The Southern Cross Stakes field usually attracts some fairly talented sprinters from stables around Sydney and Newcastle. Often, talented types from Victoria and Queensland will make the journey to contest the Southern Cross Stakes field, although it is undoubtedly usually filled out with local runners.
