The Surround Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) and the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m).

Earlier in the carnival the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) run under the same conditions for fillies is an excellent lead-up event to the Surround Stakes. Both races suit good quality females and the Light Fingers/Surround Stakes double is a very popular wager at the carnival. The last filly to win both races in the same season was Gold Edition in 2007. Watching for dominant spring females with a good chance in these sprint races is a great tip for punters, not only with win bets but place bets in the races as well.

The Surround Stakes is often used as a lead-up to some of the carnival’s more prestigious and lucrative three-year-old events including the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) held the following week and the premier Group 1 fillies’ event, Arrowfield Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill the next month. Spotting the leading fillies in this earlier race can lead to some excellent tips and wagering successes throughout the carnival!

The Surround Stakes is organised by the Australian Turf Club (ATC) and usually run at Warwick Farm Racecourse but in 2009 it was run at Royal Randwick. It was first run in 1979 as a Group 3 event and gained Group 2 status in 1986. The increased status and importance of this quality fillies’ event now means some really generous betting pools are open on the Surround Stakes every year. Bookies offer a complete range of bet types on the race as well as plenty of other bigger events such as the Melbourne Cup. So, make sure you jump online and check out the odds for the next Surround Stakes.
