Key Facts

Only four horses (Luckygray 58kg in 2013, Sniper’s Bullet 56.5kg in 2009, El Presidente 55.5kg in 2007 & Better Loosen Up 55.5kg in 1989) have carried more than 55kg to victory in the Railway Stakes since 1983.


17 of the past 32 editions of the race have been won by four-year-olds, while only one three-year-old (Jungle Dawn 1987) was successful.


Only five mares have won this race in the last three decades, the most recent being Belle Bizarre in 2006.


The last horse to come out of the Emirates and win the Railway was Sniper’s Bullet in 2009. He finished sixth at Flemington, while this year The Cleaner was third. However, the last seven-year-old to win, the age of The Cleaner, was Willoughby in 1998.


Four of last five editions have been won by horses at $12 or better. Luckygray ($4 in 2011) was the last favourite to salute.


 In the past 32 editions, 10 favourites or equal favourites have been successful, with El Presidente (2007) and Better Loosen Up (1989) the shortest at $2.75 the shortest.


In the past 32 editions, 11 winners have come through the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes, the last of those being Belle Bizarre in 2006. The other important lead-up is the Group 3 R.J. Peters Stakes. Five winners have backed up from that, the latest being Gilded Venom in 2008.


Wide barriers don’t seem to be too much of a hindrance with 14 of the past 32 editions won by horses drawn in double digit gates and in that time three horses have won from the extreme outside starting stall (ironically all three were drawn 16/16).


Paul Harvey (Mr Moet) is having his 18th ride in the Railway. His record is; 17: 3-2-2. Shaun O’Donnell (Balmont Girl) has two wins and two seconds from 12 rides. Nash Rawiller (Moriarty) is hoping for his second victory at just his fifth ride in the event. William Pike (Elite Belle) is chasing his first success in this race after seven previous attempts. Brad Parnham (Respondent) is also chasing his first victory after six unsuccessful attempts.


Having won this race previously with Northerly in 2000, Fred Kersley (Ihtsahymn) is chasing his second success with his ninth runner. Adam Durant (Mr Moet, Chester Road & Ranger) can notch his second win in this event after saddling up five previous runners. Grant Williams (Elite Belle, Amorino & Respondent) is after his first victory after seven previous attempts.
