Field

The Skyline Stakes field is comprised of some very proficient young sprinters. Open only to two year old colts and geldings, the Skyline Stakes field attracts some of the rising stars on the Sydney racing circuit. Because of it’s impressive Group 2 status, and it’s value as a follow-up race from the Silver Slipper Stakes, the Skyline Stakes field is always top quality.
