Looking for early info on the Winterbottom Stakes? The expert tipsters at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
Known as Western Australia’s premier sprinting distance race meet, The Winterbottom Stakes sees a lot of action from East Coast stables.
If you’re looking for a good lead in race, then look no further than short distance races occuring in WA in the weeks prior. Such races would include the 1200 metre Prince of Wales Stakes and the 1100 metre Colonel Reeves Stakes. Keep your eyes peeled for any winners or place getters in the 1600 metre Railway Stakes, they have been known to adapt well to the shorter distance and in many cases win the double.
