The Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes is a Group 1 race, the first of the calendar year, currently held at Caulfield Racecourse in early to mid February. This Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival event is a weight-for-age race run over 1400m and is worth $750,000 in prize money.

The ideal lead-up race into the CF Orr Stakes field is Moonee Valley’s Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) that produced seven winners from 2011-2021 including champion mare Black Caviar (2012) who did the double and Streets Of Avalon (2021) who was the last horse to win both races.

The next-up option for most CF Orr Stakes horses is a return to the same track and distance a fortnight later for the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m), a double last completed by Black Heart Bart (2017).

The 2022 CF Orr Stakes form was franked with the winner Tofane running a next-up third in the Futurity Stakes. She also went on to place second in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes that autumn behind Cascadian who had run third in the CF Orr earlier in his prep. Cascadian further franked the form with a successful spring campaign later that year.

The 2022 Orr Stakes runner-up Lighthouse meanwhile went on to finish second in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes next start before her Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) victory in Sydney.

The CF Orr may also serve as an early lead-up into The All-Star Mile (1600m) which in 2024 runs back at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday March 16 offering a reduced $4 million in total prize money.

The 2024 Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes takes place on Saturday February 10, 2024 at Caulfield Racecourse.

CF Orr Stakes History

Two horses have managed to win the CF Orr Stakes three consecutive times, Vo Rogue from 1988 to 1990 and Manikato from 1979 to 1981.

From 1925, when The Night Patrol won the first CF Orr Stakes, until 1992 the event possessed Group 2 status. Between 1925 and 1942, the CF Orr Stakes was a weight-for-age race with penalties however this was then changed to handicap conditions until 1945.

Originally an eight furlong race (approx. 1600m); the CF Orr Stakes also underwent various location changes. Between 1925 and 1940, the race was held at Williamstown Racecourse. In the 1940s, it was switched between Moonee Valley and Flemington and in 1966 and 1996, it took place at Sandown Racecourse.

Eight three-year-olds have won the CF Orr Stakes with Alabama Express (2020), the colt emulating his sire Redoute’s Choice (2000) from 20 years earlier, followed by protest winner Jacquinot (2023) the two most recent.

There was drama in the 2023 C.F. Orr Stakes, run at Sandown Hillside, with Gentleman Roy first past the post before being relegated to second after a successful protest by the colt Jacquinot who was elevated into first.
