The Percy Sykes Stakes is a Group 2 race for two-year-old fillies conducted by the Australian Turf Club at Royal Randwick as part of The Championships.
The Percy Sykes Stakes was first run as the Keith Mackay Handicap in 1960 when it was named in honour of former Australian Jockey Club chairman Keith Mackay.
The race was run as the Royal Randwick Stakes in 2014 and became the Percy Sykes Stakes in 2015 when it was renamed to honour the late veterinarian Percy Sykes, a leading Sydney racing industry figure who was renowned for his veterinary skills working with leading trainers such as Tommy Smith, Bart Cummings, Gai Waterhouse and Jack Denham.
The Keith Mackay/Percy Sykes Stakes is run under set weights and penalty conditions after originally being a quality handicap.
It became a Listed Race in 1979 and was promoted to Group 3 status in 2014. The Percy Sykes Stakes will be run as a Group 2 race for the first time in 2017.

The 2021 Percy Sykes Stakes was run over 1200m at Royal Randwick for prizemoney of $1,000,000.
