2020 Eskimo Prince Stakes Results

The 2020 Eskimo Prince Stakes has been cancelled due to a washed out Warwick Farm meeting. The race has not been rescheduled.



Update: The 2020 Eskimo Prince Stakes has been abandoned with the Warwick Farm race program for Saturday cancelled due to heavy rainfall and the state of the track. The $2 million Inglis Millennium has been rescheduled for Wednesday, while Racing NSW stewards opted not to run this year’s Eskimo Prince Stakes 

The Eskimo Prince Stakes is a Group 3 race run at Warwick Farm Racecourse in early February  as a lead-up to the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over 1200m the set weights plus penalties sprint is open only to three-year-old horses and offers $160,000 in total prize money. It is the key support race at the meeting that is headlined by the Restricted Listed $2 million Inglis Millennium race for two-year-old Inglis graduates.

The Eskimo Prince Stakes may be the campaign starting point for the up-and-comers in the field. A good next-up target for horses coming out of the Eskimo Prince Stakes field is the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens. In 2016 Le Romain ran second in both the Eskimo Prince Stakes and Hobartville Stakes before his Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) win that March.

The last horses to do the Eskimo Prince Stakes – Hobartville Stakes double meanwhile were Man From Uncle (2017) followed the next year by Kementari (2018) who also went on to win the Randwick Guineas.

The Eskimo Prince Stakes 2020 was set to run on Saturday February 8, 2020 but was cancelled due to the abandoned Warwick Farm meeting.

Eskimo Prince Stakes History

The Eskimo Prince Stakes has been run since its inception in 1984 and the inaugural winner was Run Ashore. Since then a host of notable youngsters have won the race including Spark Of Life (2004), Snippetson (2005), El Roca (2014), Scissor Kick (2015) and Kementari (2018).

The race has been hosted at a number of various Sydney racecourses including Canterbury Park, Rosehill Gardens and Randwick Racecourse where the event returned in 2016 for the first time since 2012. It now runs at Sydney’s Warwick Farm track. It started as a Listed race before gaining its current Group 3 status from 2014. It has been run over a number of distances based on the race track.

There was no 2020 Eskimo Prince Stakes due to a washed out Warwick Farm meeting with the race cancelled and not rescheduled.
