  • 2nd: #4 Barbie's Fox
  • 3rd: #1 Foxy Frida



The Ladies’ Day Vase is a Group 3 mile event held at Caulfield Racecourse during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Raced over 1600m, the Ladies’ Day Vase is open to mares aged four years and older. Run under set weights plus penalties, the Ladies’ Day Vase is an effective counter to Randwick’s Angst Stakes (1600m) in Sydney.

The Ladies’ Day Vase currently runs on Caulfield Guineas Day alongside races including the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m), Group 1 Might And Power (2000m), and the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m).

The Ladies’ Day Vase is an exciting race with an important role in the Spring Racing Carnival and runs on the opening day of the wider Caulfield Cup Carnival.

Mares tend to target the Ladies’ Day Vase as part of an ongoing spring campaign. Because it falls in the middle of October, most of the horses that contend the Ladies’ Day Vase have already had several lead up races, which makes it somewhat easier to judge form.

The Group 2 Rose Of Kingston Stakes (1400m) held at Flemington under similar conditions earlier in the month can act as a fairly good lead up race. Mares that perform well in the Ladies’ Day Vase might back-up in the Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) over the same distance at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

In 2019 the Ladies’ Day Vase winner Spanish Reef went on to run third in the Empire Rose Stakes results.

The 2023 Ladies’ Day Vase ran on Saturday October 14, 2023 as part of Melbourne’s Caulfield Guineas Day card and was won by the Symon Wilde-trained favourite Wishlor Lass ($2.20F).

Happy to tip this four-year-old Playing God mare to keep the wins coming for Peter Moody & Katherine Coleman. She chases a third win on the trot having won back-to-back Benchmark 84 races at the track in September over the 1400m. Up in grade and distance now at a mile.

Ladies’ Day Vase History

Inaugurated in its current format in 2006, the Ladies’ Day Vase has a brief history in comparison to other events at Caulfield. The Ladies’ Day Vase has always been held at Caulfield Racecourse, and will most likely remain the feature event of the middle day of the Caulfield Cup Carnival for some time to come.

The Ladies’ Day Vase provides an important opportunity for punters (and trainers) to see the participating mares perform in level company, in order to gauge their overall ability.

Originally a Listed race, the Ladies’ Day Vase was upgraded to Group 3 status in 2013. It was also referred to as the Snowhite Maintenance Classic for that year, and in the past as the carsales.com.au Classic and the Perri Cutten Classic.

Notable Ladies’ Day Vase winners include Gawne (2006), Lady Lynette (2009), Royal Commands (2010), and I Am A Star (2018).

Ladies’ Day Vase results and winning times since 2006 are listed below.
