The La Trice Classic is a Group 3 race for Fillies & Mares that takes place on New Year's Day each year at Ascot racecourse in Perth, Western Australia. The race is run over a distance of 1800 metres under set weight & penalty conditions and is worth $150,000 in prizemoney. The 2019 La Trice Classic was won by Celebrity Dream from Fontainebleau with Mouquet third.
Held during the Perth summer racing carnival, the La Trice Classic was upgraded to a Group 3 event for the 2014/2015 racing season and is held on the same day as the feature distance event of the summer, the Gr2 Perth Cup.

The La Trice Classic is a race for fillies & mares only over the middle distance of 1800m and suits those females that may have tackled races like the Gr3 WA Champion Fillies Stakes or any mares only events earlier in the carnival.
A race like the Listed Startstruck Classic is a good guide to this race and Cosmic Storm (2016 Dec) is the last filly to win the Starstruck Classic and La Trice Classic double.
After winning this race, classy galloper Elite Belle (2014) went on to win the Gr3 Prince Of Wakes Stakes & Gr1 Railway Stakes during the Perth summer racing carnival in November. She also ran third in the Gr1 Kingston Town Classic following her Railway victory.
Celebrity Dream (2019) ran fourth in the Listed Starstruck Classic over 1600m at Ascot before scoring a comfortable victory in this event for trainer Adam Durant.
Recent La Trice Classic winners include I'm Feeling Lucky (2018) and Cosmic Storm (2016 Dec).
