The 2018 Sir John Monash Stakes is a Group 3 race held at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne each year around July. Forming a part of the minor Victoria Winter Carnival, which rolls into the prestigious Spring Carnival, the Sir John Monash Stakes is the feature race of the day. No other black-type racing is held on the same program.
Open to all comers on a weight for age basis, the Sir John Monash Stakes presents a thrilling sprint over 1100m. Paying a total purse of $150,000, it is not the most lucrative race held at Caulfield but it certainly provides great entertainment on the day.
There are very few races you can watch for leadup form to the Sir John Monash Stakes, due to its spot in the calendar. However, it acts as a great form indicator for later races in the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
Caulfield Racecourse is a beautiful location for horse racing, and adds prestige to each race that is hosted there. Get on down to the Sir John Monash Stakes Day for a relaxing day of racing without the massive crowds at one of the world’s most prestigious tracks.
