Held annually in late December as a key lead-up to the Perth Cup, the 2018 Ted Van Heemst Stakes is a 2100m staying event at Ascot Racecourse formerly known as the C.B. Cox Stakes before being renamed in 2016.

Worth a lucrative $400,000 in prize money, the Group 2 event attracts good staying horses that are suited to the weight-for-age conditions. The Ted Van Heemst Stakes is the ideal lead-up race to the Group 2 $500,000 Perth Cup (2400m) held around a fortnight later either on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day at the end of the Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

Ted Van Heemst / CB Cox Stakes History

Inaugurated in 1914 as the Grandstand Plate, the Ted Van Heemst Stakes was renamed in 2016 in honour of Western Australian Racing Hall of Famer Ted Van Heemst and was previously known as the CB Cox Stakes from 1920-2015.

The race was previously contested over 2400m, but was reduced in 2009 after the Perth Cup distance was also cut from a traditional two-mile cup distance (3200m) to the mile and a half (2400m).

The Ted Van Heemst Stakes has held Group 2 status since 1979 and has been won by a number of notable stayers including Eurythmic (1920) who went on to win a host of interstate Group 1 races including the Caulfield Cup (1920), that year’s Melbourne Cup winner Piping Lane (1972), the reigning Cox Plate champion at the time Battle Heights (1974) and more recently Delicacy (2015) who won the following January’s Peth Cup.
