The Tristarc Stakes is a quality Group 2 thoroughbred event held as part of the coveted Melbourne Spring Carnival on one of the most anticipated days of racing, Caulfield Cup Day. Taking place on a Saturday in mid to late October, Caulfield Cup Day features a host of Group races including the: Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m), Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m) and Group 3 Caulfield Classic (2000m).

The Tristarc Stakes is run over the sprint distance of 1400m by a solid field of mares under set weights plus penalties and is worth $300,000. It is a great middle distance sprint for mares heading towards prestigious events including the Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) on Victoria Derby Day or the Group 2 Matriach Stakes (2000m) on Mackinnon Stakes Day.

The set weights conditions that the race is run under ensures that the higher seeded females claim victory more often than not. In recent years the Tristarc Stakes has been a decent guide to the Empire Rose Stakes (formerly the Myer Classic), with Red Tracer (2013) the last to do the double.

The 2021 Tristarc Stakes ran on Saturday October 16, 2021 and was won by the Godolphin-raced favourite Colette ($2.45)
