The Group 2 WH Stocks Stakes is early on during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Taking place in late September at Moonee Valley on Moir Stakes Night, the WH Stocks is a 1600m middle distance event. Worth $200,000 in prize money it is for mares aged four-years-old and above, and is run under weight-for-age conditions.

Other races solely for mares held earlier in the carnival are the Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) and the Group 2 Lets Elope Stakes (1400m), and a few runners may have previously contested these shorter distanced events.

The Stocks Stakes is an excellent lead up to events like the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) at Flemington and the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) on Caulfield Cup day in October. The race usually attracts a field of handy mares and quality winners include Tuesday Joy (2008), Atlantic Jewel (2013) who ran second in that year’s Underwood Stakes before success in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) and Dear Demi (2014).

The WH Stocks Stakes 2019 took place under the lights at Moonee Valley on Friday September 27, 2019 and was won by Group 1 winner Princess Jenni.

WH Stocks Stakes History

The inaugural race in 1973 was won by Mellition. It began as a principal race run over 1600m and then became a listed event in 1979. Over a decade later it was elevated to Group 3 status before finally becoming a Group 2 event in 2005. For the first seven years, the race was known as the Dallas Handicap. Then from 1980 onwards it became the W H Stocks Stakes.

Notable winners of the Stocks Stakes include Mellition (1973), Digger’s Lass (1985), Gold Lottey (2002), Atlantic Jewel (2013) and I Am A Star (2017-18). Stocks Stakes results and winning times since 2000 are provided below.
