The race was first held in 2012 when it was won by Sea Lord, and in it’s short history has had a variety of names including the Drummond Golf Stakes, The Cup Club Stakes, SAJ Fruit Supply Stakes and the Strathmore Community Bendigo Bank Stakes.
In 2019 the race was won by The Inevitable, ahead of Deprive and Spirit of Valor and paid $3.10 for punters. His time of 1:10.53 narrowly missed the race record held by inaugural winner Sea Lord.
The race has been won by some notable horses including Voodoo Lad and Brave Smash. 2016 winner Voodoo Lad amassed almost $2 million in prize money and won the 2018 Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes. 2017 winner Brave Smash won almost $3 million in prize money and claimed victory in two Group 1 races.
No horse has won the Chandler Macleod Stakes more than once but trainer Darren Weir won it in 2016, 2017 and 2018 with three different horses.
