Bobbie Lewis Quality

The 2018 Bobbie Lewis Quality is a Group 2 race that is run at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne during September each year. Run over a distance of 1,200 metres, the Bobbie Lewis Quality is worth $200,000 in prize money and is run under quality handicap conditions.

Run as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the Bobbie Lewis Quality is run on the same day as the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m), Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m).

The first Bobbie Lewis Quality was run in 1988 when it was won by a horse named Placid Ark. Horses that run in the Bobbie Lewis Quality have often come via races such as the Aurie’s Star Handicap on the first day of the Melbourne Spring Carnival in August.

Horses that run well in the Bobbie Lewis Quality often go on to run well in races such as the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes, Group 1 Toorak Handicap or the Group 1 Emirates Stakes.

Notable winners of the Bobbie Lewis Quality include Hareeba (1994), Scenic Peak (2001), Swift Alliance (2009) and Doubtful Jack (200).
