Bobbie Lewis Quality 2019

Saturday September 14, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: The Bobbie Lewis is a nice lead-up to the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes in the spring

The Bobbie Lewis Quality is a Group 2 sprint held at Flemington Racecourse on Makybe Diva Stakes Day during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Run on a Saturday in early to mid-September each year, the quality handicap clash is open to horses aged four-years-old and above and is contested over 1200m.

The event is held at the same meeting as the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m), Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m). Offering $200,000 in total prize money, the Bobbie Lewis Quality is a good lead-up race into the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield later in September. The last galloper to complete the Bobbie Lewis Quality – Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes double was Bon Hoffa (2007).

The latest edition of the Bobbie Lewis Quality ran on Saturday September 14, 2019 and was won first-up by Zoutori.

Bobbie Lewis Quality Field

The Bobbie Lewis Quality field attracts a line-up of the spring’s top sprinters and middle-distance gallopers. Many come off earlier spring runs in Melbourne in lead-up races like the Group 3 The Heath 1100 (1100m) at Caulfield the previous month.

Another possible lead-up run is the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m) over the same track / distance a month before. In 2013 Temple Of Boom ran second in both the Aurie’s Star and the Bobbie Lewis Quality, he was also runner-up in the 2014 Bobbie Lewis Quality.

Runners out of the Bobbie Lewis Quality field often back-up in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes or are saved for the Group 2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) the next month back at Flemington.

In 2015 Under The Louvre ran second to Churchill Dancer in the Bobbie Lewis before a third in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes. The previous year Chautauqua won the Bobbie Lewis Quality – Gilgai Stakes double before a subsequent second in the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) that November.
