Winners Profile

In the last 32 editions, just three geldings have been successful, the last being Dance Hero for Gai Waterhouse in 2004.

15 colts have won since 1983, the most recent being Pierro, again for Gai Waterhouse in 2012.

14 fillies have saluted, including the past two editions, via Peggy Jean and Guelph.


All but two winners have come via group racing, with 7 winning & 17 placed at their lead-up run.

20 winners have come through the Group 1 Golden Slipper, six horses completing the Slipper/Sires Produce double, the last being Pierro in 2012.


In 2011, Peter Snowden’s Helmet won two Open 2YO races, before taking a giant leap in class and winning the Sires.


In 2006, trainer Paul Perry went one better, when his maiden galloper Excites posted an upset victory at $21. As the records show, this would be Excites only career win, even though he ran well in a number of subsequent events.


Only 9 favourites have been successful since 1983, the last being Sebring for Gai Waterhouse in 2008.

Hot favourites, starting at even money or shorter, don’t have a great record, with only two of six successful. In fact, the last three ‘hotties’ have all gone down (Overreach at $1.35 in 2013, All Too Hard at $1.65 in 2012 & Justice Prevails at $1.90 in 1993). 

Seven winners have started at double figure odds or better, with the latest being Yosei ($17) in 2010.

The last ‘absolute bolter’ to get up was Victory Prince ($81) in 1984. However, Excites ($21), Reganza ($13), Diamond Shower ($34) and Wonga Prince ($15) all won at juicy odds.


Barrier 1 has been the most successful since 1983 with six winners. Gates 4 & 5 are next best with four.

No horse has been successful from stall 7.

In the 23 editions boasting fields of 10 or more, 15 winners have come from single digit barriers.

The last horse to win from the inside stall was Yosei in 2010.


The last horse to jump from the outside barrier in a sizeable field was Guelph (13/13) in 2013, while Victory Vein 11/11 in 2002, Octagonal 11/11 in 1995 and Reganza 17/17 in 1989 also overcame horror starting positions.


  Controversial jockey Shane Dye loved the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes, with six wins and a second from 13 rides.

Kerrin McEvoy 5: 2-0-1 & Blake Shinn 4: 1-1-0.


This is a rare Sydney feature Jim Cassidy hasn’t won. Pumper’s record is 16: 0-1-5. Hugh Bowman is also chasing his first victory (9: 0-3-0), as is Tommy Berry (3: 0-0-1).


Sydney’s top trainers have good records in the juvenile feature, with Gai Waterhouse leading the way. Gai’s record is 24: 7-3-3. Her latest success with Pierro in 2012, the first Assertive Lad in 2000.

John Hawkes has been a long-time supporter of this race and his record is 29: 4-5-2. Team Hawkes' first winner was the mighty Octagonal in 1995, with the most recent Camarilla in 2007.

Peter Snowden and David Hayes have won it twice, while Lee Freedman, Gerald Ryan and Bede Murray have one victory a piece.

John O’Shea has a second place from six goes, while Chris Waller has only saddled up two runners previously for a third placing.
