The Schillaci Stakes field has included some very talented horses in the past, including Black Caviar, Grey Way, Mahogany and Miss Andretti. Due to its Group 2 status and lucrative $200,000 purse, the Schillaci Stakes field attracts a decent selection of horses. Those horses that end up in the Schillaci Stakes field usually come from some recent black type competition, as they are halfway through their spring campaign.
