The Group 2 WH Stocks Stakes is early on during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Taking place in late September at Moonee Valley on Moir Stakes Night, the WH Stocks is a 1600m middle distance event. Worth $200,000 in prize money it is for mares aged four-years-old and above, and is run under weight-for-age conditions.

Other races solely for mares held earlier in the carnival are the Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) and the Group 2 Lets Elope Stakes (1400m), and a few runners may have previously contested these shorter distanced events.

The Stocks Stakes is an excellent lead up to events like the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) at Flemington and the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) on Caulfield Cup day in October.

The race usually attracts a field of handy mares and quality winners include Tuesday Joy (2008), Atlantic Jewel (2013) who ran second in that year’s Underwood Stakes before success in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) and Dear Demi (2014).

The WH Stocks Stakes 2020 takes place under the lights at Moonee Valley on Friday September 25, 2020.

WH Stocks Stakes History

The inaugural race in 1973 was won by Mellition. It began as a principal race run over 1600m and then became a listed event in 1979. Over a decade later it was elevated to Group 3 status before finally becoming a Group 2 event in 2005. For the first seven years, the race was known as the Dallas Handicap. Then from 1980 onwards it became the W H Stocks Stakes.

Notable winners of the Stocks Stakes include Mellition (1973), Digger’s Lass (1985), Gold Lottey (2002), Atlantic Jewel (2013) and I Am A Star (2017-18). Stocks Stakes results and winning times since 2000 are provided below.
