2018 Hyperion Stakes info

Date: Saturday 16th June 2018

Distance: 1600 metres
Race Type: Weight-for-age
Status: Group 3
Prizemoney: $150,000
2017 Winner: Scales Of Justice

The Hyperion Stakes is a weight-for-age race that usually attracts the better local sprinters running around at the time and occasionally an interstate galloper may make the trek over to Perth to compete. The level weight conditions of the race suits the better class gallopers engaged and the Gr3 Belmont Sprint is the ideal lead-up race. Scales of Justice (2017), Fuchsia Bandana (2015) and Elite Belle (2014) have all managed to win the Belmont Sprint & Hyperion Stakes double in recent times.

The race has been taken out by some above average gallopers over the years and horses contesting this race may go on and tackle the weight-for-age Gr3 Strickland Stakes over 2000m the following month. Scales of Justice (2017) is the last galloper to win the Hyperion Stakes & Strickland Stakes double, with Dedicated Miss (2004) prior to that. Kincaple (7th in 2013) managed to claim the Strickland Stakes at his next start.

Smart galloper Luckygray (2012) took out the Roma Cup, Belmont Sprint & Hyperion Stakes treble during a very successful 2012 Perth carnival.

Scales of Justice (2017) took out the Belmont Sprint over 1400m at Belmont before winning this event and recent Hyperion Stakes winners include Wink And A Nod (2016) and Fuchsia Bandana (2015).
