Accomplishing the Furious Stakes/Tea Rose Stakes/Flight Stakes treble is a hard victory but has there have been three successful fillies including Unwordly (2000), Danglissa (1999) and Sunline (1998).

The fastest race time was recorded in 2009 when Melito crossed the finish line in 1 minute 21.54 seconds. The slowest time was by Belle Jamie in 1978 with 1 minute 29 seconds. Between 2001 and 2012, the race was run over 1400m. From 2013 onwards it has been contested over 1200m.
