Held annually in early October on Spring Champion Stakes Day during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, the Angst Stakes is a Group 3 race for mares. The event is run over 1600m at Randwick Racecourse, under set weight and penalty conditions. With $125,000 up for grabs, the race usually attracts talented mares which are a step or two below the best in the country. The Tibbie Stakes, a Group 3 race held on Newcastle Cup Day, has proved to be a good guide to this event. In 2012, Nocturnelle managed to win in the Tibbie Stakes before blitzing the field in the Angst Stakes less than a month later.
The race was inaugurated in 1994 as a Listed Race, before being granted Group 3 status in 2013. It has also been contested over 1400m and 1500m previously. In 2013, the distance was lifted to 1600m.
