The 2017 PB Lawrence Stakes, formerly the JJ Liston Stakes, is a Group 2 race held in August at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne and is run at the same time each year during the Melbourne Spring Carnival. The Group 2 weight-for-age event is contested over 1400m and worth $200,000 in prize money.

The PB Lawrence Stakes usually has quite a few entries coming into the race from the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes a fortnight earlier which is run under the same conditions on the same track except over 1200m instead of 1400m.

The PB Lawrence is also a great starting point for many Spring Carnival contenders aimed at a weight for age campaign as well as horses heading towards the major staying races over the Carnival which may include the Group 1 Caulfield Cup at Caulfield and the Group 1 Melbourne Cup at Flemington.

From the PB Lawrence Stakes some runners may choose to contest the Group 2 Memsie Stakes over the same distance at Caulfield two weeks later, a double that Regal Roller completed in 2004.

While some of the elite horses may choose to wait until later in the carnival to make their first up runs there’s always plenty of quality in the race.

Shoot Out won the 2010 event on the back of claiming the Bletchingly Stakes as well. In that race he beat a handy field including Melbourne Cup winner Shocking and also Heart Of Dreams.

Other top line winners include Apache Cat in 2007, Pompeii Ruler in 2006 and Victoria Derby winner Mahogany in 1994. 2015 winner Mourinho went on to taste Group 1 glory two starts later when he won the weight for age Underwood Stakes at Caulfield.
