Clare Lindop Stakes Race History

has been a Listed race for over twenty years.

In July 2020, Thoroughbred Racing South Australia (TRSA) and the South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC) unveiled the new race names of six black-type South Australian races following a joint decision to honour some of South Australian racings greatest icons. The change of race name requests were voted on by the pattern committee and presented to Racing Australia for approval. Former jockeys Clara Lindop and John Letts, trainer Leon Macdonald, industry figure the late David Coles, galloper Tobin Bronze and stallion Without Fear now all have races named in their honour.

Clare Lindop has won numerous South Australian jockeys premierships and has had over 1300 career wins including four Group 1’s. She was the first Australian female jockey to ride in the Melbourne Cup when she rode Debben for Leon Macdonald in 2003. Her first Group 1 win was Exalted Time in the 2006 Adelaide Cup, and in 2008 she won the Victoria Derby on Rebel Raider.

Clare was inducted into the South Australian Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame in 2018.
