The Hyperion Stakes is a key Perth Winter Racing Carnival event run at Belmont Racecourse each June. Raced over a mile distance of 1600 metres, the Hyperion Stakes is open to horses aged two-years-old and above and is contested at weight-for-age conditions.

Offering $150,000 prize money, the Hyperion Stakes is a lucrative stand-alone race and as such tends to attract a fairly impressive field of local gallopers that may have had a lead-up run in the Group 3 Belmont Sprint (1400m) over 200m shorter a fortnight before. The Belmont Sprint – Hyperion Stakes double was last achieved by the mare Wink And A Nod (2016).

Many runners continue on after the Hyperion Stakes with another Belmont run in the Group 3 Strickland Stakes (2000m), which is another notable step-up in distance.

The 2017 Hyperion Stakes took place on June 17, 2017.
