FUTURITY STAKES HISTORY AND GUIDE

The Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) takes place annually in February during the Melbourne Autumn Carnival and is weight-for-age race for milers/middle distance horses.

With $500,000 in prizemoney, it attracts some high quality gallopers and is part of a fantastic day of racing that includes the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m), Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m), Group 2 St George Stakes (1800m), Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) and the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m).

The race is the first leg of the Asian Mile Challenge which is a four-race international series with prizemoney totalling $12.5 million; the four races in the challenge are the Futurity Stakes, the The Dubai Duty Free in Dubai, The Champions Mile in Hong Kong and the The Yasuda Kinen in Japan. 

The most reliable lead-up race in recent times is the Group 1 C F Orr Stakes (1400m) held two weeks earlier at the same track, with eight of the past 13 Futurity winners coming through the C F Orr.

The Futurity Stakes was first run in 1897 when won by Resolute and has since been won by some of Australia’s most famous and talented horses.

Some of the country’s best gallopers have won the race during its illustrious history, including Amounis (1929), Phar Lap (1930), Ajax (1938-40), Bernborough (1946), Todman (1960), Gunsynd (1972), Manikato (1979-83 & 1984), Rubiton (1987), Vo Rogue (1988), Schillaci (1993 & 1995), Reset (2004), Fields Of Omagh (2006), Typhoon Tracy (2010), More Joyous (2011) and All Too Hard (2013).
