The Tibbie Stakes is a Group 3 race that takes place on Newcastle Gold Cup Day during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. It is a race for fillies and mares under set weights plus penalties conditions and covers a distance of 1400m. With prize money of $125,000, it attracts some handy female sprinters from across the state. It was originally run as a Listed Race back in 2005, before gaining Group 3 status in 2013.
Fillies and mares who participate in this race tend to go on to compete in the Group 3 Angst Stakes. Nocturnelle (2012) notched the Tibbie/Angst double, while another notable victor was More Strawberries (2011) for Gai Waterhouse, who trained four winners of this event between 2006 and 2013.
