  • 3rd: #6 Brave Song



The Eskimo Prince Stakes is a Group 3 race run at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Breeders Classic Day during February as part of the early stages of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over 1200m the set weights plus penalties sprint is open only to three-year-old horses and offers $150,000 in total prize money. It is the key support race at the meeting that is headlined by the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m).

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) run a fortnight later 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 horse to do the Eskimo Prince Stakes – Hobartville Stakes double meanwhile was Man From Uncle (2017).

The Eskimo Prince Stakes 2018 ran on Saturday February 10, 2018 and was easily won by runaway champ Kementari for Godolphin.
