Held annually in early August, Missile Stakes Day is one of the premier events at the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. Headlining the day is the Group 2 Missile Stakes, a weight-for-age race with prize money of $200,000 up for grabs.
The event, held at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, is widely popular amongst racing enthusiasts as it is the first group race of the season. The race was inaugurated in 1978 as a Principal Race, before being elevated to Group 3 status in 1980. It was again upgraded in 2014, this time to a Group 2 race.
