The race was first held as a Principal race over 7 furlongs (about 1400m) in 1925 when it was won by Amounis who finished 1.5 lengths ahead of Vaals. At his next start he won the Rosehill Guineas with the same horse running 2nd to him. It was awarded the current Group 2 status in 1979 and from 1983 to 2001 it was held at Warwick Farm then moved to Randwick from 2002 to 2005 before moving to Rosehill.

In 1991 Canberra horse Dodecanise, a $300 purchase, flashed home to run 3rd from barrier 18 at Warwick Farm.
