The Stan Fox Stakes field is usually comprised of a selection of great sprinters, both from Sydney and from elsewhere. The Stan Fox Stakes field attracts horses who have a great penchant for running well against stronger fields, and horses who can really dig deep for that last spurt of speed that is so necessary when competing against top quality sprinters. The best value to be found in the Stan Fox Stakes field is in those horses who kicked their spring campaigns off relatively early and have had a chance to take the odd weekend off.
2016 Stan Fox Stakes Field
The 2016 Stan Fox Stakes field will be an interesting one. The 2015 Stan Fox Stakes field will be running on a day devoid of Group 1 events at the tail end of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. As a result, there’s a good chance that the 2015 Stan Fox Stakes field will contain some higher quality horses that might usually be found only in group 1 events at that point in the year.
The 2016 Stan Fox Stakes field is below.
