Belmont Newmarket, Belmont Parek

Run over 1,200 metres, the Belmont Newmarket is a Listed race taking place at Belmont Racecourse in Perth during August each year. With a $125,000 prize purse as of 2021, it attracts its share of Western Australian sprinters and is run as a handicap event. 

Some of the better short-distance gallopers out of the Belmont Newmarket race may head over to Sydney or Melbourne during the spring to target the bigger sprint events over the carnival season.

The Belmont Newmarket dates back to 1945 and the first two editions were won by Lord Treat.

It is the first Perth feature race of the new racing season each year.

Two trainers co-hold the record of three Belmont Newmarket wins with Colin Webster and Allan Taylor both preparing a hat-trick of winners in the event.

Paul Harvey boasts the jockey record in the Belmont Newmarket with an imposing seven wins.

Which Horse Will Win The Belmont Newmarket in 2022?

The best way to pick which horse will win the Belmont Newmarket in 2022 is to take into account their lead-up winter racing form, assess the barriers, and consider the weight each horse will carry. 

Other factors to consider when picking the Belmont Newmarket winner include:

  • Inside Draw –  Being a 1,200 metres in length, the inside track should give a slight advantage.
  • Local Lead-Ups – Horses out of the winter sprint races held at the track are worth considering with key lead-ups including the Listed Beaufine Stakes (1000m) and Listed H.G. Bolton Sprint (1200m) in June.
  • Age Factor – Four-year-olds boast the best record in the race.
