Australia | FEATURE RACE GUIDE
The Tulloch Stakes is a Group 2 race for three-year-old colts and geldings conducted by the Australian Turf Club at Rosehill Gardens.
The Tulloch Stakes, named after one of the greatest champions of the Australian turf, was introduced in 1973 and is recognised as a key lead-up race to the ATC Australian Derby over 2400m at Randwick.
The Tulloch Stakes, run under set weight conditions, was run over 1850m from 1973 to 1978 before the distance was increased to 2000m in 1979 when it was awarded Group 2 status.
The Tulloch Stakes-ATC Derby double has been completed eight times by Prolific (1984), Durbridge (1991), Mahogany (1994), Ivory's Irish (1995), Starcraft (2004), Jon Snow (2017), Levendi (2018) and Angel Of Truth (2019).
That means the last three years has seen the Derby winner come from this race.
Mahogany is the only three-year-old to win the Victoria Derby and Tulloch Stakes.
The 2020 Tulloch Stakes was worth $200,000 in prizemoney.
Other notable winners of the Tulloch Stakes include Longfella, Mansingh, Balmerino, Lefroy, Ming Dynasty, Prince Ruling, Northern Drake, Shogun Lodge, Philippi, Harris Tweed, Jon Snow, Levendi and Angel Of Truth.
The 2019 Tulloch Stakes was won by Angel Of Truth from Madison County and Cossetot.
