|Track:||Ascot racecourse, Perth|
|Race Type:||Quality Handicap|
|2018 Winner:||Galaxy Star|
The Asian Beau Stakes is the first quality handicap of the racing season in Perth and suits more than handy types resuming or horses who are fit & in-form and can get in with a light weight to beat the handicapper.
Held on the same day as the Victoria Derby in Melbourne, competitors from the Asian Beau Stakes may decide to head on to upcoming handicap races such as the Gr3 Colonel Reeves or Gr3 RJ Peters Stakes later in the carnival at the same track.
Machino (2nd in 2012) went on to finish runner-up in the RJ Peters Stakes at his next start.
The Gr1 $1,000,000 Railway Stakes, held three weeks later at the same track, is another race that may be on the cards for horses contesting this race. Galaxy Star (2018) is the last galloper to win the Asian Beau Stakes & Railway Stakes double.
Generally speaking, the Asian Beau Stakes field typically attracts the best horses going around at the time.
Galaxy Star (2018) ran second on the Gr3 Northerly Stakes over 1400m at Ascot before scoring an easy victory in this event for the Grant & Alana Williams stable.
Recent Asian Beau Stakes winners include Pounamu (2017) and Heart Starter (2016).
