The 2019 Rupert Clarke Stakes
The Race:. Scheduled four weeks before Caulfield Cup Week on the same day as the Underwood Stakes, can be an important lead up race for other events later in the Spring Carnival. Mannerism (1992) was the last horse to win this race and go on to win the Caulfield Cup in the same year. Some runners in this race will go on to contest the Toorak Hcp October.
Time: Track record for the 1400m at Caulfield is 1:21.20 (Exceed And Excel).
Lead Up Form: Runners from The Bobbie Lewis and Let's Elope Stakes have produced the most number of winners in this event, other races of interest are the Memsie Stakes & Makybe Diva Stakes.
Track Bias, Barriers: The race starts in a short chute at the back of the track which leads straight into a corner. An inside draw is usually preferred at the 1400m start here although if the rail is in the True position (as it usually is for this meeting) a smart ride to position the horse near the lead can overcome the disadvantage of a wide draw.
Weight & Statistics: Run under handicap conditions, mares have a moderate record in this race but the majority of winners are male horses aged 3 - 5. The horses that have won this race as a 3yo have usually gone on to substantial racing careers.
