The 2017 Bow Mistress Trophy is a Group 3 contest held in the apple aisle of Tasmania at Hobart Racecourse each February. The race was only elevated to Group 3 status for the 2012 instalment after previously being run at listed level for $100,000.
It’s now worth a very healthy $120,000 over a 1200m trip during the Tasmanian summer racing carnival.
The Bow Mistress Trophy is specifically for fillies and mares and raced under weight for age conditions. It is raced on the Tasmanian Derby Day program a week out from the feature event Hobart Cup.
Thanks to its elevation the Bow Mistress Trophy is now the third Group 3 race hosted by Tasmania each year, the others being the Hobart and Launceston Cup’s.
A big part of the races appeal and subsequent upgrade has been the improved calibre of fillies and mares in the state combined with a series of horse which have been sent across from the mainland.
Lady Lynette is the latest horse to do this with success after beating the locals on their home track in 2011.
