2018 Winner: I'm Feeling Lucky

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 & 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.

I'm Feeling Lucky (2018) finished sixth in the Starstruck Classic over 1600m at Ascot before showing her rivals a clean pair of heels in this event and recent La Trice Classic winners include Cosmic Storm (2016 Dec) and Ideal Image (2016 Jan).
