Staged during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, the George Ryder Stakes is a premier weight-for-age race for middle-distance horses.
Boasting $1 million in prizemoney, the George Ryder attracts a number of star gallopers on Golden Slipper Day.
Five Group 1s are held on the day with the Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) being the main race for the two-year-olds. The other Group 1 races are the George Ryder Stakes, Ranvet Stakes (2000m), Rosehill Guineas (2000m) and The Galaxy (1100m).
Supporting the Group 1 races are the Group 3 Epona Stakes (1900m), Group 3 NE Manion Cup (2400m) and Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m).
The most reliable lead-up races to the George Ryder are the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) and the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), with those two races producing seven of the past 14 George Ryder Stakes winners.
Although the race favours middle-distance types, a few exceptional sprinters throughout the years have been able to stretch out to between 1300m and 1500m to claim the event.
It was first run in 1903 when won by Marvel Loch and has grown in stature to become one of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival’s most revered races. The race was originally known as the Railway Stakes before becoming the Railway Handicap.
A couple of other variations followed before the George Ryder Stakes name was used from 1974 onwards.
The George Ryder is run under weight-for-age conditions and is open to horses three years old and upwards.
Winning the George Ryder enables automatic entry into the $3 million Doncaster Mile (1600m) held at Royal Randwick Racecourse two weeks later.
Champion mare Winx has stamped her authority on the race with four straight wins between 2016-19.
Some classy gallopers have won the race, including Manikato (1979-80), Emancipation (1983-84), Schillaci (1993), Lonhro (2003-04), Racing To Win (2006), Haradasun (2007), Weekend Hussler (2008), Rangirangdoo (2011), Pierro (2013), Gordon Lord Byron (2014) and Real Impact (2015).
