The Hyperion Stakes is a key Perth Winter Racing Carnival event run at Belmont Racecourse each May.

Raced over a mile distance of 1600 metres, the Hyperion Stakes is open to horses aged two-years-old and above and is contested at weight-for-age conditions.

Offering $200,000 prize money as of 2021, the Hyperion Stakes is a lucrative stand-alone race and as such tends to attract a fairly impressive field of local gallopers that may have had a lead-up run in the Group 3 Belmont Sprint (1400m) over 200m shorter a fortnight before.

The Belmont Sprint – Hyperion Stakes double was recently achieved by the mare Wink And A Nod (2016), Material Man (2018) and Perfect Jewel (2020).

Many runners continue on after the Hyperion Stakes with another Belmont run in the Group 3 Strickland Stakes (2000m), which is another notable step-up in distance. Material Man (2018) managed to win all three events (Belmont Sprint, Hyperion Stakes, Strickland Stakes) over a gun winter carnival.

The following year the Hyperion Stakes winner Gatting went on to win the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes in Melbourne during the spring.

The 2023 Hyperion Stakes form was franked by the runner-up, Dom To Shoot, who returned in the summer running third in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) before winning the Group 1 Northerly Stakes (1800m) at Ascot.

The Hyperion Stakes also produced the 2023 Railway Stakes winner with Bustler improving on his third in the winter showdown to claim the Group 1 summer mile classic.

The 2024 Hyperion Stakes takes place on Saturday June 1st, 2024 at Belmont Racecourse in WA.
