Looking for early info on this year’s Asian Beau Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.

Run over 1,400 metres, the Asian Beau Stakes is a Group 3 race taking place at Ascot Racecourse. With a $150,000 prize purse, it attracts some of Western Australia’s best sprinters and mid-distance runners.

The handicap clash is contested on the same day as Melbourne’s iconic Victoria Derby Day at Flemington.

Starting out as a Listed Race, this race was upgraded to Group 3 status in 1999.

This race serves as a decent lead up into the Group 1 Railway Stakes held back at the track over the Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

Five horses have completed the Asian Beau – Railway Stakes double throughout Perth racing history: Bold Extreme (1996), Willoughby (1998), El Presidente (2007), Galaxy Star (2018) and most recently Inspirational Girl (2020) who also ran second in that year’s Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m).
