Horse Racing | Sky High Stakes

Held annually on Coolmore Classic Day, the ATC Sky High Stakes is a Group 3 event run at Sydney’s famous Rosehill Racecourse. The race is contested over the 2000m distance and usually has attracted a stakes increase to now offer total prizemoney of $350,000, looking to strengthen the depth of the race and provide a solid lead-in race to the Sydney Cup.

The event is a Quality Handicap and open to aged three-years over. Formerly the STC Sky Heights Stakes, this event was elevated to Group 3 status in 2013 and tends to attract promising youngsters on the way up or older stayers not likely to match it with the elite class. With the stakes increase, it is now won of the richest G3 events on the Australian Group racing calendar.
