The Hobartville Stakes is an Australian Turf Club Group 2 Thoroughbred horse race, for three-year-olds at set weights, over a distance of 1400 metres. It is held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney, Australia in the early autumn.  Prize money is $400,000.


== History ==
Originally an early spring event, it was transferred to the autumn in 1978, along with the three-year-old "triple crown", Canterbury Guineas, Rosehill Guineas and Australian Derby. The Canterbury Guineas was subsequently replaced by the Randwick Guineas in 2006, as the first leg of the "triple crown". The Hobartville Stakes is named after one of the most historic stud farms in New South Wales.
