The Colonel Reeves Stakes is a Group 3 quality handicap race held each November at Ascot racecourse in Perth, Western Australia during the Perth summer racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1100 metres and worth $125,000 in prizemoney. The 2012 Colonel Reeves Stakes was won by Barakey from Werd with Waratah's Secret third.
The Colonel Reeves Stakes is a quality handicap that suits horses coming from the Gr3 Asian Beau Stakes earlier in the carnival and might be heading towards races such as the Gr1 Railway Stakes or Gr1 Winterbottom Stakes on the Festival of Perth Racing's Super Saturday at Ascot.
Outstanding sprinter Barakey (2012) went on to score a memorable win in the Winterbottom Stakes after tasting success in this event.
A field of predominantly local sprinters generally assembles for the Colonel Reeves Stakes and horses who are fit & in-form typically come to the fore. Interestingly enough, outstanding galloper Hay List ran unplaced in this race in 2009 as an odds-on favourite.
Barakey (2012) won an open handicap event over 1000m at Belmont before winning this race and recent Colonel Reeves Stakes winners have been Avante (2011) and Ma Ma Machine (2010).
