Winners and Past Results for the Bobbie Lewis Quality.

The Bobbie Lewis Quality hosted by the Victoria Racing Club is an open race for four years olds and upwards.

The event is a Group 3 Australian quality handicap that attracts a field of handy sprinters over a distance of 1200 meters. The event is run at the Flemington Racecourse during the spring racing carnival in Melbourne.

$200,000 awaits the winner of the Bobbie Lewis Quality which is run on the same day as the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes, Danehill Stakes, and Let's Elope Stakes.

Strong contenders in the race usually head for major races during the autumn racing carnival which include the Group 1 Emirates Stakes and Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes. It is also a lead up race for horses entering the Yallambee Stakes, Toorak Handicap, and Newmarket Handicap.

The Aurie's Star Handicap, held on the first day of the spring carnival is usually a warm up race for horses that gain acceptance in the Bobbie Lewis Quality. A horse named Citadel was the first winner of the Bobbie Lewis Quality held in 1974. It remained a principal race until 1978 and was then held as a listed race until it achieved Group 3 status in 1986.

The only notable sprinter to score back to back double was Bon Hoffa in 2007 and 2008. Other horses to score impressive victories include Soldier of Fortune in 1981, Taj Quillo in 1986, Hareeba in 1994, El Mirada in 1998, Titanic Jack in 2003, Doubtful Jack in 2010, and Lone Rock in 2011.

The Bobbie Lewis Quality at Flemington usually attracts a field of handy sprinters especially horses that fancy straight tracks. The 2011 winner, Lone rock was placed fifth over a distance of 1000 meters in the Spring Review at Moonee Valley Racecourse prior to scoring a last minute upset in the Bobbie Lewis Quality.

Placed second in 2009, Gold Salute went on to lift the Zambari Handicap. A barrier mishap prevented him from competing in front for the Rupert Clarke Stakes. However, Gold Salute secured a place in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap and Emirates Stakes. Third placed in the Bobbie Lewis Quality in 2008, Orange County, two weeks later retained form to win the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.
