The Missile Stakes is a Group 2 race run under Weight For Age conditions for open sprinters at Rosehill conducted by the Australian Turf Club.
The Missile Stakes is run over 1200m and is the first group race of the season in Sydney.
It was first run in 1978 and won by Idol.
The Missile Stakes has been run over shorter than 1200m until 2010. It was predominantly at Rosehill (1978-2011) but then at Warwick Farm in 2012 before moving to Randwick. It's back at Rosehill in 2019.
The Missile Stakes was a Group 3 race from 1980 until it became G2 in 2014.
The 1984 Missile Stakes was run with a flag start and was won by Plus Vite at 100-1.
The race was previously run at the end of the season allowing two year olds to run. Commands and Guineas both won as juveniles.
Pompeii and Teasing were the only mares to win since 1994 before Sweet Idea and then Tycoon Tara plus Invincible Gem. Ironically Klokka and Joanne won the four runnings from 1991 onwards.
Lonhro ran in consecutive Missile Stakes in 2001 and 2002 but because of the dates, one was as a 2yo and one was as a 4yo.
