The 2016 Bletchingly Stakes is raced over a sprinting distance of 1200m at Caulfield Racecourse.

As there are very few black-type events held during winter in Melbourne, the Bletchingly Stakes attracts considerable attention from punters and race fans.

Run under weight-for-age conditions, the Bletchingly Stakes provides a true sprinting test to horses hoping to kickstart their spring campaign with an early win. Worth a total of $150,000 prize money, the Bletchingly Stakes attracts a decent calibre of horses each year. Trainers use the Bletchingly Stakes to start an unfit or untried horse on their spring campaign or to get a black-type win while the majority of stables are resting their horses.

Horses that race in the Bletchingly Stakes often progress onto other events such as the PB Lawrence Stakes or the Memsie Stakes.

The 2016 Bletchingly Stakes will be held on July 30th, 2016.

Bletchingly Stakes History

Inaugurated in 1994, the Bletchingly Stakes was first won by Poetic King. The Bletchingly Stakes is the last group race of the minor Melbourne winter racing season.

The race was initially run over 1100m, up until the 2004 edition when it was first held over 1200m, the distance it remains today. Initially graded as a listed race, the Bletchingly Stakes was upgraded to Group 3 status in 1997, with Blazing Reality taking it out that year.

Notable Bletchingly Stakes winners include Poetic King (1994), Regal Roller (2005), Apache Cat (2007) and Let Go Thommo (2009). Bletchingly Stakes results since 2000 are listed below.
