Quezette Stakes 2021

Saturday August 14, 2021

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 $200,000 in total prize money as of 2021.

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) – now run as the Empire Rose Stakes – beating the older mares over the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The latest edition of the Quezette Stakes took place on Saturday August 14, 2021 and was won by the resuming favourite Gimmie Par for Peter Moody.

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.

Gimmie Par ($2.70 in 2021) was the last filly leading Quezette Stakes betting to win for the punters.

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.

Top Quezette Stakes tips include looking for past winners over similar distance and class races, any fillies with winning form over the colts / geldings coming back against their own kind and Melbourne runners with ability that way of going.

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

2021 Quezette Stakes Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ exclusive betting tips on the Quezette Stakes 2021 will be listed below the week of the race.

  • To Win: #1 Arcaded ($7.50 at time of publish) 

Love the price on James Cummings’ class daughter of Street Boss, a Group 2 winner in the Blue Diamond Prelude at this track and distance last campaign. Eleventh in the Group 1 with excuses before heading to Sydney to win the Group 3 Magic Night Stakes. Returned with a first-up fifth here in April, but is back against her own kind and rates well.

Quezette Stakes Form Guide

The Quezette Stakes form guide is published at Ladbrokes once the field and betting markets go up on the Wednesday of race week.

In the form guide on the Quezette Stakes race punters will find all the information and statistics they need to know before placing a bet like the jockeys, trainers, barriers and track / distance form of the fillies in the race.

Over the years the race form has held up in other Group races during the spring carnival including back in 2011 when the third-placegetter Mosheen franked the form with a Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) win three starts later, a Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) second that October and a Melbourne Cup Carnival win the next month in the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m).

More recently Sunlight won the 2018 Quezette Stakes before three subsequent Melbourne Group 1 victories: the Coolmore Stud Stakes (2018),  Newmarket Handicap (2019) and William Reid Stakes (2019).
