Crown Witness Beats Catchy In Quezette Stakes

Crown Witness has lowered the colours of Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes winner Catchy; completely a perfectly-timed run to hold on and win in the Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield this afternoon. Crown Witness jumped from the barriers well in the Quezette Stakes and took an ideal position in transit just behind the pace…

The 2017 Quezette Stakes is a Group 3 race for three-year-old fillies run at Caulfield Racecourse in mid-August.

The Quezette Stakes field is restricted to three year old fillies, the majority of which are kicking off their Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaigns. Run under set weights with penalties, the Quezette Stakes gives punters a nice early guide to tougher upcoming race for the young fillies including the $1 million Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) in October.

The Quezette Stakes draws many nice young fillies, some with Group 1 form from their two-year-old seasons in races like the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) held at Caulfield each February. Offering $150,000 in total prize money the race is a good early kick-off for fillies chasing Black-Type as three-year-olds.

The Quezette Stakes is run on P.B. Lawrence Stakes Day alongside the weight-for-age Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) and the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m). The Vain Stakes is essentially the colts and geldings counterpart to the Quezette Stakes, run under the same conditions across the same distance for the same prize money.

Following success in the Quezette Stakes, some fillies might go on to race in the HDF McNeil Stakes or the Thousand Guineas Prelude.

The Quezette Stakes 2017 will be run on August 19th .

Quezette Stakes History

The Quezette Stakes was inaugurated in 1994 and initially held Listed status. In 2013, the race was upgraded to Group 3. First held over 1200m, the Quezette Stakes was shortened to 1100m for the 2006 edition and has remained at that distance soon.

Sandown Park hosted the Quezette Stakes for its first three years, then it was held at Caulfield for a year. Between 1998 and 2001 the race returned to Sandown Park. Since 2002, Caulfield Racecourse has hosted the Quezette Stakes.

Notable Quezette Stakes winners include Ascorbic (1996), La Lagune (2001) and Alinghi (2004).
