The Belmont sprint is one of a number of black-type races held in Perth over the winter months and horses generally arrive on the back of the Group 3 Roma Cup. Perth winter racing is some of the best in the country at that time of the year, with the spring and Melbourne Cup still a long way away.

It is not uncommon for a horse that achieves success in the Roma Cup to go on and win the Belmont sprint as was the case in 2012 with Luckygray who won both events.

With limited black-type racing taking place in Australia during the winter, the Belmont Spring always achieves attention from spectators and punters across the country.

Apart from being an exciting race, the Belmont Sprint also provides an insight into horses that will feature in Perth’s Group 1 summer races or the very best may make a tilt at the Melbourne Spring Carnival.

Belmont Racecourse

Located within the Perth metropolitan area, Belmont Park Racecourse is one of two metropolitan racecourses in the Western Australian capital.

As Perth’s winter racecourse, Belmont boasts fully enclosed facilities for spectators and the track has a circumference of 1699 metres.

The Belmont Sprint is one of the major races held at the track with the others being the Roma Cup and the Hyperion Stakes. Perth’s other racecourse, Ascot, hosts the major races later in the year and even has a meeting on Melbourne Cup 2014 day.
