Fuchsia Bandana (2015) and Scales Of Justice (2016) are the latest gallopers to complete the double.

Strickland Stakes History
Originally hosted at Ascot, the Strickland Stakes moved to Belmont for a year in 2005, and the decision was made to host it there permanently from 2011 onwards. While at Ascot, the Strickland Stakes was ran over 1800m rather than the current 2000m. Inaugurated in 1901, the race celebrated its 100th anniversary at Ascot in 2001.
Notable Strickland Stakes winners include Perfect Answer (1988), Finito (2001, 2002) and Marasco (2009, 2010). In 2002, there was a dead heat between Gwalia Girl and Finito. The race was not held between 1942 and 1944 due to World War II, and adjustments to the racing calendar meant that there was no 1999 edition of the race.
Marasco and Tarzi made the exacta two years in a row; 2009 and 2010. Listed below are Strickland Stakes results since 2000.
