Strickland Stakes 2021

Saturday June 26th, 2021

Ladbrokes Tip: Strickland Stakes serves as a key follow-up for horses out of they Hyperion Stakes

First contested in 1901, the time-honoured Strickland Stakes is a Group 3 ace held in late June during the Perth Winter Racing Carnival. Contested at Belmont Racecourse – which is the other key Perth track outside of Ascot – the event is contested over 2000m and offers a total of  $200,000 in prize money.

The weight-for-age race has been contested during a host of varying times including starting out as a summer racing event, but has held it’s current June positioning since 2011 when also increased from 1800m to 2000m.

It serves as a nice next-up options for graduates out of the Group 3 Belmont Sprint (1400m) and Group 3 Hyperion Stakes (1600m). Fuchsia Bandana (2015), Scales Of Justice (2016) and Material Man (2018) are the latest horses to complete the Hyperion Stakes – Strickland Stakes double. Material Man also won that season’s Belmont Sprint completing a rare treble. Material Man also returned to become a dual Strickland Stakes winner on non-successive years with his 2000 success.

Many top Perth horses have won the Strickland Stakes over the years including in recent times Mr Moet (2012), Scales Of Justice (2017) and Galaxy Star (2019).

The latest edition of the Strickland Stakes ran on Saturday June 26th, 2021 and was won by in-form mare Naughty By Nature.

Strickland Stakes Betting

The Strickland Stakes betting odds are usually led by the season’s top performing Perth horses, especially in-form mares as the female gallopers have a strong recent record in the event with wins by the likes of Fancy Feet (2014), Fuchsia Bandana (2015), Galaxy Star (2019) and Naughty By Nature (2021).

Proven form in the traditional Perth lead-up races is good, especially those coming off a Group 3 Hyperion Stakes run over 200m shorter a fortnight prior. Material Man (11th in 2020) for his second was the last Strickland Stakes winner to come out of the Hyperion Stakes, having also done the double back in 2018.

Favourites in Strickland Stakes markets have an imposing recent strike-rate rate especially odds-on favourites with the likes of Scales Of Justice (2017), Material Man (2018) and Galaxy Star (2019) all jumping under $2 in betting.

The aforementioned mare Galaxy Star ($1.50 in 2019) was the last favourite in Strickland Stakes betting to salute for the punters.

The Ladbrokes’ insider Strickland Stakes 2021 betting tips and Belmont race selections on the June showdown will be detailed right here the week of the race so stay tuned for the top runners to back for a win in the Group 3.

  • To Win: #10 Naughty By Nature ($8 at time of publish)

Rise in class for this Trade Fair mare but she’s in a rich vein of form and is a genuine Belmont track specialist (4:2-1-0). Jason Miller’s gun four-year-old was good with more weight over the mile here last start and is out to extend her form over further. Longest win to date is over 1700m, but she looks to be going good enough for the 2000m and is more than up to this at a nice price.
