As a set weights race, colts and geldings must carry 56.0kg while fillies must carry 54.0kg. Many youngsters will use this race to prepare for the Group 3 Sires Produce Stakes over 1400m in a few weeks time.

The Karrakatta Plate – WA Sires’ Produce Stakes double was last completed by Whispering Brook (2016).

2018 Karrakatta Plate Field

The Karrakatta Plate field attracts a quality line-up of mainly Perth-trained two-year-old sprinters chasing a share in the half-a-million in prize money. Possible lead-up races into the Karrakatta Plate field each autumn including the Listed Perth Stakes (1100m) the fortnight before or the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes (1100m) also held at Ascot two weeks earlier.

In 2017 the Karrakatta Plate winner Lucy Mae ran second in the Gimcrack Stakes in the lead-up and second in the W.A. Sires’ Produce Stakes next start behind Debellatio who improved on a third in the Karrakatta Plate that year.

The official Karrakatta Plate 2018 field and barriers will be provided below the week of the race once Perth Racing released the final acceptances.

The 2018 Karrakatta Plate Final Field attracted a capacity 16 starters plus an emergency runner Market Ruler (17) drawn the outside alley. David Harrison’s undefeated grey Chix Pic chases a third win on the back of taking out the Perth Stakes by two and a half lengths, but has work to do from a double-digit alley (14).
