  • 1st: #1 Hartnell
  • 2nd: #10 Single Gaze
  • 3rd: #4 Brave Smash



The Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes is a Group 1 race, the first of the calendar year, held at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse in early to mid February. This Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival event is a weight-for-age race run over 1400m and is worth $500,000 in prize money.

The ideal lead-up race into the Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes field is Moonee Valley’s Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) that produced five winners from 2011-2018 including champion mare Black Caviar (2012) who did the double.

The next-up option for most Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes horses is a return to the same track and distance a fortnight later for the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m), a double last completed by Black Heart Bart (2017).

The 2018 Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes took place on Saturday February 10, 2018 and was won first-up by the Godolphin galloper Hartnell.

CF Orr Stakes History

Two horses have managed to win the CF Orr Stakes three consecutive times, Vo Rogue from 1988 to 1990 and Manikato from 1979 to 1981.

From 1925, when The Night Patrol won the first CF Orr Stakes, until 1992 the event possessed Group 2 status. Between 1925 and 1942, the CF Orr Stakes was a weight-for-age race with penalties however this was then changed to handicap conditions until 1945.

Originally an 8 furlong race (approx. 1600m); the CF Orr Stakes also underwent various location changes. Between 1925 and 1940, the race was held at Williamstown Racecourse. In the 1940s, it was switched between Moonee Valley and Flemington and in 1966 and 1996, it took place at Sandown Racecourse.
