The Bobbie Lewis Quality is a good class sprint race for this time of the year and most of the time assembles a field of more than handy sprinters. It's run down the Flemington 'Straight Six' 1200m course and typically suits horses with an affinity for the straight track.

The race has been won by some quality types over the years including Swift Alliance (2009), Titanic Jack (2003), La Zagaletta (1999), Hareeba (1994) and the brilliant Placid Ark(1988).

Horses contesting the Bobbie Lewis Quality may go on to a race like the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield later in the month, just as Toorak Toff (5th in 2011) did, winning the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes after running fifth in this race.

Zoutori (2019) resumed from a Queensland campaign to win this event in impressive fashion for Flemington based training duo Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra.

Recent Bobbie Lewis Quality winners include Dothraki (2018) and Redkirk Warrior (2017).
