The Blue Diamond Fillies Prelude is run over 1100m and offers $300,000 in prize money as of 2022.

Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) History

The Blue Diamond Fillies Prelude has been run and won since 1982 when it started out as a Listed race. It gained Group 3 status in 1986 before being run as a Group 2 feature since 2015.

For one year in 1996 it ran at Sandown Racecourse, but all other editions of the now Neds.com.au sponsored event have run at Caulfield Racecourse.

Notable recent Blue Diamond Prelude Fillies winners include Lyre (2019), Cathy (2017), Earthquake (2014), Samaready (2012), Alinghi (2004) and earlier in the race’s history Courtza (1989). The 2017 Blue Diamond Fillies Prelude winner Catchy went on to beat the boys in the Blue Diamond Stakes results next start as did Lyre two years later. Lyre also backed-up from her Blue Diamond Stakes win in 2019 to finish third next start in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) in Sydney that March.

See below for the full Blue Diamond Fillies Prelude results dating back to 2000.
