The Ladbrokes Zeditave Stakes is a Group 3 race held at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne on Blue Diamond Stakes Day each February.

The Ladbrokes Zeditave Stakes is a popular target for in-form three year old colts and geldings heading towards tougher races in autumn carnival including Sydney’s Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) at Randwick during The Championships in April.

Held over 1200m under set weights plus penalties conditions, the Ladbrokes Zeditave Stakes pays $150,000 prize money. It is a fairly lucrative race for that time of year, and is often employed as a leadup race to the autumn carnival at Caulfield. With so many major races following it, many trainers direct their better three year olds towards this race.

Prior to the Ladbrokes Zeditave Stakes, there are few lead-up races to consider. Many horses contest the Zeditave Stakes first up or near enough to as part of their return to racing following a break after the spring racing carnival.

The 2017 Ladbrokes Zeditave Stakes ran on February 25, 2017 at Caulfield Racecourse.
