Ottawa Stakes

The Ottawa Stakes is a Group 3 set weights race for two-year-old fillies that takes place each year at Flemington racecourse during the Melbourne spring racing carnival in November. The race is run over a distance of 1000 metres and worth $200,000 in prize money. The 2019 Ottawa Stakes was won by Aryaaf from Muntaseera with Marchena third.

Taking place on the same day as our most famous race, the Group 1 Melbourne Cup, the Ottawa Stakes was upgraded to Group 3 status for the 2013/2014 racing season and has been run as the 'Emirates Airline Plate' in recent times.

Distance: 1000 metres

The Ottawa Stakes is a fillies only event run under set weight conditions that generally assembles a field of handy two-year-olds where the classier females have a clear advantage over their rivals due to the level weights playing field.

Run down the Flemington '1000m' straight course where every filly will get their chance in the run, the Ottawa Stakes can often be a minefield for punters and any fillies with proven straight track form are likely to run well again.

Bella Rosa (2018) debuted with a narrow victory in this event for the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace stable at Caulfield. Recent Ottawa Stakes winners include Setsuna (2017) and Invincible Star (2016).
