The Zeditave Stakes is a Group 3 race held at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne on Blue Diamond Stakes Day each February.

The Zeditave Stakes is a popular target for in-form three year old colts and geldings heading towards tougher races in autumn carnival including Sydney’s Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) at Randwick during The Championships in April. In 2017 the Zeditave Stakes third placegetter Derryn went on to win the Arrowfield 3YO Sprint three runs later in Sydney.

Held over 1200m under set weights plus penalties conditions, the Zeditave Stakes pays $160,000 prize money. It is a fairly lucrative race for that time of year, and is often employed as a lead-up race to the autumn carnival at Caulfield. With so many major races following it, many trainers direct their better three year olds towards this race.

Prior to the Zeditave Stakes, there are few lead-up races to consider. Many horses contest the Zeditave Stakes first up or near enough to as part of their return to racing following a break after the spring racing carnival.

The 2021 Neds Zeditave Stakes ran on Saturday February 20, 2021 at Caulfield Racecourse and was won by the Peter Moody-trained favourite Oxley Road.
