Manikato Stakes Information

The Manikato Stakes is a Group l sprint race and is the one of the premier races of the Spring Carnival. It is held at Moonee Valley racecourse each year over 1200m.

The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $1 Million and is at WFA.

The 2019 Manikato Stakes will be run on Friday the 25th of October, 2019 at Moonee Valley racecourse.

The Manikato Stakes is the ideal launching pad into the VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) and it follows up from the Moir Stakes (1000m).

Given it’s a sprint race, barriers you’d think would be important. But that isn’t the case, with the most successful barriers in the last 30 years being 10 and 11, with five wins each.
