Run over a distance of 1,600 metres, the Blamey Stakes is run as part of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

The Blamey Stakes is run under set weight plus penalty conditions and is worth $200,000 in prize money.

The Blamey Stakes was first run in 1955 when it was won by a horse called Prince Cortauld.

The race was originally run under weight-for-age conditions, however, was altered to set weights in 1981. The Blamey Stakes was run over a distance of 10 furlongs, which equates to 2,000 metres.

The Blamey Stakes is held on Newmarket Handicap Day and shares its day with the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap, Group 1 Australian Cup, Group 2 Kewney Stakes, Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes and Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy.

Notable winners of the Blamey Stakes include Rising Fast (1956), Sailor’s Guide (1957-1958), Tobin Bronze (1966-1967), Gunsynd (1973), Vo Rogue (1988-1989), Apache Cat (2007) and Whobegotyou (2011).
