Ladbrokes Tip: Quezette Stakes fillies often go on to run top three in Group 2 company later in the spring
The Quezette Stakes is a Group 3 race for three-year-old fillies held in mid-August during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival on PB Lawrence Stakes Day at Caulfield Racecourse. The meeting is headlined by the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) but also holds two Group 3 races with the Vain Stakes and this race in particular, both run over 1100m and offering $160,000 in total prize money.
A set weights plus penalties race, the Quezette Stakes is a good early carnival lead-up for smart fillies looking to progress onto races like the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington. Sunlight (2018) was the last filly to complete the Quezette Stakes – Coolmore Stud Stakes double.
Alternatively, fillies out of the Quezette Stakes race may step out over more distance as their campaigns progress targeting events like the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m). The 2016 Quezette Stakes winner I Am A Star went on to run second in the Thousand Guineas before also winning the then Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) beating the older mares over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
The next edition of the Quezette Stakes is scheduled for Saturday August 17, 2019 .

Quezette Stakes Betting
Quezette Stakes betting markets are usually led by promising fillies having their first run as a three-year-old with proven form when fresh.
Any progressive three-year-olds coming off an earlier non-Black Type win in Melbourne also sit high up the Quezette Stakes odds, as do proven stakes performers from last time in. Single-figure fancies in the Quezette Stakes betting markets have a dominant recent record so backing the fillies under $10 for the win is a good bet.
The bookies release odds on the Quezette Stakes shortly after final acceptances and barriers are out the Wednesday before the race runs on the Saturday.

Quezette Stakes Field
The Quezette Stakes field attracts a line-up of smart young fillies, many kicking off their Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaigns. Fillies in the Quezette Stakes field may come off a lead-up run at the start of the month at a venue like Moonee Valley Racecourse, or be having their first start of the new season.
A second-up run the following month at Flemington in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) is often on the cards for fillies, a race the 2013 winner Kiss A Rose placed second in next start.
An easier next start option may fillies go on to contest is the Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m) at Flemington on the same day as the Danehill Stakes. In 2015 Sabatini ran third in the Cap D’Antibes next start, while the year before Chloe In Paris ran third in the Quezette and second in the Flemington Listed race.
Graduates out of the autumn’s premier races for two-year-olds like the Blue Diamond Stakes at the Caulfield track often back-up in the Quezette Stakes as three-year-olds in the spring.
Race nominations close the Monday of race week followed by the final field and barrier draw out on the Wednesday before PB Lawrence Stakes Day on the Saturday.

Single-figure fancies also have a top record so taking fillies under $10 in the markets is also a good Quezette Stakes betting tip.
