2019 Kingston Town Classic Field

The Kingston Town Classic field is usually filled out with some of the better Perth thoroughbreds as well as visiting stayers from the eastern states.

Horses traditionally run in the Railway Stakes a fortnight earlier leading-up to the Kingston Town Classic and Sniper’s Bullet (2009) was the last to do the double in a single season. Three-year-old runners in the Kingston Town Classic field may have their final lead-up in the Group 2 W.A. Guineas and Arcadia Queen (2018) was the last WA Guineas winner to back-up and beat the older horses in the Kingston Town Classic field next start.

The 2019 Kingston Town Classic field is announced on the Monday of race week and will be published in full below once released by Perth Racing.

A 16-horse Kingston Town Classic 2019 final field is now out featuring four for last year’s winning trainers Grant and Alana Williams led by the classy filly Tuscan Queen who leads betting with William Pike to ride.

The 2019 Kingston Town Classic barrier draw took place on Tuesday evening and saw the early favourite Tuscan Queen come up trumps with barrier three.

Kingston Town Classic History

First raced in 1976 and won by Family Of Man, the Kingston Town Classic has undergone plenty of name changes. Starting with the Marlboro 50,000, the event then went on to be named the Western Mail Classic, Rothwells Stakes, Winfield Stakes, Beat Diabetes 2 Stakes and Fruit ‘N’ Veg Stakes. In 2007 it was officially named the Kingston Town Classic after the great horse’s victory in 1982.

Summer Beau won the race in two consecutive years in 1996 and 1997 and Old Comrade followed in 2000 and 2001. Niconero managed to win the Classic twice in 2006 and 2008 as did the race’s first winner Family Of Man in 1976 and 1978. More recently Playing God (2010-11) went back-to-back in the race as a three-year-old and four-year-old, while in 2015 Perfect Reflection became the first three-year-old filly to win the Kingston Town Classic. Three years later and another filly was in the mix, Arcadia Queen dominating the 2018 Kingston Town Classic results with a 4.5 length win.
