The 2019 Underwood Stakes
The Race: Scheduled four weeks before Caulfield Cup Week on the same day as the Rupert Clarke Stakes and usually on a Sunday to avoid the AFL Grand Final, can be an important lead up race for other events later in the Spring Carnival. Often a step on the way to the Cox Plate, winners include champions such as Phar Lap, Tobin Bronze, Tristarc, Octagonal, Jeune, Northerly & So You Think.
Lead Up Form: with this race moving to an earlier slot in the Carnival the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes has become a significant lead up for this event, as well as the Makybe Diva Stakes and Memsie Stakes.
Time: Track record for 1800m at Caulfield is 1:47.19 (Cent Home)
Track Bias, Barriers: Barriers are usually are little importance at the 1800m start, the only barrier not to have a lot of success in the race is barrier 1. Rail is usually in the True position so it should be possible to finish on late in the concluding stages.
Weight & Statistics: this WFA event is rarely won by a mare although they are usually suited at this weight scale, majority of winners are 4, 5 or 6 year old horses and geldings.
Date: September 2019
Conditions: Group 1 WFA
2018 Winner: Homesman
