Ranvet Stakes

THE Ranvet Stakes is a group one weight-for-age contest over 2000m held at Rosehill in March and is considered one of the major lead-up races to The Championships.

Some of Australia’s best thoroughbreds have won the Ranvet Stakes which includes back-to-back winners Tie The Knot and Theseo with the likes of Veandercross, Super Impose and Better Loosen Up winning in years gone by.

In more recent times the Ranvet Stakes has been won by middle distance horses which have the ability to see out the longer distances. Foreteller and The United States are two good examples of these staying types which means the race is wide open to the betting public.

Recent Ranvet Stakes winners

2017: Our Ivanhowe had been holding out for a rain-affected track since arriving in Australia for Freedman Racing and the patience paid off at Rosehill. The stayer was having its first start since running in the 2016 Melbourne Cup and the result was never in doubt as it cantered away from them in the straight. Race-favourite Hartnell chased gamely, but the bird had flown with Our Ivanhowe. Read a full report here.

2016: The United States was well-favoured to win the 2016 Ranvet Stakes and its class came through. The Robert Hickmott-trained six-year-old settled well back throughout the run before finding the gaps in the straight and bursting clear with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle. Punters got a good price of $5.50 for the son of Galileo which was able to hold off the challenge from Hauraki which charged late. The likes of Criterion, Dibayani and Mongolian Khan were well beaten. Read full report.

2015: A quality field was presented in 2015 where Contributer found too much for the international field. The former European runner held off Japan’s Tosen Stardom and New Zealand’s Lucia Valentina to score by just over a length. The John O’Shea-trained five-year-old did the job despite losing a plate during the run and punters that took the $2.50 were cheering it home. Only one Australian-bred runner was in the field – Fast Dragon, which was trained in New Zealand, and it wasn’t able to beat a runner home.

2014: The Kiwis got the win in 2014 when Silent Achiever scored for Roger James. The quality mare headed another all-international trifecta in the Ranvet Stakes with the Queen’s horse Carlton House finished second and It’s A Dundeel finishing in third. Silent Achiever was the lesser-fancied of the New Zealand runners with It’s A Dundeel being sent out as the $3 second favourite behind Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente. The $13 winners price was one of the biggest in recent history.

2013: Foreteller created a huge upset when winning at $31. The Chris Waller-trained gelding was considered a staying type, but it managed to sit off the pace and take the rails run to win. It was a beautiful ride from Jimmy Cassidy who showed he still had the skills which made him a champion jockey. Fiveandahalfstar was caught late in the race after looking the winner and the talented Maluckyday would up late as it typically did at odds of $26. The first and third-placed runners set up a big trifecta for punters which included the favourite in their selections.

2012: The popular combination of Peter Moody and Luke Nolen continued with Manighar in 2012. The six-year-old from France scored a narrow win over Rangirangdoo despite being hampered by the Waller runner close to the line. Punters weren’t far off the mark when taking the $6.50 for Manighar and race-favourite Shoot Out managed to finish third with Hugh Bowman in the saddle. Manighar is a good example of a stayer winning the race.
