The Karrakatta Plate is the premier two year old event in Western Australia and is a feature race of Perth Autumn Racing Carnival.

Held at Ascot Racecourse in late March or early April, the 1200m sprint is a Group 2 race which is worth half a million dollars in prize money. As a set weights race, colts and geldings must carry 56.0kg while fillies must carry 54.0kg. Many youngsters will use this race to prepare for the Group 3 Sires Produce Stakes over 1400m in a few weeks time.

The Karrakatta Plate – WA Sires’ Produce Stakes double was last completed by Whispering Brook (2016).

The Karrakatta Plate 2019 ran on Saturday April 13, 2019 Ascot Racecourse and was won by the Simon Miller-trained Valour Road.
