Underwood Stakes Field

The Underwood Stakes field contains an interesting mixture of horses. Due to its odd length of 1800m, the Underwood Stakes field can comprise of stayers who are scaling back to middle-distances, or sprint/middle-distance horses who are stepping up to longer distances. Over the years, the Underwood Stakes field has come to be recognised as a “transition” race, which while not in a strict distance category of its own, serves to allow horses to shift more easily between different race lengths. Each year, the Underwood Stakes field is comprised of some very well known horses from renowned stables.
