le Zagaletta (1999) and Juggler (1995).
