After dodging an Everest and staying in Melbourne throughout the 2023 Spring Carnival, Imperatriz will target the TJ Smith Stakes at Randwick on the first day of The Championsips, with this 1200m Group 1 likely to be the strongest sprint race of the entire Autumn Carnival.

A mare who was unbeaten from four outings last spring, Imperatriz is set to contest a three-run campaign, with the TJ Smit Stakes likely to follow runs in both the Black Caviar Lightning and William Reid Stakes.

Imperatriz is a $3.40 favourite with ChaseBet to win the 2024 TJ Smith Stakes, while I Wish I Win ($4.80) is a clear second favourite.

While the son of Savabeel hasn't saluted since taking out this feature in 2023, he completed only a two-run spring prep and that culminated with a second-place finish in The Everest.

Joe Pride prepares both Think About It and Private Eye, who share the third line of betting at $8, and that pair are just ahead of Giga Kick ($8.50), who finished second in the 2023 TJ Smith Stakes.

$8.50 is also available for In Secret, a two-time Group 1 winning Godolphin spinter who has mixed her somewhat since taking out the 2023 Newmarket Handicap.

TJ Smith Stakes Winners

First run and won in 1997 by Mahogany, a number of the finest sprinters in Australia have taken out the TJ Smith Stakes - including Chautauqua, Black Caviar, Nature Strip and the unforgettable Takeover Target.

The race gained Group 1 status in 2005 and today it's worth $3 million, with this 1200m feature one of four Group 1's contested on the opening day of The Championships from Royal Randwick.

Following up from the The Galaxy, which is run two weeks prior, the TJ Smith Stakes is the premier sprint of the Sydney Autumn Carnival.

Nature Strip (2021 and 2022) and I Wish I Win (2023) have won the last three editions of the TJ Smith Stakes.
