Northerly Stakes

The 2016 Northerly Stakes is a Group 3 sprint held at Ascot Racecourse in October.



The 2016 Northerly Stakes is a Group 3 sprint held at Ascot Racecourse in Perth during October each year.

Raced over 1400m, the Northerly Stakes is a handicap event open to horses aged three years and older.

With prize money of $150,000, this is a fairly lucrative Group 3 event and tends to attract a field to match.

The Northerly Stakes is the headline event on the day, sharing the race schedule with only one other black type event, the Listed Belgravia Stakes (1200m), for three year olds under set weights plus penalties. The Caulfield Cup is held in Melbourne on the same day.

Because the Perth Spring Racing Carnival contains far fewer black-type events than its eastern counterparts, you’ll need to do some serious form study for the Northerly Stakes. Beyond the listed Birthday Stakes (1200m) held at Belmont two weeks before, there isn’t a lot of good form to follow in this race. Rather, the Northerly Stakes acts as a great lead up event to many of the major Perth events further down the track.

Horses who run well in the Northerly Stakes often target the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes (1400m) and the Group 3 RJ Peters Stakes (1500m), both held at Ascot during November.

The 2016 Northerly Stakes will be held on Saturday, October 15th, 2016.

2016 Northerly Stakes Field

The Northerly Stakes field is usually composed of local runners looking for a reintroduction to racing after a spell. Some horses might target the Northerly Stakes field as part of an ongoing western spring campaign, however classier runners often contest this first up. You’ll usually see a few of the summer’s better sprinters kick things off in the Northerly Stakes field.
