History[edit]

The race is held annually in October on Caulfield Guineas day, the first day of the MRC Spring Carnival; the conditions of the race in regard to distance and WFA is similar to the WS Cox Plate, held a fortnight after the Caulfield Stakes, and many Cox Plate contenders will use this race as a preparatory race.

During World War II the race was run at Flemington Racecourse.[3]

Bernborough, 1946 winner

The 2016 edition of the race attracted only three entries, the smallest ever G1 race in Australia with champion mare Winx scaring off potential rivals.[4]
