Horse Racing | Widden Stakes

The Widden Stakes is a Group 3 race held on Expressway Stakes Day. It is an 1100m event for the babies of the turf. Eligible two year-old fillies race under set weights plus penalties conditions. History shows that the Widden Stakes is an ideal lead up to other feature races such as the Silver Slipper Stakes and the Sweet Embrace Stakes.

The Widden Stakes was a Listed Race up until 2013 when it was finally elevated to group level. In 2014, Mossfun took out the Widden Stakes despite racing greenly, with the Team Hawkes trained youngster going on to win a memorable Golden Slipper from favourite Earthquake. Thanks to trainers John Hawkes and Gai Waterhouse, jockey Tommy Berry was able to ride three consecutive winners – Mossfun, Overreach and Driefontein.
