The Light Fingers Stakes is a Group 2 race for three year old fillies conducted by the Australian Turf Club at Randwick.
The Light Fingers Stakes was first run in 1981 and was won by Shaybisc.
The Light Fingers Stakes is run over 1200m under Set Weights conditions. It was worth $200,000 in 2020.
It was a Listed race to begin with then Group 2 in 1986, G3 1987 to 1990 then back to G2 until now.
It has always been run mainly at the 1200m but was 1100m in 1997 and 1998. Randwick, Warwick Farm and Rosehill have all hosted the race.

Three Doncaster winners have won the race earlier in the prep – Emancipation, Magic Flute and Skating.
Alizee won the G1 Queen Of The Turf at the end of a campaign which started with a Light Fingers Stakes victory.
