Mannerism Stakes History

One of the younger races held at Caulfield, the Mannerism Stakes was inaugurated in 1989 when English Charm claimed victory.

Originally called the Fashion Stakes, the race started out as a Listed event before gaining Group 3 status in 1993.

The race name was changed to its current Mannerism Stakes title in 1995, and for two years in 1996 and 1997 the Mannerism Stakes was run over 1411m.

Mannerism Stakes Betting

A quality mares’ showdown, the Mannerism Stakes is also a great betting opportunity for punters during the autumn.

When looking for a guide to your Mannerism Stakes selections there are a number of good lead-up races including the Group 3 Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in early February as well as the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) at Randwick in Sydney.

Mares that run in the Mannerism Stakes may continue on to contest the Group 3 Matron Stakes (1600m) at Flemington a fortnight later before heading to Sydney for the more lucrative events including the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Classic (1500m) at Rosehill in mid-March and the Group 1 Queen of the Turf Stakes (1500m) in early April, so look for the doubles betting markets that combine these races.

A good Mannerism Stakes betting tip is to consider how each mare has performed against colts and geldings in other races where competition was open. As a set weights and penalties event, when you make your betting selections, check out the weight penalties each horse has been given.

The boxed quinella is a popular punt in the Mannerism Stakes. You can usually spot two likely winners out of the field, and betting on those two can often return solid dividends.
