Horse Racing | Concorde Stakes

The Concorde Stakes is a Group 3 race that takes place during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival on the Chelmsford Stakes Day. A race for three-year-olds and up under set weight plus penalties conditions, it covers a distance of 1000m, with $125,000 in prize money. While Chelmsford Stakes Day is headlined by the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes and the Group 2 Furious Stakes, the Concorde Stakes still attracts some handy sprinters looking to work their way up the ladder.

Horses contesting this race tend to head on to the Group 2 Theo Mark Stakes and the Group 3 Cameron Handicap. First held in 1990 as a Listed Race, the Stakes went on to gain Group 3 status in 1997. Prominent winners of this event include; Tiger Tees (2012), Red Oog (2005), Private Steer (2003), Guineas (1999) and Joanne (1991).
