The W W Cockram Stakes is a Group 3 horse race which takes place over 1200 metres in early August every year forming part of the illustrious Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Worth an impressive $150,000 in prizemoney, the Cockram Stakes is a race for mares four years old and above and takes place under set weight and penalty conditions. Held at the historically-rich Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne’s south east, the Cockram Stakes takes place on the Memsie Stakes Day which is highlighted by the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m). A relatively young race, only finding its name on the list of Australian thoroughbred races in 1992, the Cockram Stakes was originally a Listed event, but found its Group Three status in 2005 which it has retained ever since.

Held so early in the spring, the Cockram Stakes is often host to classy mares kicking off their spring campaign and is a crucial event for punters to keep an eye on if they want to keep on top of upcoming form.
