The Flight Stakes field often contains some of the most talented milers and sprint runners in Australia and from elsewhere. Open only to three year old fillies, the Flight Stakes field attracts fantastic racing talent from across the country and from international locations such as Ireland, New Zealand and Great Britain. Over the years, the Flight Stakes field has grown in prominence and recognition, and the race itself is now considered one of the premier sprint events for fillies in Australia.
2016 Flight Stakes Field
The Flight Stakes field will be released on Wednesday, September 28th, before the race itself on Saturday October 3rd. The 2016 Flight Stakes field is slated to include some very impressive horses, ensuring that we’ll have a great race to watch on the day. However, a star-studded 2015 Flight Stakes field means more difficulty for punters, as picking a winner from a group of proven horses can be harder than it sounds.
