The Bobbie Lewis Quality is a Group 2 sprint race held down the famous Flemington ‘Straight Six’, the 1200m dash contested under quality handicap conditions by horses aged four-years-old and above as part of the Makybe Diva Stakes Day card.

Held in mid-September each Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the Bobbie Lewis Quality has held Group 2 status since 2015, now offers $300,000 and serves as a nice lead-up to the Group 1 spring sprint races including the Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

In 2022 the mare Roch ‘N’ Horse improved on her second in the Bobbie Lewis Quality to continue on and win the VRC Sprint Classic, run that year as the Champions Sprint, while the Bobbie Lewis winner Baller ran third in the Group 1.

WHICH HORSE WILL WIN THE Bobbie Lewis Quality IN 2023

The best way to pick which horse will win the Bobbie Lewis Quality in 2023 is to take into account their lead-up spring racing form, assess the barriers, and consider the weight each horse will carry.

Additional factors to consider when picking the Bobbie Lewis Quality winner include:

  • Straight Six – Watching for horses with a proven record down the iconic Flemington ‘Straight Six’ track can be key.
  • First-Up – Many spring sprinters kick off their campaigns in the race so looking for proven fresh performers often pays. Star Patrol in 2023 was the last first-up Bobbie Lewis Quality winner.
