Price Pair Set for Coolmore Stud Stakes 2016

Price Pair Set for Coolmore Stud Stakes 2016

Caulfield’s Mick Price is finding it hard to separate the chances of his 2016 Coolmore Stud Stakes duo Extreme Choice and Flying Artie, but admits the former could be hard to hold off down the Flemington straight on Saturday.

Extreme Choice is top fancy to post a third Group 1 win in the 2016 Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington ...

The Group 1 2015 Winterbottom Stakes is an exciting 1200m sprint held in November annually at the scenic Ascot Racecourse in Perth. Run under weight-for-age conditions, the contenders aged three-years-old and up compete for the lucrative prize purse of $750 000. The event is conducted on day two of the major three-day summer racing carnival in Western Australia, which also features the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) and the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m).

As the premier sprint event in Perth, entries are generally handy local sprinters that may have previously contested the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) three weeks before or the Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m) in late October.

Runners that do well in the Winterbottom Stakes may compete in the most prestigious weight-for-age event at the carnival, the Kingston Town Classic the following week. Horses, however, not quite up to the standard needed for the Kingston Town may continue on to contend other weight-for-age events in Perth including the Group 3 AJ Sachill Stakes (1400m) a fortnight later.

Winterbottom Stakes History

The Winterbottom Stakes began as a principal race run over seven furlongs and was first run in 1952 when Raconteur claimed victory. In 1973 the race distance was converted to 1400m and the event gained Group 2 status in 1979. The length was decreased to its current 1200m sprint distance in 1993.

A number of high quality horses have claimed victory in the Winterbottom Stakes including Takeover Target (2008), Miss Andretti (2005) and Ellicorsam (2004) who holds the current race record of 1:08.6.

Since 2011 the Winterbottom Stakes has run as a Group 1 feature, having achieved elite level status.
