Chipping Norton Stakes History

A weight-for-age race held during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, the Chipping Norton Stakes is open to horses three-years-old and upwards.

Supporting the Chipping Norton Stakes is the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m), Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m), Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) and Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m). The Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) often attracts a nice field also.

Wallace Mortlake won the inaugural Chipping Norton Stakes in 1925 when the race was a Principle race and run over 1¼ miles (approximately 2000m).

In 1972 the race distance was raised to 2100m and in 1980 the distance was shortened to its current 1600m and elevated to Group 2 status.

The Chipping Norton Stakes was awarded Group 1 status in 1986 and has been the most highly-regarded Warwick Farm feature since that time.

Although the race is Warwick Farm’s feature race of the year, it was run at Randwick Racecourse in 1992, 2001, 2008, 2009 and 2016.

With $600,000 in prizemoney the Chipping Norton Stakes attracts the country’s best milers and middle-distance horses as they prepare for further Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival targets.

The Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) held at Royal Randwick Racecourse two weeks earlier is the most reliable guide to the Chipping Norton.

Some of Australia’s most talented horses have won the premier weight-for-age event with Tie The Knot winning it across four consecutive editions.

Other notable winners of the Chipping Norton Stakes include Amounis (1927), Phar Lap (1930), Rogilla (1935), Tranquil Star (1941), Bernborough (1946), Comic Court (1951), Tulloch (1958 & 1960), Sky High (1962), Rain Lover (1969), Emancipation (1984), Our Waverley Star (1987), Super Impose (1991-92), Octagonal (1997), Tie The Knot (1999-2002), Lonhro (2003), Starcraft (2004), Grand Armee (2005), Desert War (2006), Shoot Out (2012-13), Boban (2014) and Winx (2016-19).
