The 2018 Futurity Stakes is a Group 1 WFA race run at Caulfield on Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes Day a fortnight after the CF Orr Stakes.



The Futurity Stakes is a Group 1 weight-for-age race held at Caulfield Racecourse in late February on Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes Day each Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over a middle sprint distance of 1400m, the country’s best sprinters and milers compete for a chance to win $500,000 in prize money.

The Futurity Stakes makes up the first leg of the Asian Mile Challenge, which is a four race international series worth $12.5 million. The Futurity Stakes is jointly organised by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, the Japan Racing Association, the Melbourne Racing Club and the Dubai Racing Club.

There are three Group 1 races held at the meeting with the Futurity Stakes joined by the Group 1 $1.5 million Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) – Victoria’s premier race for two-year-olds – and the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) for sprinters.

Many horses in the Futurity Stakes field come off an earlier autumn run at Caulfield a fortnight earlier in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m). Recent horses to complete the CF Orr – Futurity Stakes double include Black Heart Bart (2017), Moment Of Change (2014) and All Too Hard (2013).

The 2018 Futurity Stakes runs on Saturday February 24, 2018 at Caulfield Racecourse.

Futurity Stakes History

Founded in 1897, the Futurity Stakes was first won by Resolute and has so far featured several champion horses including three time winner Ajax with victories in the 1938 to 1940 Futurity Stakes races. Racing legend Manikato managed one step better by winning the race four times in 1979 to 1981 and again in 1983. Prior to 2006, the Futurity Stakes was a 1400m race which was also held over 1800m in 1979.
