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.
