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.

2017 Southern Cross Stakes Field

The 2017 Southern Cross Stakes field should be released on the Wednesday prior to the race and will very likely reflect the improved reputation of the race as an important early year meet. Because of its status as a decent lead-up race, or Autumn competition, the Southern Cross Stakes field will probably contain a few horses looking to capitalise on an extended Autumn campaign.
