2017 TULLOCH STAKES: RACE HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

The Tulloch Stakes is a Group 2 race for three-year-old colts and geldings conducted by the Australian Turf Club at Rosehill Gardens.

The Tulloch Stakes, named after one of the greatest champions of the Australian turf, was introduced in 1973 and is recognised as a key lead-up race to the ATC Australian Derby over 2400m at Randwick.

The Tulloch Stakes, run under set weight conditions, was run over 1850m from 1973 to 1978 before the distance was increased to 2000m in 1979 when it was awarded Group 2 status.

The 2017 Tulloch Stakes wil be run over 2000 metres at Rosehill on Saturday March 25 for $200,000 prizemoney.

The Tulloch Stakes-ATC Derby double has been completed five times by Prolific (1984), Durbridge (1991), Mahogany (1994), Ivory’s Irish (1995) and Starcraft (2004). Mahogany is the only three-year-old to win the Victoria Derby and Tulloch Stakes.

Other notable winners of the Tulloch Stakes include Longfella, Mansingh, Balmerino, Lefroy, Ming Dynasty, Prince Ruling, Northern Drake, Shogun Lodge, Philippi and Harris Tweed.
