2017 WILLIAM REID STAKES - RACE HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

The William Reid Stakes is a Group 1 race for Open Class horses conducted by the Moonee Valley Racing Club at Moonee Valley.

The William Reid Stakes was first run in 1925 and was won by The Night Patrol. That horse would win it again a year later.

The William Reid Stakes is run over 1200m under Standard Weight For Age conditions.

The race is registered as the William Reid Stakes but was re-named the Australia Stakes for several runnings for returning to its old name in 2010.

It is the final G1 of the Victorian Autumn and most of the runners come via the Triple Crown of sprints being the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes, Oakleigh Plate and Newmarket Handicap.

Probably the race’s greatest historical note is that the legendary Manikato won it five straight times from 1979 to 1983.

Other notable winners include Heroic, Gothic, Waltzing Lily, Tranquil Star, Comic Court, Flying Halo, Winfreux, Dual Choice, All Shot, Toy Show, Family Of Man, Campaign King, Vo Rogue, Zeditave, Hareeba, Cape Of Good Hope, Miss Andretti, Apache Cat and Black Caviar.

The 2016 William Reid Stakes was won by Flamberge for Peter Moody from Holler with Japonisme third.
