    Cantala Stakes History

    The Cantala Stakes has undergone more name changes than most races since its inception in 1881. It has had 10 name changes since that time and the more popular include the Honda Stakes, Nissan Stakes and more recently the Emirates Stakes. 

    Despite being run under a different name, punters have always had a good association betting on the Cantala Stakes and the quality winners is a testament to that. 

    As long as the winners are considered as “classy” punters will see the Cantala Stakes as a race to continue to bet on. 

    An important scheduling move was made when moving the Cantala Stakes from the last day of the carnival to the first. This gives the winners more chances to win throughout the carnival if they decide the back up. 

    With $1 million on offer, it’s one of the premier mile contests in Australia.

    Former international Best of Days was a winner in 2018 and that franked the international form, which is becoming more prevalent throughout Australian racing. 

    The Kennedy Mile has long been a great form guide for races in the following autumn and even throughout the Melbourne Spring Carnival. Winners such as All Silent, Boban, Le Romain and Turn Me Loose have continued on from their Cantala Stakes wins with more success. 

    Punters should look for the battle-hardened types which have been exposed to the top level of racing in the past and will handle all the pressure that comes with running in the Cantala Stakes.
