The 2017 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes is a Group 1 sprint race held at Caulfield Racecourse each year.

The race is restricted to two year old colts, fillies and geldings and is the richest two year old race in Victoria. First run in 1971, the Blue Diamond Stakes is worth over $1.5 million in prize money and is run over a distance of 1200 metres.

The most prestigious race for two year olds in Victoria, the Blue Diamond Stakes is held as part of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. The race is run under set weight conditions and was first allocated Group 1 status in 1980 after constantly attracting quality fields.

Colts and geldings in the Blue Diamond stakes are required to carry 55.5 kilograms while fillies carry 53 kilograms.

Over the years many two year old who have won the Blue Diamond Stakes have gone on to become some of Australia’s most well-known champion race horses and stud stallions, including Redoute’s Choice (1999) and Star Witness (2010). Other notable winners include Bel Esprit in 2002, Alinghi in 2004 and Reward for Effort in 2009. Hurricane Sky holds the record for fastest time for his win in 1994 with a time of 1 minute and 8.1 seconds.

In 2008, jockey Dwayne Dunn made history by winning his fourth consecutive Blue Diamond Stakes on four different horses, including Undoubtedly (2005), Nadeem (2006), Sleek Chassis (2007) and Reaan (2008).
