The race was first run in 1973 as a Principal Race over 1850 metres and was won by Longfella. In 1979 it achieved the current Group 2 status and the distance became the current 2000 metres. From 1987 to 1989 it was called the Carringbush Cup.

It is a major lead-up to the Derby.

Normally it is raced on Tancred Stakes day as part of a super Saturday with 8 Group races. In 2022 the meeting was abandoned after race 3 and the remaining Group races, including this, were held at Newcastle the following Monday. The distance was reduced from 2000m to 1850m.
