AJ Scahill Stakes

The AJ Scahill Stakes is a Group 3 weight-for-age race held annually each December at Ascot racecourse in Perth, Western Australia during the Perth summer racing carnival. The race is run over a distance of 1400 metres and worth $250,000 in prize money. The 2019 AJ Scahill Stakes was won by The Celt from Valour Road with Abdicator third.

Held alongside the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic, the AJ Scahill Stakes is the last weight-for-age sprint event of the Perth summer carnival.

Date: Saturday 4th December 2021
Track: Ascot racecourse, Perth
Distance: 1400 metres
Race Type: Weight-for-age
Status: Group 3
Prize Money: $250,000
2019 Winner: The Celt

The AJ Scahill Stakes is raced under weight-for-age conditions and suits those horses who may have previously contested races like the Gr2 Lee Steere Stakes or Gr2 Winterbottom Stakes that are raced under the same weighted conditions. The Gr2 RJ Peters Stakes is another possible lead up race for horses considering tackling this event.

Tarzi (2007) ran second in the Lee Steere Stakes, then ran unplaced in the Railway Stakes before winning this race that year, while Takeover Target (2008) won the Winterbottom Stakes before scoring in this event.

Any gallopers who contested the earlier weight-for-age sprint races during the carnival will consider lining up in this race and any of them who have performed well under weight-for-age conditions previously can be relied upon to do much the same again.

Arcadia Prince (2018) captured a BM72+ race over 1400m at Ascot before stepping up to group winner in quality style for trainer Adam Durant.

Recent AJ Scahill winners include Silverstream (2017) and Vega Magic (2016).
