History

The race is held annually in October on Caulfield Guineas day, the first day of the MRC Spring Carnival.

During World War II the race was run at Flemington Racecourse. [2]

The G1 1400 metre Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes, held three weeks earlier under the same handicap conditions at Caulfield is considered the predominant lead up race. Thoroughbreds which perform well usually follow up by entering the G1 Cantala Stakes on Victoria Derby day. [3] Some of the classier thoroughbreds do extend in distance and are successful. [1]
