Millie Fox Stakes

Millie Fox Stakes

Sat, 21 February 2015

The Millie Fox Stakes is a Group Two quality handicap race with a prize purse of $175,000. Run at Rosehill racecourse over 1300m for fillies and mares three-years-old and older in either February or March.

The inaugrial race was run back in 1996 when Chlorophyll got the honours. Since then only two horses have won the race more than once. Montana Flyer in 2010 and 2011 and Red Tracer in 2012,2013 and 2014.

The Millie Fox Stakes was originally a Listed race before being regraded as a Group Three race in 2007. In 2013 it was upgraded again to a Group Two race. The race is named after the wife of Stan Fox who took a keen interest in the Australian thoroughbred industry. Stan Fox was an industrialist in New South Wales, race horse owner and breeder who passed away in 1974. The Group Two Stan Fox Stakes is named in his honour and is held at Rosehill in September.

Other Group races run at Rosehill on the same day as the Millie Fox Stakes are the Hobartville Stakes and the Silver Slipper Stakes.

In 2014 Red Tracer took a lovely sit during the running and was perfectly positioned to pounce when they straightened for home. Soon after tunring she put a gap on the field in the run for the post. She was almost un-backable at $1.57 and lived up to those expectations to claim her third Millie Fox Stakes win in a row.
