The Group 1 2018 Winterbottom Stakes is an exciting 1200m sprint held in late November or early December annually at the scenic Ascot Racecourse in Perth. Run under weight-for-age conditions, the contenders aged three-years-old and up compete for the lucrative prize purse of $1 million. The event is conducted on Day 2 of the major Perth Summer Racing Carnival in Western Australia, which also features the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) the weekend before and the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) the following Saturday.

As the premier sprint event in Perth, entries are generally handy local sprinters and the Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1200m) at the same track and distance a fortnight earlier is a key lead-up.

With the race growing in prize money and prestige, interstate raiders are more commonly making the trip over to WA to take on the locals in the Winterbottom Stakes field with Flemington races producing five of the Winterbottom Stakes winners from 2011-2017 most recently Viddora (2017) who improved on a lead-up fourth in the Group 1 Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.

Runners that do well in the Winterbottom Stakes may stay on for other weight-for-age events in Perth including the Group 3 AJ Sachill Stakes (1400m) a fortnight later.

The 2018 Winterbottom Stakes ran on Saturday December 1, 2018 .

Winterbottom Stakes History

The Winterbottom Stakes began as a principal race run over seven furlongs and was first run in 1952 when Raconteur claimed victory. In 1973 the race distance was converted to 1400m and the event gained Group 2 status in 1979. The length was decreased to its current 1200m sprint distance in 1993.

A number of high quality horses have claimed victory in the Winterbottom Stakes including Buffering (2013 & 2015), Ortensia (2009-11), Takeover Target (2008) and Miss Andretti (2005).

Since 2011 the Winterbottom Stakes has run as a Group 1 feature, having achieved elite level status.
