2020 Winner: Chapel City

The RA Lee Stakes is an open race over 1600m and the set weights & penalty conditions suits the better performed gallopers in the race. It is a race predominantly tackled by local horses and generally assembles an average type field where more often than not the winner will go on to be simply a handy galloper, rather than anything special.

The long Morhpettville straight suits strong milers and the RA Lee Stakes will quite often attract any in-form Melbourne gallopers willing to make the trip over to Adelaide to take on the locals in this event.

After winning this race Linton (2013) travelled to Brisbane to win the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap over 1400m at Eagle Farm during the Brisbane winter racing carnival in Queensland.

Fastnet Tempest (2019) took out a Handicap race over 1410m at Flemington in Melbourne before travelling to Adealide to win this event in quality style for the David & Ben Hayes & Tom Dabernig stable.

Recent RA Lee Stakes winners include Land Of Plenty (2018) and Burning Front (2017).
