La Trice Classic History

The La Trice Classic was first contested in 2003 and won by Fortune Streak. Since then some nice types have taken out the summer showdown including Belle Bizarre (2006), Impressive Jeuney (2009) and Elite Belle (2014).

The event started as a Listed race before gaining its current Group 3 status in 2014. It has been held as part of the Perth Cup Day card since 2011. The race was not run in 2012 and two 2008 editions of the La Trice Classic took place, one in December and one in January. There are also two 2016 editions of the La Trice Classic (January & December), leading to no 2017 running with the next edition taking place in January of 2018.
