Open to all horses of all ages, the Rubiton Stakes is raced under Set Weights plus Penalties conditions and offers $200,000 in total prize money.
Run on the first Group 1 race meeting of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival – CF Orr Stakes Day – the Rubiton Stakes shares the card with a host of other Group status races:

Held during February, the Rubiton Stakes is an important race for punters and helps to gauge form for later races including the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) run over the same track / distance a fortnight later on Blue Diamond Stakes Day. The Rubiton Stakes – Oakleigh Plate double was recently achieved by Lankan Rupee (2014).
