2020 Winner: Perfect Jewel

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.

Any fillies looking for further may head on the Gr3 WA Oaks in March, and the better ones may even decide to tackle the Gr2 WATC Derby a couple of weeks later in April.

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 & Group 1 Railway Stakes during the Perth summer racing carnival in November. She also ran third in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic following her Railway victory.

Perfect Jewel (2020) finished unplaced in the Listed Starstruck Stakes over 1600m at Ascot before scoring a stylish victory in this event for Karnup trainer Adam Durant.

Recent La Trice Classic winners include Celebrity Dream (2019) and I'm Feeling Lucky (2018).
