The Eskimo Prince Stakes is a handicap race for three-year-olds over the sprint trip of 1200m that tends to attract more hand handy types on their way to the better autumn races ahead.

In recent times the Eskimo Prince Stakes has proven an excellent guide to multiple group race winners around the country.

Dissident (2nd in 2014) travelled to Melbourne to run third in the Gr3 Blue Diamond Prelude (C) at Caulfield before graduating to Group 1 winner as a four-year-old the following spring, while Romantic Touch (3rd in 2014) headed to Queensland for the winter to capture the Gr1 The TJ Smith at Eagle Farm.

The previous year Ichihara (2013) ran second in the Gr2 Light Fingers Stakes at Randwick and Limes (3rd in 2013) went on to win the Gr3 Hawkesbury Guineas at Hawkesbury.

Prior to that, Nobby Snip (2012) finished runner-up in the Gr1 The Galaxy at Randwick, Niagara (2nd in 2012) claimed the Gr2 Ajax Stakes at Rosehill, while Aerobatics (3rd in 2012) ran second in the Gr3 PJ Bell Stakes at Randwick.

It may pay to keep an eye on the next running of the Eskimo Prince Stakes with an eye to future group winners.

Kementari (2018) resumed from a spring spell to win this race in stylish fashion and recent Eskimo Prince Stakes winners include Man From Uncle (2017) and Spill The Beans (2016).
