Herbert Power Stakes

The 2016 Herbert Power Stakes, which was known as the Winning Edge Presentation Stakes in 2009, is a Group 2 Quality Handicap, held annually at Caulfield Racecourse as part of the Melbourne Spring Carnival. Conducted over a distance of 2,400 metres and awarding a purse of $400,000, the Herbert Power Stakes is one of the richer races hosted at Caulfield.

The 2016 Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes will be held on October 8th. What makes the Herbert Power Stakes one of the most anticipated races on the Australian Racing calendar is its function as a qualifying race for the Melbourne Cup. Hosted in early October, about three weeks before the running of the iconic Melbourne Cup, the Herbert Power Stakes gives hopeful equine athletes a chance to pave their way to starting in the biggest race of the Australian season.
