William Reid Stakes

William Reid Stakes, Moonee Valley

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

Run over 1,200 metres each Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival, the Group 1 William Reid Stakes is a popular weight-for-age sprint feature run under the lights on a Friday evening at The Valley in March. 

Flemington’s Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) makes a nice lead-up into the William Reid Stakes – now worth $1 million in total prize money – and Sunlight (2019) was the last to do the double. 

Plenty of quality sprinters have won the William Reid Stakes since the race was first run in 1925 including five-time hero Manikato (1979-83) and undefeated star Black Caviar (2011 and 2013).
