WINTERBOTTOM STAKES HISTORY

The Winterbottom Stakes is Group 1 weight-for-age sprint race over 1200m, run during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival in November each year.

Upgraded to Group 1 status in 2011, the race was originally run on the same day as the Railway Stakes but now takes place a week later when it is the feature race.

The Winterbottom Stakes is worth a total of $1 million in prizemoney and attracts some of the best sprinters from around the country.

The two-time winner Buffering is just one of the big names to take out this prestigious event having won in 2013 and 2015.

Other big name winners of the Winterbottom Stakes include Takeover Target (2008) and Miss Andretti (2005).

First run in 1952 when Raconteur won the trophy, the race was then run over the longer 1400m distance. It wasn’t until 1993 that it was reduced to the 1200m race it is today.

Up until 1979, it was classed as a Principal race before being re-classified as a Group 2 contest. The race then earned Group 1 status in 2011 when favourite Ortensia won first prize.

In recent years, some of the Winterbottom Stakes runners head to the Group 3 AJ Scahill Stakes which is also a weight-for-age event run two weeks later over 1400m.

ASCOT RACECOURSE HISTORY

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.
