The 2017 Sunline Stakes will be run over 1600 metres at Moonee Valley on the night of Friday March 24 for prizemoney of $200,000.

Notable winners of the Sunline Stakes include Princess Veronica, Bianco Flyer, Boardwalk Angel, Acushla Marie, Excited Angel, Burning Embers, Rose O’War, Sylvaner, Beautiful Gem, Zarita, Noble Protector and the only dual winner Spirit Song.
