Saturday December 21, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: The Ted Van Heemst Stakes is a key lead-up to the Perth Cup each summer

The C.B. Cox Stakes – now known as the Ted Van Heemst Stakes – is one of the key races of the annual Perth Summer Racing Carnival and takes place at Ascot Racecourse on a Saturday in late December.

Run a fortnight later after the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m), the Group 2 Ted Van Heemst Stakes is contested at weight-for-age over 2100m and offers $250,000 in total prize money. It is the sole Group race on the Perth race card at the summer meeting and is supported by the $100,000 Listed Starstruck Classic (1600m) for local milers.

The Kingston Town Classic – Ted Van Heemst Stakes double was most recently completed by Pounamu (2017).

The Ted Van Heemst Stakes makes a good lead-up to the Group 2 $400,000 Perth Cup (2400m) back at the track in late December or early January and the double was last completed by Delicacy (2015-16).

The latest edition of the Ted Van Heemst Stakes ran on Saturday December 21, 2019 and was won by the odds-on favourite Regal Power.
