TJ Smith Stakes

T J Smith Stakes

Distance 1200m
Grade Group 1
Track  Royal Randwick
Prizemoney $2,500,000
Class WFA
2020 winner

Nature Strip ($4.40)

The T J Smith Stakes has quickly become Sydney's premier sprint race during the Autumn Carnival. Held on the first day of the Championships at Royal Randwick, the two-and-a-half million dollar prize purse attracts the best sprinters in the country, who dash for not just the cash but the prestige of a Group One win during the Championships.

The T J Smith was only inaugurated in 1997, as the Endeavour Stakes. However the name was quickly changed to honour Thomas John Smith, after he passed away in 1998. Smith was one of Australia's great horse trainers, having saddled up the likes of Tulloch, Gunsynd and Kingston Town.

Gai Waterhouse trained the winners in the 2005 and 2007 editions of the race. These were particularly noteworthy victories as T J Smith is Gai Waterhouse's father. Plenty of Sydneyiders were overjoyed to see Gai train the winner in the race named after her father.

Since then, the race has only gone from strength to strength, with the best sprinters of the past decade all making their mark at Randwick. Apache Cat, Takeover Target, Lamkan Rupee and Black Caviar have all triumphed in the T J Smith, boosting the prestige of the race.

However, it was Chautauqua who really made the race his own. The Grey Flash claimed three successive victories in the T J Smith from 2015 to 2017. The latter was arguably the most impressive victory of his career. Chautauqua had Buckley's chance at the 300-metre mark, before he produced a barnstorming run down the centre of the track to claim the win.

2018 T J Smith Stakes

In 2018, short-priced favourite Redzel looked to have the victory in the bag coming around the home turn. That was until Trapeze Artist loomed on the outside and let down with a strong run.

Trapeze Artist ended up winning by a comfortable two lengths.

2019 T J Smith Stakes

Last year it was Santa Ana Lane who put them to the sword in the T J Smith.

The mercurial sprinter came to the outside and flashed down the centre of the track to record a dominant victory.

2020 T J Smith Stakes

This year powerhouse sprinter Nature Strip confirmed his title as Australia's best racehorse with an easy win in the T J Smith.

He got to the front and never looked like being run down, kicking away to win by two lengths.
