The Kingston Town Classic is a Group 1 weight-for-age race over 1800m held at Ascot Racecourse in Perth in December each year.
The premier event forms part of the Perth Summer Racing Carnival and is run two weeks after the Railway Stakes, and a week after the Winterbottom Stakes – the two other Group 1s staged in the west.
This prestigious race attracts first class middle distance gallopers who are chasing a share of the $1 million prizemoney on offer.
Horses fresh off a Spring Carnival campaign in Melbourne are also lured across to compete against the locals which boosts the interest of the carnival.
The Group 1 race was first run in 1976 and was then known as the Marlboro 50,000. Since then it has experienced several name changes including the Rothwell’s Stakes and Winfield Stakes until it was decided to name it after the legendary triple Cox Plate winner in 2007.
The race distance was also changed at one stage. Between 1999 and 2001, the race was shortened to 1600m, before being changed back to today’s distance of 1800m.
The race has a unique history about it beginning with its inaugural running in 1976. That year, the race was won by three-year-old Family Of Man, who just three weeks later took out the West Australian Derby (2400m). He then returned in 1978 and won the race for a second time, a trend that would be repeated several times.
Other dual winners include Summer Beau (1996 & 1997), Old Comrade (2000 & 2001), Niconero (2006 & 2008) and Playing God (2010 & 2011).
Other big name winners include Sniper’s Bullet (2009), Better Loosen Up (1989), Vo Rogue (1988), Military Plume (1986) and the king himself Kingston Town in 1982.

Perth Racing (formerly the Western Australian Turf Club) has been hosting thoroughbred race meetings at Ascot Racecourse for over 150 years.
Although the course hosts three Group 1 events throughout the year, the time-honoured Perth Cup (2400m) remains one of Perth’s feature races and is held on New Year’s Day.
The racecourse is situated approximately 8 kilometres east of the Perth City Centre with the head office of The Western Australian Turf Club positioned directly opposite.
ASCOT TRACK DESCRIPTION
Regarded as the ‘grand old lady’ of Australian racecourses, Perth’s Ascot Racecourse is a well-drained turf track with a 300 metre inclining straight regarded by experts as the most severe test of stayers in Australia.
Ascot is one of the smaller racecourses in Australia and inside barriers can be an advantage.
Races are run in an anti-clockwise direction.
