The 2016 Strickland Stakes is a Group 3 race held during late June or early July each year at Belmont Racecourse in Perth. Run under weight for age conditions over a distance of 2000m, the Strickland Stakes is an exciting middle distance race that attracts considerable attention from local gallopers. Paying a total of $150,000, the Strickland Stakes is a lucrative race for the winner, and pays well for the time of year its hosted.

Trainers often nominate their horses in the Strickland Stakes following acceptable performances in the Group 3 Hyperion Stakes (1600m) held at Belmont a month previously under the same race conditions.

While very few eastern horses enter the Strickland Stakes, the field is predominantly local. As the race grows in prize money and develops its prestige, more eastern trainers may be tempted to take horses over.

The 2016 Strickland Stakes will be run on June 25th.

Strickland Stakes History

Originally hosted at Ascot, the Strickland Stakes moved to Belmont for a year in 2005, and the decision was made to host it there permanently from 2011 onwards. While at Ascot, the Strickland Stakes was ran over 1800m rather than the current 2000m. Inaugurated in 1901, the race celebrated its 100th anniversary at Ascot in 2001.

Notable Strickland Stakes winners include Perfect Answer (1988), Finito (2001, 2002) and Marasco (2009, 2010). In 2002, there was a dead heat between Gwalia Girl and Finito. The race was not held between 1942 and 1944 due to World War II, and adjustments to the racing calendar meant that there was no 1999 edition of the race.

Marasco and Tarzi made the exacta two years in a row; 2009 and 2010. Listed below are Strickland Stakes results since 2000.
