The 2015 Fillies Classic at Moonee Valley will be run on Saturday 25th October 2015.

The Fillies Classic is open to three-year-old fillies only and is run under set weight conditions, where all runners carry 57kg.

It is a prestigious middle distance gallop run over 1600m and is worth a lucrative $220,000. The Fillies Classic was originally run over the slightly shorter 1500m distance but was increased in 2010 to 1600m.

Moonee Valley Fillies Classic Lead Up Races

As the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic is conducted towards the tail end of the coveted Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival, there are a number of earlier events well suited to fillies looking for a preparatory run leading up to the Classic.

Good lead-up races to the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic include the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) the week before at Caulfield and the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) in January at Flemington.

The last filly to take out the Vanity – Fillies Classic double was Romneya in 2009.

The Moonee Valley Fillies Classic is also the ideal lead up run for top class fillies on their way to take on a field of male rivals in the $750, 000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) held on Flemington’s Super Saturday of Racing or for those seeking another fillies only affair, the $400,000 Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1600m) on the same day is the perfect follow up race to the fillies classic.
