The 2015 Lee Steere Classic is a Group 3 event held during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

Held at Perth’s premier racing venue, Ascot Racecourse, the Lee Steere Classic is a fantastic 1400m race for three years olds, run under set weights.

Worth $150,000, this is a lucrative race that is often targeted by some of Western Australia’s classier three year olds.

Held on Kingston Town Classic Day, the Lee Steere Classic shares a race program with five other black-type events. These include the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m), Group 3 AJ Scahill Stakes (1400m), Listed Aquanita Stakes (1800m), Listed GA Towton Cup (2200m) and Listed Jungle Dawn Classic (1400m).

Most of the young horses which contest the Lee Steere Classic have already had a few starts during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival. The Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m) is a relatively popular lead up race, with quite a few horses appearing in the results for both events in recent years.

Following their run in the Lee Steere Classic, many horses head to the paddock for a spell before Autumn and Winter.

The 2015 Lee Steere Classic will be run on December 5th.

2015 Lee Steere Classic Field

The Lee Steere Classic field is usually comprised of a selection of fairly handy local three year olds. The majority of the Lee Steere Classic field is drawn from local stables, as there is no real reason for eastern horses to make the journey to Perth except for Group 1 events.

Lee Steere Classic History

The Lee Steere Classic was inaugurated in 1983 and has since grown into one of Ascot’s most important races for three year olds.

It is named in remembrance of Ernest Henry Lee-Steere, a well known businessman and veteran who chaired the Western Australian Turn Club for over two decades, between 1963 and 1984.

Between 1983 and 1985 the Lee Steere Classic was a listed event, receiving an upgrade to Group 3 status in 1986. It has held that status ever since.

Usually held at Ascot, for a year in 2003 the Lee Steere Classic was hosted at Belmont Park Racecourse.

Notable Lee Steere Classic winners include Corona Miss (1983), Placid Ark (1987), Discussion (1994), Stormy Nova (2005) and Petrol Power (2013). Lee Steere Classic results, place getters and winning times since 2000 are provided below.
