AJC Plans Pink Stiletto At Gay Mardi Gras Weekend

Tuesday, 24th November 2009

The Australian Jockey Club’s marketing department “is about to announce plans for a new feature 2YO race, the Pink Stiletto Stakes, to be run at Randwick at a Friday meeting in February,” reported The Daily Telegraph. The raceday “will form part of official celebrations for Sydney’s annual Mardi Gras parade to be held the next day February 27”. The newspaper noted: “This Friday Randwick race meeting has the potential to become the biggest non-Saturday race meeting in Sydney each season & will directly target all those people in town for the Mardi Gras. Prize-money for the well-named Pink Stiletto Stakes is still to be announced, but is tipped to be enough to ensure the race becomes a significant qualifying race for the Golden Slipper.”
