Surround Stakes History

The Surround Stakes (1400m) takes place at Royal Randwick Racecourse annually in late February or early March during the Sydney Autumn Carnival and is run at set weights conditions for three-year-old fillies.

Named after 1976–1977 Australian Champion Racehorse of the Year, Surround is the only three-year-old filly in history to win the Cox Plate.

First run in 1979 and won by Impede as a Group 3 race, the Surround Stakes took on Group 2 status in 1986 and will be elevated to a Group 1 for the 2018 renewal.

Other races on the day include: Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m), Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m), Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m).

The honour roll includes top racehorses such as Skating (1993), Gold Edition (2007), More Joyous (2010), Streama (2012), Dear Demi (2013), First Seal (2015) and Shoals (2018).

The Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) is regarded as one of the traditional lead-ups to the Surround Stakes, while competitors in the Surround are likely to push on to Group 3 Keith F Nolan Classic (1600m) at Kembla Grange two weeks later.
