The Rubiton Stakes was first held in 1989 as a listed event. In 1992 it was upgraded to Group 3, and remained at that level until 2013 when it was first ran as a Group 2 race. The race distance has changed somewhat over the years, with the initial distance of 1000m first changed to 1100m in 1997. In 2006 the race returned to 1000m for a year, but has remained at 1100m since 2007. Prior to 2010, the race was run under weight for age conditions.

A number of renowned horses have seen success in the Rubiton Stakes. Notable Rubiton Stakes winners include Redelva (1991), Schillaci (1993, 1995), Super Elegant (2003, 2004, 2005) and Lankan Rupee (2014).
