The Vanity Stakes is a Group 3 race for three-year-old fillies run at Flemington conducted by the Victoria Racing Club.
It is run over 1400m and was worth $160,000 in 2020. It was first run in 1986 when won by Bestaburgh.
The Vanity Stakes is run under Set Weights and Penalty conditions and usually attracts a field of good quality fillies.
Because of the conditions of the race, The Vanity is quite often won by the best fillies in the race.
It was twice run over 1200m in 1990 and at Moonee Valley in 2007. The Vanity was run at Sandown in 1997. The race was upgraded to Group 3 in 2000.
Solicit winner of 2016 Vanity Stakes is the last filly to win the Kewney Stakes double but the race has also produced multiple Group One winners such as Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed (2011) and Australian Guineas winners in Shamrocker (2011) and Mosheen (2012). Other Group One winners to come out of the race include Zarita, Absolutely, Saleous and Universal Queen.
No filly has won the VRC Oaks and The Vanity double and just three have completed The Vanity – Kewney Stakes double – Solicit (2014), Ballet Society (2005), Tennessee Vain (1988).
The 2020 Vanity was won by Bonvicini from Pretty Brazen and Meuse.
