Railway Stakes History

One of Perth's oldest and most pretigeous races, the Railway Stakes is steeped in history.

First run in 1887 the Railway Stakes is the headline event of Super Saturday at Ascot, which includes a number of listed races.

The race matches up with the Kingston Town Classic, which is run two weeks later. Four horses in history have claimed the double including hall of famer Betting Loosen Up and Sniper's Bullet.

Today the Railway Stakes is worth $1 million and is run as part of the one-of-a-kind Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

Railway Stakes Form Guide

The Railway Stakes form guide is all about following the strongest milers from the west of the country.

There's plenty of strong middle distance runners that have taken this event out before going on to compete in the east of the country. Scales Of Justice took out the 2016 Railway before heading across to Victoria to claim the 2019 Makybe Diva Stakes.

This race lends itself more to what's to come rather than being the peak of a horse's career.
