Which Horse Will Win The Strickland Stakes in 2022

The best way to pick which horse will win the Strickland Stakes in 2022 is to take into account their lead-up winter racing form, assess the barriers and consider the weights. 

Additional factors to consider when picking the Strickland Stakes winner include: 

  • Medium Length – Races at 2,000 metres are not common, so look for horses that are capable of breaking out of 1,800 metres, or who are willing to cut down from 2,200 metres.
  • Hot Leads – The Railway Stakes is going to be a good predictor for this race. Also consider the Belmont Sprint.
  • Mighty Mares – The mares have an outstanding recent record with four wins from 2014-2021 most recently with Naughty By Nature (2021).
