The Rubiton Stakes (1100m) is a Group 2 race held at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse in early – mid February each year.

Open to all horses of all ages, the Rubiton Stakes is raced under Set Weights plus Penalties conditions and offers $300,000 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:

  • Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m)
  • Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m)
  • Group 3 TS Carlyon Cup (1600m)
  • Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (C&G) (1100m)
  • Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude (F) (1100m)
  • Group 3 Geoffrey Belmaine Stakes (1200m)
  • Group 3 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m)

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). Rubiton Stakes performers may also head to Sydney and contest Rosehill’s short-distance feature, the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) with Nature Strip (2019) the latest to do the Rubiton Stakes – The Galaxy double.

The Rubiton Stakes 2022 ran on Saturday February 12, 2022 and was won by Ciaron Maher & David Eustace’s well-bred Capitalist colt Marine One ($3.10F).

Rubiton Stakes History

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). In 2017 Super Cash won the Rubiton Stakes and returned to successfully defend her title in 2018.
